I have a lot of other issues, and it's really nice to be able to write this one off for another year! LOL emoticon

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Yes, I do feel better when I do low carb, last night after supper for my snack I had an orange, this morning my FBS was 163, but my body is in a lot of pain right now, my left hip and left knee have a little pain, my Boyfriend says it's Rhumatism, I say it's time to see the Dr. to figure out why. NIGHTSTAR-71, sounds like you are doing okay with your A1c- my last check-up my A1c was 6.4, have a great day everyone

I am not one who can help with diet. I eat what I want to eat, and when I want to eat, and how much I want to eat. So, it looks like I do not eat right. But it is not the case. I just never was able to get the comfort with all these math, carbs, call, and so on.
Me diet is simple. I eat chicken, simple plane chicken without skin or fat. My liver is too complicated for fat.
I like meat, so my man do many jars to be sure we can use them at any time. I cannot eat canned food. But home made is very good, only a little bit salt, and this is all. We all the time do have canned soup. I love it.
In Summer we can mushrooms if my man able to collect them. I am no longer go to forest.
I drink coffee and tea. Also we take a lot of mineral water from Saratoga Springs. We collect water two times a year and bring it home in 5Gl. blue barrels.
And there are seasonal F&Veg.
I do not think I eat wrong. I am diabetic type 2. I need to take a lot of Insulin, and this is why body got so huge.
Just a few years ago A1c was 9.4%. Probably higher, but I did not go to clinic, I had no health plan and no money to pay. Now my last A1c = 5.6%. From 2014 from 9.4% and sugar 599mg/dl I dropped down to 5.6% and sugar under 100 mg/dl.
As I just said, I do not take any medicine for diabetes, but Insulin, Lantus Solo Star.
take care

JANICE Do you feel better when you eat right? I sure do! Boy my body definately tells me when I'm doing good or not! I like you, I just can't have stuff around or buy a larger amount and think I will portion it, no way, I can't eat just one/1

emoticon , it just takes some figuring out what to eat, and when to eat snacks, I'm trying different things to try and lower my FBS , when I lower my carbs, my FBS is lower and I'm trying not to eat any sweets anymore, it's like eating potato chips,I can't eat just one. Have a good day all and emoticon

I have problems with the diabetes and with completely stopping everything that I enjoy eating. I am trying to keep carbs low and keeping portions low enough on things like sweets that I can enjoy them once in a while. Otherwise I end up bingeing on them which I know is bad. I had been on metformin, but that caused such problems that I couldn't leave the house, so I have been trying to control things through diet and exercise. Unfortunately, that isn't working out anymore.

I hope that you have success in getting your A1c down.

I'm glad! I love that I can do that on Sparkpeople and it will even provide a shopping list!... emoticon
Sadly, I don't have access to internet at home right now. My laptop has a virus or something and won't even accept my password to open windows! Ugh!
I'm using my neighbor's right now... and need to go home soon, I'm on a colon cleanse regimen, prepping for a colonoscopy Tuesday morning! Ugh again! LOL
Kind of messes with my menu for the week...

Keep up the good work!
Kathy emoticon
