Oops! Wake Up Call

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I've caught myself making a major gaffe!

I've been so hot with our weather here in northern Utah, that I started drinking McD's Caramel Frappes! Can you believe a diabetic would be so foolish?

Well, I just posted my intake on my SP Food Counter and ... gasped with horror.

Wake up call time!!! emoticon

Losing my health and eyesight are not worth the momentary pleasure.

Time to get tough with myself. emoticon

Encouragement accepted. emoticon

Hope all of you are doing well and not falling in to the same pitfalls. Have a great day!

Luv you all,

    Anything that up's your blood sugar damages you, even excessive salt, processed foods, and white flour items. Its amazing how many things, diseases can develop to take you down in diabetes. emoticon eva

    Oh, thank you, everyone! I've sure learned a hard lesson. I'd hate to start having the 'sawbones' start hacking at my feet, etc.

    Love you all for your support, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    As you know that it can also cause you to lose limbs too so that is also another thing to think about when you want one of those things. emoticon emoticon

    WOW! What a great wake Up Call. I'm glad you tracked it. Your health is much more important Twiner. We gotta keep you healthy. Those little pleasures are not worth the rest of your life. Love you.

    OH girlfriend, good you tracked it so your eyes were opened. You're right that, to me too, the momentary pleasure isn't worth the health risk as a diabetic!

    HUGS and glad you caught yourself!

    So know the feeling!! I used to guzzle slushies when it got hot! What a calorie bomb those are -pure sugar and syrup! I am saved now though. There is no confectionery near where I live and also the weather is usually too cold to be interested in one more often then not.
    You are going to have to try natural iced lemonade or tea to refresh yourself! They also have flavors you can add to water on the market too now..
    You know what you have to do, you can do anything you put your mind to! You are woman! You are strong!

    What I try to do is track treats ahead of time. That way I know exactly what I'm in for and if it's worth the calories.

    I'm sure though that if you want to resist you're strong enough to do it. emoticon
