I have tried and basically succeeded in avoiding desserts of all kinds in the 20 months I have had diabetes. I still am not right with morning blood—too high, but it goes down during the day and my A1c is 6.0 and no other problems and no medicine needed. So I know I am lucky. My main problem which is so minor that I shouldn’t even mention it, but it is making things difficult. The trouble lies in having sweets. I have avoided cookies, cakes, pies, candy, and everything I love for all these months. I am not a cook, but I liked being in the kitchen fixing slice and bake cookies and having Christmas candy and snacks around. I didn’t cave for Halloween or Thanksgiving, but I am just craving some of the No-No’s. My husband loves cookies, but if I bake them, I know it will make me want several. If I eat anything sweet, I am afraid of what will happen to my blood count.
Is anyone else really missing all the Christmas goodies?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
