It doesn't feel much like Winter around here . . . it's pouring rain and the high is predicted to be 13C / 55F today.

For some reason, I'm working on the second day in a row with a high FBGL -- yesterday was 8.1 (146) and this morning is a little better at 7.6 (137) but not a lot. Hopefully things will improve, but December is seldom one of my better months.

See you all later . . .

December is going to be one of MY better months. I just need to get on top of this - I'm retired but my body doesn't need to. I even did treadmill this morning!

Funny weather here for December - just around the freezing point. They keep predicting snow and then it doesn't happen.

I am going to start recording my FBGL vis a vis what I ate for dinner. It's a drag but I want to know what's happening. I am dropping weight very slowly. I hate being our of ONEderland after it took so long to get there. I might even reinstate my ticker for this month.

Big triumph today when I resisted the Chinese Buffet although I walked right past it twice on my shopping trip. Of course, it helped that I'd had a tuna on ww bread and a skim milk when I got groceries! Planning is key.

I did not make it to Bulk Barn to get the stuff for my Christmas goodie baskets. I need to make and give them before Christmas and it's best if they are made and bestowed the same day!

For some strange reason, my FBGL is still running too high and now that I'm almost finished with the wrapping (hope to get things mailed tomorrow), I'm also developing that almost overpowering urge to bake, bake, bake that hits me every year about this time. Too bad it also comes with an urge to eat, eat, eat. Definitely not designed to keep either the blood sugar or the weight under control.

Our very strange weather still continues too -- unseasonably warm and very dull. Forecast is calling for mosgtly sunny today, but I've not seen any sign of it yet.

Have a great day . . .

BGL too low this morning - I need to add starch back into my evening meal.
Had quiche (no crust) and salad for lunch with the quilting group today and resisted a brownie/ hot fudge sundae that my "friend" was trying to share with me. She doesn't believe that No means No! I finally asked her if she had any insulin with her - that stopped the discussion dead in its tracks.

My ticker is back and so is my better attitude about healthy eating. Cold weather is NOT an excuse to eat comfort foods when I do have furnace, woodstove and electric heat plus sweaters and warm, cuddly dogs.

Another sunny and mild day -- but very, very windy. At least the FBGL is a little better this morning at 6.6 / 119.

Outsmarted myself this morning -- thought I had gotten myself a wonderful treat the other day -- a can of French Vanilla flavoured coffee. Brewed it up this morning and it smelled fantastic; both in the can and in the pot. BUT -- for me anyway, that was the end of the fantastic. Did not like it at all. Guess I'm just a boring coffee drinker. Passing it along to my neighbour -- hope somebody there enjoys it.

Hi ladies!!

I am new here I have been a diabetic fo 13years. I take oral meds. Last month I had my dr. appt. my A1c was 7.4. I am working to get better control.
I asked the dr. about byetta and she gave it to me. After I picked it up I saw all the new warnings attached to it. I have only used it a few times because I recently had gallbladder surgery(2 weeks ago) and my numbers have been great lately. Those of you who use byetta what is your opinion concerning it? Thanks for any help. The dr. told me it is my choice whether or not I want to use it.

Mercee. There is a thread on Byetta in there that you might like to check out BUT please do keep posting with us on this support thread.

FBGL not good this morning - I guess cheese and crackers with my neighbours and then meatloaf for dinner was not a brilliant move! Today will be better and exercise is definitely on the schedule. It's snowing really hard right now so winter is here no matter what the calendar says! Shovelling is cardio, right? And then there's !
