I'm with all of you on the holidays and being diabetic at this time of year. It sucks. I did pretty good, or at least better than I have in the past, but still putting something in my mouth that did not belong there. Happy New LC/HF Year to all my fellow forum friends!

Happy New Year all! I thought I was doing OK and then without thinking, had cream of wheat this morning with brown sugar. It's kind of a "holiday" feel-good breakfast. I had cream of wheat in the past without spiking, but I think the brown sugar helped spike me to 9.4. Whee. Of course then I was logey and my BG is still higher than normal. Also forgot the Metformin yesterday. I'm just batting 1000 in 2012... not! :P

I've actually done quite well this holiday season since it was just wifey and mom-in-law for christmas dinner and they are both low carbing with me. However, we still had a few guests and I politely say hello etc... before hiding myself away. I'm just not a people person even though I have always been thought of as being one. I can understand the need to restore order to your life, Daytona. We are all on this forum talking about our ability to maintain control of our diabetes yet we have lost control over the rest of our lives during the holidays. I hope you're able to get your life back to a semblance of normality.

On a side note, I'm a Dolphins fan.... Need I say more?

Our lives got derailed in October with my husband's stroke. I did quite well for the first 2-3 weeks without turning to "comfort food." But then we ran smack into Big Family Anniversary followed immediately by Hallowe'en-Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Year's. In the midst of which, a huge life-changing decision (retirement) had to be made.

Oh, yeah. It was my first diabetic holiday season, too.

Let's just say I confirmed that I'm human. I could've done better. But, hey, I could've done much, much worse.

Right now, I relish the lovely, celebration-free months betwixt now and Easter.

I have to say that I did pretty well this holiday season...lots of temptation, but my will is stronger. All three averages (7-day, 14-day and 30-day) on my meter are all ready to drop below 100 soon, and each time I nail a good 88 or so I feel vindicated and even more motivated to avoid the carby bad guys.

Happy New Year, all! Let's make 2012 WAY better than 2011 was!
