I have a habit of reading labels. It comes in handy when grocery shopping
I just noticed that the latest package of toilet paper from Sam's Club says "bath tissue". I'm not sure how long it's been renamed, but I find it an odd euphemism.

I was looking for batteries. I went through a number of drawers all around the house.

Now back before I was diagnosed Iíd bought some groceries. During my hunt for batteries, I found some hidden treats.

When I came running into the living room and told my wife I found my ding dong in her secret stash...

Thought our son was going to have a heart attack.

Been missing sweets and bread so much...
Last night after eating an absolutely delicious vegetable stir fry and taste testing some very low carb pancake substitutes, which got my blood sugar up to a whopping 98, I had a dream.

I dreamed of a big, beautiful, magnificent Honey Bun! It was as big as a double king bed. I crawled up on it and rolled around. Snuggled in under the frosting like a warm blanket. I woke up to evidence that Iíd been chewing on my pillow in my sleep.

So I looked at them this morning in the gas station. 68 grams of carbs in that jumbo honey bun. My doctor told me to try and stay under 35 per meal.

I bought one. I went outside and split it with the homeless fella hanging out around the corner. I gave him about 2/3 and a $10 bill, leaving me with a snack of 22 grams approximately and him with enough money for another meal later.

I got so into it, I bit my damn finger. HARD.
It was worth it.

It's hard to stay on the straight and narrow at all times! Sounds like you found a decent compromise with the honey bun -- but sorry about your finger!

It used to figuratively kill me to throw away something I'd purchased and couldn't (shouldn't) finish eating. Once I figured out that eating all of it eventually would literally kill me, I got over it. I'm still not a fan of tossing perfectly good food -- your method is much better -- but there are times I really really want a taste of something and there is no homeless person nearby. So I buy it, eat a few bites, and I'm okay with what happens after.

Well you could always save some. It wouldnít mind eating a third of a honey bun and putting the rest in the fridge.

A little too tempting for me. And I don't typically go for the honey buns; I go for stuff like french fries and such that don't hold very well. 's OK; I don't have those urges very often.
