To Mem, I have days where I'm just grieving too. I can't deny how much better I feel by following the LCHF way of life, but I just miss those chocolate cake days.
I already miss the chocolate cake days too. Doesn't mean I am going to cave and eat it, but I miss it. I assumed that most diabetics had a grieving period. It is hard to give up all those foods we love that are bad for us. It is like losing a good friend, even if the friend was hurting us.

Just wanted to add that I spoke with my doctor's office today. I had emailed her my BG numbers from the last few days. She was particulary concerned with my fasting numbers and has increased my Levemir, from 30 u at bedtime to 36. She is allowing me to experiment in a sense with the meal-time Novalog, and adjust as I see fit. My cravings are easing some so now I am planning to buckle down more on my diet.

I thank all of you for the support, encouragement and advice.

If you look in our Recipes sub forum, you will find several recipes for Chocolate cake that will be surprisingly yummy!!

MCS has a great one here.

Can't remember where I found this chocolate cake, but my DD made it for my birthday a couple of years ago and it was outstanding. It needs to sit a day before eating, but it gets better each day!

And here's another one!

If you look around you can find a lc/hf version of almost every recipe you want!!

VeeJay - Bacon is one of those foods most of us can splurge on! I usually go 4 to 6 slices a day. Helped me lose 30+ pounds in 4 months and my a1c has gone from 6.4 to 4.9 (as of yesterday).
