Thanks for the welcome! I think I understand that I have to have 5 posts or so to add a signature, so I'm working on that. Otherwise, I'm a TY2 diagnosed in July 2008, taking met and mostly "lower" carbing (fall off the wagon occasionally). Shanny, I'm on another forum with a different name (Alura) so it's good to see a familiar face - I've seen a few others here. Looking forward to learning more about all.

Terrific! Hello again, Alura . . . we're even FaceBook friends!

I think most of us lower carbers occasionally shoot ourselves in the foot . . . it was me yesterday eating a whole toasted thin bun with my morning coffee! I can get by with those little buns if I only eat half . . . and I KNOW that!

Oh, if that was all I had done lately! I baked a cake for a co-worker who had a new baby....sampled the icing then ate a hefty slice w/ice cream at work on a fairly empty stomach. Don't even know how high I was, I felt soooooo bad for the rest of the day and the next one. Won't I ever learn? If I can just keep remembering how bad I felt, maybe it will help. I didn't just shoot my foot, I massacred my leg, too.

Last night I went out for a hamburger. I order onion rings and ate the whole order. I tested afterward and was at 187. Didn't think I would go that high. But we all do it...

I think if I didn't indulge occasionally I would be a mess. I do know that it's only to be occasionally and I pick up where I left off. I admire those that have the will power to stick to the best diet. For me, though, somehow knowing I can still have a treat makes it all seem not so depressing....to each his own!
