Default tail between my legs

Hello everyone I'm back. I finally admitted to myself that I'm a diabetic. My aunt died about a month ago from complications of diabetes. I can't play the game that I played with my diabetes anymore. I'm seeing my family doctor my certified diabetes educator and a dietician once a month. In a couple of weeks I should be on u500. I'm really doing it. I'm so happy I didn't delete this app from iphone. I'm home to stay and I hope to make some new family members. I've learned I have to keep a schedule so I'm off to bed goodnight everybody.

Welcome back, Yoopy - good to see you.

Very sorry to hear about your aunt. If this sticks, this business about you taking care of yourself, she'll be one happy spirit.

I think we all need to take that first step, admitting that we have Diabetes. Once you do that you can make all sorts of changes. My HbA1c was much higher than yours 5 years ago and now am in the low 5's. I still eat fantastic but I just don't eat carbs.

Yoopy hello and welcome I have read your last threads and just had to post.My hubby was DX Type2 Nov. 30th with an A1C of 12.3 yesterday was his 3 month check up and his A1C was 5.7 in only 3 months. You can do this I feel if my husband could do this anyone can you just have to be ready for a change in lifestyle and determined. It would help if your wife buys the groceries if she could read some of the post here to help with a shopping list. We live in Texas and my husband is a country boy raised on fried foods and taters and lots of bread. I cut all his bread,pasta,rice,potatoes out right away. 3-4 eggs with just as much bacon or sausage and there is no need for the toast. A big salad for lunch and top with bacon,taco meat or grilled chicken is his lunch. Dinner is all the meat he wants with a salad and a vegetable no bread no potato. I use coconut oil or olive oil in the steamed veggies add fat anywhere I can and he gets full and is happy. He feels so much better now he no longer naps at 4:30pm everyday he has lost 44 pounds and his vision has cleared. You CAN do this I learned everything here on this forum. My husband has not been to a dietitian or endro dr only our small town family Dr. Good luck to you and read as much as you can here on the forum people here have lots of first hand knowledge.

Thank you Donella. My wife and I are working hard to get all of this under control. Tomorrow I'm going to ask for no toast with breakfast just eggs and sausage and a salad. It's a good thing I love salad. I only use a small amount of any dressing so I don't have much craving for it. Thanks again.

There is a sausage and egg muffin I make you may like to try
12 beaten eggs
1/2-1 lb browned sausage crumbled
2 diced jalapeņos
2-3 TBS hot Rotel tomatoes drained
couple splashes cream
shredded monterey jack cheese
cayenne pepper,garlic and black pepper

spray muffin pan with nonstick spray. cook at 350 for 20-25 mins makes 18 muffins. They freeze well and just nuke about 30 seconds they are filling and my husband loves them. Also just to make things easy for me I will cook a whole pkg of bacon or sausage on Sunday night put it in a ziplock and fridge it last all week just nuke for 25 seconds and fry up eggs makes breakfast quick and easy for me
