I went out to dinner with my son and granddaughter today for Valentine's Day. We were going to go to Red Lobster where I could surely eat pretty well and still stay low carb. The wait was 1.5 hours so we didn't eat there. We ended up at this pretty nice restaurant where I ordered a petit filet mignon and grilled salmon. Sounds okay, right? Well, I ate two pieces of the wonderfully delicious but high carb crusty bread they served with the salads. THEN I ate ALL my garlic mashed potatoes. And the real kicker? Right before we went in I was going to take my Byetta. Well, there were no more doses left so I didn't even get to take my Byetta before eating so many carbs. My glucose two hours post prandial was 143. *sigh* But it was delicious.
