I just love this forum. I want to add friends' names, please don't take it personally if I haven't added you yet - I'm still learning how. You've all made me feel so welcome.

I did well with my sugar today, til early evening. Then I lost control, sugar went over 250, took the Novolog, will test before I turn in. It's 3:44 a.m.

Gosh, I wish I had a dollar for every hour I've spent on my computer today and yesterday. It's very addictive, as you all know. But - fun! My husband is glad I joined because it's added a new interest for me. I do have other interests, of course, and I find life - fascinating! I really do.

Tomorrow I definitely go grocery shopping. I will not be buying things I shouldn't have. That's the only way I'm gonna stop myself from eating all the things that are bad for me. Just refuse to have it in the house. Oh, my husband brought home a whole lotta pre-made sugar-free jellos today. I enjoy those. I'll see you all later on. I wish everyone peace and happiness :)

well Rosa it's nice having people like yourself being totally honest. :) We're all human and it helps when we can share our successes and failures with each other. This forum has been great for that.... I was not a forum person really prior to finding this one and I certainly didn't discuss my diabetes in any depth with anyone. I just want to also say thanks to everyone for support :D

It does take awhile to figure out what foods spike you. Be careful about some of the sugar free jellos, make sure there is no malodextrine in them. I think Walmart makes some without it.

hello Rosa *waves* nice to meet you

Meps you are so right...I've never been able to talk to anyone about it...you cant see it...sometimes I feel like I'm acting like a victim when I say anything to family and friends...

This forum is like a validation...I have felt so much more settled since I found it

Good for you, Rosa. Just remember that not getting enough sleep can spike you as well. And if you're using any of the Jello sugar-free puddings, make sure you use heavy whipping cream instead of milk. :)

From my experience, the only jellos that don't have any added anything are the ones that already made in the cups. The powder mixes are made with sugar alcohols.
