As I mean to go on…

My diabetes is a trial to me, just as my weight has been over the years. I have always said that if I had a healthy attitude towards food, I probably wouldn’t have been a diabetic. That said, it’s in the family with the older generations suffering, my siblings having insulin problems and my children being insulin resistant so I don’t know whether the attitude is caused by the problem or the problem is caused by the attitude! Whatever, I am the one who puts the food in my mouth so I have to take responsibility somewhere down the line and just lately, irresponsibility has been winning so I am hoping that Almased will set me on the right track and kick start me into finding the strength to override that nagging voice in my head that says I’ll be a better diabetic tomorrow. I’m off to find my blood testing machine. I only every test when I know its going to be a good result so I’ll have to hunt high and low to find it…!
