Why oh why did I do that?

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 403

I was left all alone at my daughter's flat yesterday, they are moving out today so my husband drove them to their new place with some of the more fragile things, and I was hungry, but there was nothing I could eat and I'd forgotten we were going out so I ate two small - like tiny - plain biscuits, which were very sweet, but everything tastes sweet to me these days. We did not get back until late, and when I tested two hours after eating, the meter showed 11.3 - highest ever it has recorded for me.

I know I an sensitive to sugar above all else, so why not tough it out, I tell myself now it is too late.
I found I had lost another pound overnight - but that worried me - impending insulin dependence perhaps?
Eating a few extra carbs never mattered when it was for losing weight, but now it is totally different. It really matters.
I do so want to lose enough weight that there is a chance of my diabetes going into remission.
