    Have to agree. I find cheese rather addictive. Good for BS control, not so sure about waistline control.:):):)

    @Jazz97 . Welcome to the forum. Welcome to the more “ realistic “ part of the forum.
    As @Knikki says “ less serious “ but probably most helpful section of the forum.
    And if you haven’t got a clue what he’s on about with Ishimura, Aegis V11 or whatever then you’re not the only one:).

    My evening out at the local pop up cinema was a lovely night out.. Licenced bar & Nepalese menu on offer. Sampled a bit of both & the BGs actually faired quite well as the closing credits rolled on the movie..
    "Bohemian rhapsody." Was it me? Towards the end of the flick, Freddie started to look more like a dead ringer for young Oliver Reed?? (Camera angles whilst seated at the piano..)

    All in all, a great film.. Without giving away too many "spoilers." ;)

    Hi,
    I feel it would be more appropriate to suggest this topic (like a couple of other sub fora designated areas.) has the flexibility to explore diverse subject matter for like minded folk, whilst staying within the ethos rules covering the forum as a whole. :)

    Just a thought - sugar free doesn't always mean carbohydrate free, and carbs of any kind is what we're injecting for. Reading packets also becomes second nature ;)

    Have been reading every packet I come across! These ones I found are 8.9g per biscuit, so I just have one at a time
    Cant wait to start understanding what km actually looking for better, but going by what the nurse said, it could be a while before they'll refer me to a carb counting course. So i guess it's just guess work for now!

    I thought the film was brilliant :joyful: I'm not a buyer of his/ Queens music, but you just can't help singing along to the music, he was a brilliant songwriter and a showman :)

    Cheese is like crack, it’s so addictive...

    Guys, I’m doing the world’s fastest zip line for charity in June, would anyone object (@Jaylee ? Would this be ok?) if I posted my Just Giving link?

    A thread, that is is invaluable to type 1's management. It's great to have a banter too as we know the pitfall's of trying to get it right, but diabetes doesn't always play ball :rolleyes: +:wacky: +:mad: sometimes an :oops: and a :stop: plus other member's posts too who have another type of diabetes. Some tip top helpful and kind member's about, who know whats it's like on a day to day basis, long may it continue <3 :happy:

    I'm trying to gain weight at the moment (which I know will happen naturally anyway, but still) so am gobbling up all the cheese!

    @Jaylee . I’m sure that if I have contravened any forum rules I will be dealt with accordingly.
    This is a thread aimed purely and simply at T1 diabetics, it isn’t a closed shop and everyone and anyone is free to contribute.
    But, and this is only my opinion , this thread offers the most useful place for type 1 diabetics to gain information. Taking into account the OP new diagnosis my use of words “ realistic “ and “ less serious” seemed the most welcoming and reassuring at what is likely to be a stressful time.
    I have no intention of undermining any other part of the forum, but as a T1 my main priority is helping and assisting people who have a condition that I live with and understand.

    Bohemian Rhapsody is a brilliant film! Saw it at the cinema, and cant wait to watch it again! My mum bought it as soon as it came out on DVD. She's always been a fan of the music, so I don't need to convince her to watch it with me again!

    Yeah - I always feel I can't really offer advice to T2's 'cos I am out of my area with that, but with T1 I feel I understand and I might be able to help.

    Even just giving a virtual hug can help when times are tough and seem hopeless :)
