    Calling all diabetics

    What is your blood sugar reading after a meal ? About just after an hour out from eating it? Mine was 8.4 . I used a friendís machine.

    Do you take insulin?

    I try to keep my blood sugar level at 120 or under at all times.

    Nope. Not metformin either. My doctor wants me to try diet and exercise long before medication. I was only diagnosed in Oct.

    Exercise is really; beneficial. It lowers your blood sugar. What is your number upon waking?

    I hate to tell you this but all I ate last night at my sister's house for Thanksgiving potluck was turkey and a salad! I love mashed potatoes, my mother's divine gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, corn casserole, green bean & mushroom casserole made w/o canned soups & w/o canned green beans (used only fresh green beans) and pumpkin, apple and peach pies but I didn't eat any of it. I cooked the majority of the food and all appetizers, washed pots 'n pans 'n utensils, platters, bowls and anything that didn't fit in the dishwasher despite using paper plates. I helped my mother make huge batches of gravy. We had 40 guests! I just watch everyone else eat, laugh and have a good time which made me happy.

    I did eat a few appetizers which I made and I can't eat like that habitually but once a year is ok. I awoke with puffy eyes because I retain water if I eat anything salty the day before. Today is detox day. I'm drinking a lot of hot green tea!

    My hands and feet hurt from working the party yesterday. Exercise is planned for tomorrow after a day of rest!

    I have to be careful. My maternal grandfather and uncle are both diabetics as it runs in the family.

    Wait, your Thanksgiving is in Oct? Is it due to convenience and that's the only time the family, relatives and in-laws can get together? Is it due to scheduling? Or, is your TG (Thanksgiving) traditionally celebrated in Oct instead of Nov? I'm confused.
