It’s Over…Or, Is It Just Beginning?

The food has been eaten.  The table has been cleared.  Clean-up is done.  You have made it through Thanksgiving!  Wow…it’s over.  In fact, you might have jsut enjoyed some left-overs. You just have to check your glucose…you have to get your night reading.  Or, are you too scared to do so?  I know the feeling.

You remembered to take your meds.  So, take your reading and see how you did. Is it where you wanted it to be?  Congratulations!  Is it a bit higher than you wanted to see?  Don’t be discouraged.  There is another holiday right around the corner and with a bit of planning you will do very well.  If it’s a bit high, make sure you take a look at it in the morning…is it where you want it to be?

So, a couple of bites of pie might have beaten your plan.  Or, maybe it was the potatoes or stuffing.  Maybe that glass of wine?  Yeah, that might have been it.  It’s okay.  You can get it next time – which is in about four weeks.  The thing is to keep on fighting Diabetes.

In the mean time, the stress of the holiday season might affect your numbers.  What do you need to do?  Follow your diet.  Exercise a bit five times a week.  Take your meds.  If the holidays are really getting to you, try adding five or ten minutes to your exercise time.  I know that really works for me.

You can do this.  You can control your Diabetes.  It really belongs to you and nobody else, even though you wish you could give it away.  (Just how would you wrap up Diabetes for a gift?)  How you attack and beat the disease is in direct correlation to your diet, exercise and meds.  It’s really kind of simple.

You can be successful and lead a wonderful life.  I know it.  Although, there are times I wish I could have a bit of pie…I so love pie.  Oh, well…I had way too much pie before I was diagnosed.  I guess it kind of evens out (NOT).

As always, thank you for reading.


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!
