This Is So Me!

Last week, HB (HoneyBunny) had two routine doctor appointments.  Both doctors keyed in on his Diabetes and scared the daylights out of him.  He was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes about three years ago, but just cannot get his head around the importance of watching how many carbs he eats - especially sugary stuff! 

After hearing the two docs tell him he needs to get serious and that it is in the end  a matter of life or death, he came home determined not to eat the foods that will make his numbers go up.  Our current diet is not filled with deep fried foods and dessert at every meal, but we are carbaholics and we are guilty of shoving bread, pasta and pancakes into our mouths and loving every mouthful.  So, yes, there is a lot of room for improvement.  We think we are eating well, but really...not so much.

Ta-Da...that is where I come in!  I can save his life!  I figured it out all be myself!  If I eat up all of the candy, cookies, cheesecake, ice cream and other sweet stuff around here, then HB won't be tempted to cheat on his diet!  YES!  This can work.  Isn't this just like me?  Always looking out for someone else?   Never mind that my life might be at stake if all this should clog an artery or think of HB!

So...(munch, munch)...for the next few days I will be (gulp) dining on M&M's, chocolate chip cookies, raspberry cheesecake bites (slurp), sun chips, raisins, pancakes, and whatever else is sitting around.  (Burp! - S'cuse me) 

Don't worry, I am just kidding.  In truth, I am so happy that HB is ready to try eating healthier and save himself from insulin.  He has watched my ex-husband lose two toes to diabetes and knows what is ahead if he doesn't watch himself.  So, I will do my best to support him and eat right myself...who knows, maybe I can shed a few pounds while I am at it!  Wish us luck!

  1. Thanks for your visit to my blog and I'm so glad I came by here. I am laughing because I too would be glad to eat all those sweets to save my honey. LOL....what we women will do for our men! Cute blog and I'm now a follower. I need to keep growing old with Grace myself! hugs, Linda

  2. I totally do that. I'll "finish" all the bad stuff and promise myself to never buy it again. I fail every time

  3. Good Luck! I am doing a low-carb diet. It's not so bad after you get used to it. I was born with a condition that makes me susceptible to sinus and lung infections. The organization sent a newsletter that said sugar feeds infection. That was enough to make me low-carb it!

  4. I'm not a diabetic but I can't eat any sugar! And all of the special desserts sure look good at this time of year! We just have to learn to substitute! Happy holidays! ♥

  5. Here is to hoping HB does well on his new mission!!!! Oh, and more power to you helping him, I mean by supporting him with healthy eating, I have to admit I struggle with all those vices, sweets and carbs, I love pasta!!!

  6. Ahhh, you are all so encouraging - thank you for your "hugs" er, I mean comments!

  7. I'm supposed to be on a insulin-resistant diet. Since my blood sugar is a little high. It matches proteins with carbs.

    If there are any sweets (candy, ice cream, etc) in the house; I end up eating it all so I can get it out of my sight and not worry about it any more. :) :)

    Sugar does feed infections and cancers. I'm doomed.

  8. Janet - I fear I am doomed, too! Sugar is so tempting and so easy to find in our house! I did good today when I went to the grocery store, though - sweet stuff. Whew...if I can do it again, I may be on the road to recovery!


Your comments are like hugs that warm my heart!
