Oh yes World Diabetes Day is here!!! November 14th to be exact. It’s not really a holiday I celebrate in with cake and candles. Nor do I celebrate it with my family, over a nice Italian dinner, or with conversation and opening gifts. Too bad, I would really like that.
But I did do something different last year and I thought I would stick to it each year on World Diabetes Day. I am going to give up something for myself… some would say Dietetically Benefit Me!
Last year I gave up Bagels. Yup… I did! That’s right. And not just you’re ordinary Bagels, but them all. I felt the 120 crabs of exploding glucose rushing into my fragile insulin producing body was a good thing to limit. It was. Not to mention how to Bolus correctly for Bagels, they all are so different and hard to carb count correctly.
It was hard to do and I slipped up a few times this year, but nothing close to my weekly or biweekly habit. And I am honestly proud of it. I am not a bagel eater anymore.
So THIS year… a true challenge… I am going to give up eating FRENCH FRIES!!! Ahhh!!!
They are my next on my list! And I don’t know how I feel about it. I bet it was just like how I felt about giving up Bagels last year. I think I can do this. I know I will slip up and eat some yummy Fries… heck… I am probably going to eat fries tonight as fond farewell, I think I will.
Fries are not something I eat everyday but I do eat French Fries… gosh just writing about French Fries makes me want some, lol… So tonight, I will start my decline of the fry bandwagon so at this time next year I can honestly say…. I’m not a ______ ______ eater anymore. I’ll fill in the blanks when it’s true.

Would any of you like to start too? What will you give up?
