I killed it.

Well, the streak ended yesterday.
First, it was the chocolate cake. My mom had just baked it, and it is was warm out of the oven. My dad was having a piece for snack, and I couldn't resist.

The guess? 30 grams.
The result? 64.
Later that night?

Virgin, of course. It was the first time I had ever had one.
The Guess? 45 grams.
The result? 326.

So thanks for all the congrats, but it's over, and I killed it. Until next time, if there IS a next time...

The ice cream, well. But the chocolate cake -- wasn't it *so* worth it?

Aside from that, I wonder why we would have to guess carb counts. Your mom would probably hand over the recipe if you asked, and unless the ice cream was made from scratch (in which case, again, you would know what went into it), the nutrition info is usually accurate enough for our purposes.

What am I missing?

Hey there,

Did you say that you started taking Symlin? If not, have you considered it? It is the best thing that ever happend to my health. My a1c is now 6.2 and I've lost 30 lbs. Expert on the drug and the disease since 9 years old. Let me know if you have questions.

Take care,

The cake was a mix. The nutritional information was for 1/32nd of the mix. If I had REALLY wanted to, I could have insisted my mom cut it into 32 equal piece. But sometimes, life just doesn't work that way.
The virgin margarita was at a resturant. If I had thrown a fit, they might have been able to come up with a carb count for me, if I was really lucky. Even then, it would have been a guess. I took the chance on thinking I knew WAG good enough. I didn't, and I paid the price.
What you are missing Felix is the fact that sometimes it just isn't worth the time, effort, and the sacrifice on appearing and feeling normal.

Good point, Jen -- my personal weaknesses are chocolate mousse and dried fruit. Give me a plate with a good-sized portion of mousse, and I will eat it, and screw the D.

Perhaps the mistake, then, is in beating oneself up over a wacky BG or two?
