24hrs candy free!

I haven't had a piece of Halloween candy in over 24 hrs!  I'm so proud of myself!  I admit there are three pieces of candy sitting on the desk here, but those are the ones that my loving five year old daughter brought to me, thinking she was being nice to her mommy.  I graciously said thank you, then put them on top of the CPU case that is on the desk.  The first two were easy to put up there.  This last one was a little harder.  My sweetie came to me, her mouth full of chocolate, and gave me the "fun size" candy bar.  Fun for whom?  The smell of chocolate taunted me.  Oh how I wanted that sweet, yummy candy!  But I made a deal with myself and I plan to keep to it.  After yesterday's blog entry, I decided that if I could go 24 hrs without a piece of candy then I'd treat myself to a 44 oz diet coke from the gas station down the street.  I already have a cup from there, so the refill will only cost me 74cents.  It's not an expensive treat, but since we usually don't have soda in the house it is a special treat.

Reading the blogs of other diabetics and talking to some local people I know, it's nice to know that I'm not alone in my struggle.  Bless you all during Diabetes Awareness Month which happens to start the day after Halloween.  Coincidence?  Hmmm...
