Eating on Special Occasions, Continued

I feel as if I have accomplished something great today! Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that my family and friends are a pack of gluttonous, good-for-nothing, Easter Sunday eating fools. I know some of them had great options for me to choose from. However, I am the one with the issue. I am the one that would have gulped on the gooey, goody good, and grubbed back on all the gravy and gunk. I would have done this on my own and risked experiencing a dumping episode, high sugars, and guilt. So I took matters into my own hands and did what I thought was best for me today.

I hope my sharing will encourage you to go the extra mile to prepare and make better choices as warmer holiday celebrations usher in wonderful reasons to be with family and friends. I hope you have a pleasingly-scrumptious spring and have a grill-sizzling, succulent summer! I am wishing you well and asking for strength as we make daily food decisions for positive outcomes related to our type 2 diabetes. Our friends and family will be glad we did!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of the benefits that made it cost-effective for me to go with the real healthcare (HSA) plan rather than the phony (HRA) plan is that my company is now covering "preventative" medicines at $0 copay. The formulary for these, as stated by CVS/Caremark (my pharmacy benefits provider), covers all test strips, lancets, and control solutions. I dutifully get my doctor to write up prescriptions for all of my testing needs, submit...
