Okay, after 2 full months of eating right (low carbs <50 gms. a day) I could not muster up the will power not to eat an oatmeal pancake...make that 2 of them!  My favorite from my childhood....my son had been visiting my sister's house and she made him oatmeal pancakes...he comes home and asks me to make him some for lunch.  I do.  I was getting very hungry, my bgl was 73 so I definitely needed to eat and when I start getting that low, I seem to lose all my will power.  It was not hard to say yes to a couple of pancakes myself.  I guess the only redeeming quality is that I like them with butter and sugar so I substituted splenda for the sugar...it could have been worse, I could have eaten them with syrup.  Then I ate two cheese sticks trying to get some fat and protein.  Now I wait, I am sure my bgl will skyrocket!  They were soooo good...just as good as I remember them.  I am somewhat disappointed that I could not say no to them...

Oh No! Say it isn't so!!!

Yeesh... you must be human or something :-)

Don't be so hard on yourself, Joan. You've been doing really well with the diet and a couple of pancakes isn't going to break it. You were at a great BGL to "indulge" a bit and the oatmeal is definitely a better option than white flour ones would've been. Hey, oatmeal can even be good for cholesterol! The fat in the butter would help even out the rise in BGL, too.

Maybe don't go so long before having them again and you might be able to have just one, once in a while :-)

Curious... what was your 2-hour PP BGL?

Cheers,
Kris

You are forgiven -- as long as you forgive me my tsp. of strawberry jam once in a while ;-)

Don't sweat it too much Joan. I haven't found any data that supports the idea that occasional spikes cause damage. Everything I've read seems to point towards sustained high BGL causing the most trouble.

Now, that doesn't mean "YIPPEEE! Pass the pancakes & syrup!"

It means "The Low-Carb Wagon will be leaving in 5 minutes - everybody get back on!" ;-)
