Jeannie, I'm sitting here laughing at "everything in the house." I usually say "everything except the house." We just moved across country, and I'm unpacking while hubby is at the old house painting this week. Last night, I ate half a bag of Nutter Butter cookies. After all, peanut butter is a good snack, right?
I was on steroids for quite a while for my IBD, and had borderline blood sugars and A1C's during that time. My wonderful internist chose to treat aggressively, putting me on the diet and exercise regimen, and ever since I've been well within the normal range. For the most part (never mind last night, I can't undo that) I try to stay on the regimen still. Even though I'm off steroids, I choose to assume DM lurks around the corner for me if I go too wild, so having cookies in the house is a real rarity.
