I'm 20 weeks pregnant and still struggling with the willpower to control what I eat, especially in the afternoons when I'm home by myself a lot.
I'm trying to really take my condition more seriously, test all 7 times per day, watch what I eat, and record every blood sugar, but it's hard to keep going when no one else looks at them except the Doc. once a month.
I'm now recording my daily and weekly averages in addition to each individual sugar level, trying to make it fun for myself by strategizing, watching trends and trying to beat them. But once the fun wears off, I'm afraid I'll go back to my lax attitude.
I would love an e-mail accountability partner! If you're expecting, planning a pregnancy, or just trying to keep healthy with T1, I would love to hear from you! I'd really like someone to kind of "compete" with to get the best blood sugars!
Please respond with how you keep yourself in check, or if you want to be an accountability partner with me, please e-mail Katherine.Witherell @ gmail.com (not sure if the system allows giving emails- there's not actually any spaces in the address).
