I am an overeater and a diabetic.Usually christmas I stuff my face with chocolate,desserts,mince pies,ice creme,crisps and all the usual savory stuff too.I did not overeat this year,good,and I stayed off all the afformentioned foods and anything containing too much sugar I did not eat.I am so pleased with myself,I stayed in a moderate balanced diet and it makes me happy that I can do this.I craved a mince pie all day and tonight I nearly gave in but instead of the sugary mince pie I had a slice of buttered toast.I hope it is ok to share this success with others here.I am so pleased with myself.

very well done Marierose

I've eaten quite a lot today
cooked meals are a bit of a novelty at the moment for me
I've counted the calories and its a lot
but not half as much as it would be if I were not counting !
when I think of how I would go back for second helpings
when I had no control

hopefully tomorrow I will be back to 2000 a day
