I've always been a pretty healthy eater, low fat, whole grains etc... but once in a while (every couple months) I want fast food, or Dairy Queen or just junk food in general. My question to everyone is, do you still indulge once in a while? knowing you have to take a bunch more insulin to cover your indulgence. I'm curios to know because I really want a blizzard with the temperature being so high. (43 C tomorrow 104f)

Yeah. I guess it isn't really a milkshake...but still... so good. You look thin Mike... you could probably go for it. Welcome from another member from Ontario. :)
I know what a blizzard is, but I have never had one.
That is what I am thinking - I already have enough things that are hard to resist.
Kind of like when they tell you that a drink a day is good for your heart, but if you're not a drinker, DON'T Start!
I better quit following this thread because everyone is making me want to start!
I definitely indulge, and I LOVE Blizzards! My favorite is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard. I just usually get the smallest size, bolus well for it, and make sure to get some exercise either before or after. Enjoy it!
Son just got one of those a day I took him and his brother miniature golfing. It was the smallest (really thats all anyone needs); his cgms showed that he flatined for hours after it. He has 15-20 gram "treats" all the time, more this summer because we are having difficultly knowing his insulin needs since they have seemed to change so much since school got out. For example; tonight he's had 3 carb combo snacks(at different times) since dinner just so he won't be low before bed.
Yep!! I have never tried a Blizzard., I think I will now! I eat very little during the day, so I do allow myself to Indulge sometimes....called "Living". :)
Please do its the best ever!
So who's selling these blizzards? You guys make me want to INDULGE!! LOL!
Its my motto...People always ask how do I stay so discipline against the major no-no foods and I simply say its because when I REALLY want it to the point its almost a need, I eat it...If its just a small craving then I can over power it when I substitute....For example today is my mother's bday and I didnt have a great need for cake but later I had a sweet tooth so I had a spoon of Nutella...

104??? Yeah I would go for it
LOL, sounds like I ought to try a Blizzard, but I really prefer affogato coffee with a serve of Baileys over the icecream for my indulgence.
