On Day At A Time For This Girl

So, today is the beginning of the a very new, important relationship in my life! It's the day that I actually change my new Enlite Glucose Sensor for the very first time unaccompanied; without the guidance of my Medtronic Educator right by my hip, belly, and chest. I'm pretty scaried I have to admit. I forget most of what she walked me through during our training; I'm sure it will come back to me...I'm a pretty smart Gal.I will say that I like the new BG meter and how it sends all my readings…See More

"Agreed I don't see how it is possible, even if you are having veggies with every meal that adds up quickly enough! Sure it is, but it mustn't be easy!"

"Anything from 120-200g on a normal day (but I do calorie count those as well). Although on a ride I can nail a further 200-260g. I can't work out really how it's possible to only eat 20g or so a day? love to know though :)"

"20-30 per day. I find it a slippery slope for me when I eat more, as I tend to crave more and over eat."

Buckley83 replied to LAB's discussion 'How many carbs do you eat in a day?'
"I usually get about between 50g-120g depending on activity levels. I am 95kg and about 14% body fat. I also get 250g of protein a day.. Lots of lean meat, nuts, fish.. I was working out two hours a day, doing intense interval training on about 80g…"

"I eat about 45-70 carbs per meal with daily totals of around 160 carbs when I don't skip lunch. The relationship of total carbs to a healthy weight isn't straight forward for T1. I'm lucky and careful and can eat more carbs than most…"

I'm happy that the dragonflies were a hit ♥
It's interesting how at times you just know what the person at the other end might like.
Most of all....I'm so happy you found us. I don't know how long you've had diabetes for, but I sure wish I would have had tudiabetes as an oasis when I was dx.
Snoop around at your leisure...and do not hesitate to ask questions wherever you go :)
