what dessert foods ??

what desert foods are safe for diabetics to eat. i remember my mom eating graham crackers, lorna doone short bread cookies, and wafers as well as angel food cake. are these things really safe for us to snack on? I was tempted to get an angel food cake, also is honey safe to have instead of sugar. I know about sugar substitutes but I just wanted to know about desert foods without the substitues.

You asked how I lost the 10...got my exercise routine up and started cutting back on my calories and fat more when I used to just concentrate on carbs which I have reduced as well. Believe me..I'm ready to get to that 30 like you too!!! It just takes time so I have to be patient I suppose! :0)

Well first off..congrats on losing so much weight!! That's wonderful!! I know what a struggle it is to lose weight and especially 30 lbs! You should be proud of yourself for sure!! Keep up the good work! I am trying to lose more myself..lost 10 but would like to get closer to 30 like you! I've done it before so I just need to stay motivated!

I'm sure it must make you sad to not have your friend any longer. But I bet she is close by looking over you especially when you're watching your show!! I'm sure she would also be very happy and proud of you for getting motivated with your diabetes and losing weight too! I know having diabetes is hard..I've had it for about 27 yrs now. Don't let other peoples scarey stories about diabetes bring you down..I've been hearing them practically my whole life! Just learn from them and let the stories keep you motivated to do better which it sounds like you're doing!! Just do the very best you can each day!! :0)

Hi Dobby..yes my b-day is the 30th too! How funny! Well thank you and happy birthday to you as well!! I hope you had a good one! :-) I remember leaving a comment on your page awhile back after reading your post about the loss of your friend Vikki. How have you been doing lately?

manny told us the news here about Sandy. It's funny, the other day when I was thinking about her, I couldn't remember if she was type 1 or 2, so I went to her profile (type 1.5 = type 1 diagnosed later in life) - she helped us all here, it didn't matter what kind of diabetes, color, shape, all were touched. never forget your friend. I am trying to continue Sandy's work here at tuD, if I could help one person, I know she would be proud of me. Wouldn't Vikki be cheering you on, dobby, with taking control of your diabetes? I know she would!

hey, dobby, that's ok about posting your comment, we are just so happy to hear from you. I remember you coming here after the loss of your online friend, vikki, and, as I see the one year anniversary of my friend Saundra Barragan's death coming up in about a month, I reflect on how strong some online friendships can be. I had the chance to meet our founder, Manny, this summer, and it was an experience I will never forget. TuDiabetes has helped me out more than anything the past two years.

Of course it would be fabulous if you wrote about your experiences losing weight! Why don't you blog about it? Go to Blogs on the top banner, and add one! You are so right about those portion sizes! I wish they would just list the carbs and calories on those soups as the whole can. Cambell's is the worst - they list one can of soup as 2 1/2 portions - makes it hard to figure out sometimes. glad you had a good birthday!

hey marie Thank you for your birthday wish, I am 48 years old now. and I haven't been on trudiabetes in a while but so much has happened since I was on last. I often thought about comming back and sharing but wasn't sure wether to put it on a forum or what?

first of all I have been exercising like crazy!! the doctor said My cholestrol and sugar was high and that I was a candidate for a heart attack. so that motivated me. starting in october I began to take my dogs on hour long walks, then I would come home and climb 27 steps 15 times at once, then I would finish with floor exercises like sit ups, crunches, push ups, leg lifts, pelvic thrust. my doctor told me to loose at least 12 lbs, I told her I would loose 20. well I never weighed myself until I saw the doctor again three months later, she weighed me and I had lost 30 lbs!!!! I am no longer weighing over 200lbs like before. its so exciting to say I am not 200 lbs. I have been trying to get off that 200 lbs mark for years. and on new years day I succeeded yes!!!

I have been selected to attend classes for people living with diabetes, and I am learning a lot about this disease. the reason I believe I was successful this time at loosing weight, was because I watched my serving size. before If I saw a can of soup had 110 calories I would assume the whole can was 110 calories but the serving size is just one cup. it took me awhile to understand that the 1 cup serving is 110 calories and not the whole can.

so now I eat only the amount of one cup, and I cook reciepes that have less than 100 calories per cup. by the way I have a really delicious Cabbage and chicken soup recipe that has only 80 calories per cup serving size.

so that is what I have been up to, that and the many problems and stress I face having an autistic son. his life presents with many ups and downs and my mood and stress level go up and down with him. right now he is going great in school.
