Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

84 carbs: Saturday Snapshots

Click for the Saturday Snapshots - Saturday 5/19 Link List.
Back for the third year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like!  With a nod to the Diabetes 365 project, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures.  Post as many or as few as you’d like.  Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

 This is Rosie's lunch today. It's a pretty typical lazy Saturday lunch at our house: quick and easy. The kids love these trays with little compartments. They prefer to have something different in each section, which means they often eat meals like this with a few tomatoes, a few fruits, etc.

Today's menu: frozen pizza square, 5 crackers, 2 strawberries, 3 blackberries, a banana, 5 grape tomatoes, and sugar-free grape punch.    And yes, if you're wondering, that IS the last of the fresh fruit in the house... hence the odd portion sizes & browning banana.  Obviously I need to stop by the grocery store later, LOL!

The carb count is a little high on this meal, but it's ok, because supper (baked chicken, green beans, and some yet-undetermined side dish) will be pretty low-carb, and she had 43 carbs for breakfast.  We don't really limit carbs but I try to average out to about 60 or less per meal over a typical day.  Lunch is almost always her highest-carb meal.

Link up through the link above and share a snapshot from YOUR d-life today as a part of Diabetes Blog Week 2012!

  1. I love those plates! How interesting on how lunch is Rosie's highest carb meal of the day... It's usually Elise's lowest. Sometimes only 20g!


Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
