84. You are doing great!

I read those labels, sure can't believe there can be that many carbs in a tablespoon of bbq sauce! I bake a loaf of bread every week or 2. I use less than a tbs of sugar to start the yeast, but several people mentioned I don't need to add even a little sugar. I have a single slice of toast from my loaf with an egg. My other big carb is 1/2 cup of ceral with a cup of coconut/almond milk. I eat almonds. If I have have a low carb count for the day, I have Triscuits broken in half with a serving of cheese. I can use a slice of bread, 2 eggs, cream butter, Stevia and spices to make a delicious bread pudding. 2 servings, 20 carbs each. I stopped using spaghetti sauce and use chopped dried tomatoes. I'll stop at McD. if I am out in the morning and get a sausage mcmuffin, no egg, 30 carbs. Otherwise, I don't eat out much. Be careful if you eat at Applebee's-how they get that many carbs in a salad is a mystery :/ If I want carbs, I check the portion and cut it in half. If I have crqavings, I drink a big glass of water and do something with my hands to see if it passes.

I've gotten my blood sugar down about 40 pts and have lost almost 30 lbs. As you mentioned, getting the blood sugar down is more important, and I finally have a useful reason to watch what I eat. I met the goals I set for myself, and made new ones.

Thanks for sharing your story. Keep up the good work.
