Had my follow up appointment.......
Saturday, June 27, 2009
I had my follow up apptointment with my doctor today for my diabetes. She said she hadn't seen this much improvement in such a short time, going from blood sugar levels of 342 down to as low a 124. She said I'm doing great!
I go back in a few months and get all my blood work done again. She said I should see my A1C go down. Not to 6.0-6.5 but definitely down from the 11.7 it was. I cannot wait to see these numbers!
I hopped on my elliptical last night too. Not for too long, just 5 minutes. I think I've just been a little afraid that maybe I wouldn't be able to handle it, so I didn't try. I'll admit, my thighs were feeling it, but I was able to keep my breathing steady and complete the 5 minutes. Just 10 days off cigarettes and I already feel so much better.
I have to say, if pride is a sin, then I'm a huge sinner! I'm very proud of my progress. It's been over 3 weeks on my great new nutrition lifestyle and I feel great. I look forward to spending the rest of my life enjoying the person I am now and the person I will become soon.
