Just waned to "shout it from the rooftops" about my great blood work results! I'm 29 years old, and have been struggling with diabetes for 5 months now. I've lost 10-15 lbs in the past 5 months, eating well, etc. I don't have diabetes in my family, and I'm not overweight (my BMI is 23), so I've been struggling with why I have diabetes in the first place. However, I went to the Dr. yesterday. My BMI is 6.1 (down from 10.1 in November, 7.8 in January), and my cholesterol is 181, down 100 points in 5 months! I'm ecstatic! It just encourages me to see on a piece of paper that all my hard work is paying off, and I am in good health. I take 4 shots a day, I watch what I eat, I do all of this for myself, my husband, and my 3 beautiful children, and IT IS WORTH IT!
