I was diagnosed in January, and I go back to my doctor tomorrow for my first follow-up checkup. I'm a bit nervous.
At first it was easy to make myself eat the right things (as best as I knew, anyway), and exercise, and all that. I checked my BG regularly, tracked everything I ate, and tracked my exercise.
Now… not so much.
At one time, I had lost 11 pounds since my visit in January. But I've gained 4 or 5 back.
I don't check my BP at home. Ever.
I skip breakfast most days.
I allow myself to eat things I know I should avoid.
In spite of that, my average BG reading has been dropping over the last 90 days, and is at 115 for the last 7 days.
The combination of positives and negatives are making me nervous about tomorrow's visit. I guess I'll know in a couple of days what the real results are.
