3 months ago I knew I needed to take control of my diabetes. I saw my Dr. Had a new panel of blood work. HA1C was 7.9. Fast forward to today. 16 pounds lighter and a HA1C of 5.8.

I knew it was time to do something. I knew I couldn't go on a diet as I always fail. I came up with a new game plan/mind set. I would just work on making better choices. I can have a piece of scrumptious looking cake or I can have just one bite. I search for good tasting snacks (I love skinny cow). I test my blood sugar a lot - sometimes 15 times a day. I do it to help keep me on track. My co workers are very supportive. They know I love corn pudding from the cafeteria. One of them will get some and give me a small amount. Some days don't go as planned. I don't fret about it, just put on my big girl panties and move on. I thought I would treat my self to a DQ blizzard last night. Instead I made my yummy strawberry smoothie. Low fat yogurt, frozen strawberries, vanilla, splenda, and 2% milk. Now I go back to see my dr. in 3 months with repeat blood work. Let's see how it goes!
