But she not upset either.
Today I had a follow up appointment with my doctor concerning my T2 and to schedule my first A1C since I was diagnosed. She loved my numbers, saying she wished all her diabetic patients took the disease as seriously as I do, but then the proverbial hammer fell. She said that she was pleased at my weight loss, but I need to slow down or risk further damaging my heart. As of today I've lost a grand total of 60lbs since my T2 diagnosis on Sept. 1st of this year. So, I'm in a bit of a catch 22, continue to lose at my current pace, which I know I could very easily do with the diet and exercise regime I'm on and further trash my heart, or slow down by altering my diet and changing my workout routine and risk my blood glucose going haywire and potentially having to go on meds to control it. So much fun I can barely contain myself (we really need a sarcasm font :-) )
