My first Doctor's Appointment after my diagnoses of type 2 diabetes, on February 21, 2013, is this Friday. I am excited to show my Dr how well I'm doing. My blood sugar is averaging 123 for 30 days, I've lost at least half of the 20 lbs my Doctor wanted me to lose. I haven't weighed myself, but I have lost a full size since February, so I must've lost some weight. I feel much more energetic than I ever have. I am sleeping better and my mood has improved. I am keeping my blood sugar consistently below 140 and above 90.
In short, I am proud of myself and can't wait to show the Dr how well I'm doing. I know I have a long life ahead of me and I plan on keeping my good habits up.

My Doctor's appointment went so well!!! I have lost a total of 18 lbs since diagnosis, which brings the total to 58 lbs since last summer. My numbers are getting more stable and the doctor said to keep up the good luck. She said if I get down to 170lbs, she will let me see if I can get off of the metformin and manage my Diabetes by diet and exercise alone. I am proud of myself and my hubby is grumping about me having to buy more new clothes. I'm just glad the sizes are going down instead of up. Next step is to start an exercise routine.
Thank you all for your kind comments!
