So yesterday was my first official check up after being diagnosed in February of this year with type 2 Diabetes. I had an appointment in April, but it was more of a "how ya doing? How are you handling it?" sort of appointment. This time my Doctor checked my A1C, Cholesterol and did a general panel. In April's appointment my doctor said she wanted me to be below 200 lbs for this appointment.
I am very proud and happy to report that I did manage to lose enough weight to be under 200 lbs - something I haven't been since high school. I am only 20 lbs away from my goal - the weight at which my doctor will let me try to manage my Diabetes without any medicine. My A1C has gone from 9.4 in February to 5.8. I feel awesome!
SO i just had to brag a little about how well I'm doing.
