So, I posted here about 2 months ago that I was diagnosed Pre-Diabetes after a full blood test and visit to the Doctor. It shook me. The Doctor gave me a list of things to eat, a list of things to avoid, and an order to exercise.
I found Diabetic Connect and that was a big help. You guys steered me in the right direction, corrected some of my mis-information, and helped me choose a good path.
It has been about 2 months since that post and I've been working hard on the changes. Went back to the Doctor and he looked at me and said "How did you DO it?"
My bad cholesterol had come down into the good zone, my good cholesterol had risen up into the good zone, by blood sugar was completely normal, and I had lost about 20 pounds. I left the office on cloud 9!
But, I know it's not over, never will be. I'm continuing to make better food choices (I can't believe that I'm eating broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, carrots, celery, salad and LOVING it.). I'm hiking regularly and looking forward to the next Dr. appointment in 2 months. Thanks to all who offered advice!
