Had a physical today and although I am not happy about only losing 5 lbs since I started my exercise program the results of my Hemoglobin A1C dropped into the normal "diabetic" range. I went from 11. 8 to 6.7. I have joined a gym and I go every 2nd day. I spend 30 minutes doing weights and 30 minutes of cardio. I sweat unmercifully. My doc told me not to focus on the weight but to focus on the benefits I'm getting. I like building muscle, it feels better than jiggly fat but I am in no way close to looking like a weight lifter. I still have a muffin top and a back fat line I don't like.
Doc won't take me off any of my meds though. I'm on Metformin, Junuvia and Repaglinide, along with Rampril and Rovastatin.
I hope to come off of some of these in the future.
