UGH!! I had something already written out and now I have to start all over because I hit cancel instead of posting it as a discussion.
I had a doctor appointment last Friday and was nervous about going in to in, of course. All went well and she was very happy with the numbers I've had, which made me feel like I'm doing something right. I've been newly diagnosed on 11/12/14 and in December I was put on Metformin and haven't had many of the side affects like others I've read about in discussions elsewhere. I had a bit of the diarrhea and nausea in the beginning and at times now I just feel a bit blah in the morning until I get going. It's not a wanting to through up blah. I have a notebook I have things written in and I had forgotten to take it in with me that day so I'm still a bit off and lost at times with things, but know it's going to come with time. My initial A1C was a 9.1, and when I go in in April for my 3 month, I'll have blood work done and then a week later I'll have my appointment with her to go over the numbers. That's the one I'm kind of nervous about and I hope that it'll come down. I have only lost 11 pounds since being diagnosed and that first month I was sick with bronchitis to top it off with being diagnosed. Also since my last appointment, I haven't been doing much of any kind of walking or exercising, plus there was something else going on at the time of appointment last week that could have possibly not shown with maybe a few more pounds lost and the women out there will certainly understand where I will be going with this that we so love every month! I was unsure as to what kind of guide to maybe follow to where my numbers should maybe fall into and I had asked her and that did make me feel better about most of the numbers I've had. The best number I've had was after my appointment which was a 104.
