In testing my fasting b.s. level (after getting up, but before breakfast), two days in a row, it was below 200: 179 yesterday and 175 today (the lowest ever).
I know that is still pretty high, but for me - that is a milestone in my 1.5 weeks since finding out how bad my numbers were.
I'm even teetering between 239 and 240 in the scale - I haven't seen below 250 in a few years … so to have lost about 10 lbs in roughly 3 weeks (started some changes before I knew about my blood sugar) is pretty darn good - and that was just from cutting out: sweet ice tea (now just drink unsweet), sodas, eating loads more veggies and fruit, and nearly cutting out rice, potatoes, etc. Still working on moving my butt, but client work keeps me chained to the desk (grrr).
Thanks for letting me share! =)
Have an awesome weekend everyone! =D
