Today I was dreading the doctors office. I was fully expecting to get lectured on what I need to do, instead he told me my A1C was a 6.2!. Of course I asked him to repeat that as it was my first reading under a 7.0. he then went on to tell me that I have lost another 10 lbs! I know it sounds like I am gloating but I cant help it I am so happy right now I don't know what to do lol.

Congratulations!!! My hope is for you to continue on that path. I have similar worries as I see a new MD and don't know what to expect. I was just Dx end of March and last MD I never saw only the ARNP. Not had any tests since the hospital and a bit frightened by it all. Sure am glad to hear happy news and hope I can post similar news in a couple weeks. YOU are NOT gloating…YOU should be proud and happy!!

Bob, that is wonderful! It takes so much work and dedication to get those good results!

Last week I was surprised with wonderful lab results (3 pages worth) and everything is great, and my A1C was down to 6.5. Plus in 3 mo. I had lost 13 pounds.

I know how encouraged you are! Great job!
Hugs, Pat

Congrats. You've been working pretty hard it sounds like. I get my AC done in 2 weeks. My last one was 8. Hoping it will be down to maybe 6? I've been working real hard too.

Well took the son to school. Wasn't quite what I had hoped for, he took one look in his classroom and walked away not even saying goodbye (insert inner grumbling here). I am actually glad he had a blast and was bugging us all night wanting to go back. So today he gets to try the bus for the first time I hope it goes as smoothly.

Congratulations!! You have every right to be excited. Losing 10 lbs is awesome, this is not easy to do my friend. I go to dr in March and hope I can drop my A1C too. Proud of you!!

We love to hear good news and success stories. Bringing hope to others and realizing that diabetes can be managed well is a message everyone needs to hear. As Harlen said, "Keep up the good work."
