Today I am a happy camper! Last July I got the word from the doctor that my "sugar" was "right there", meaning at the point of being declared diabetic. I weighed 275 pounds and had been battling high blood pressure for years. I was finally scared enough to do something - anything! I started watching the diet and dropped 18 pounds before bumping into Sparkpeople in November 2011. To skip all the details, I'm now 235 pounds and walking 2.5 miles at a clip 4 - 5 times a week. My BP last week was 130/80 and today I learned my HGBAIC is 5.8! My meds have been reduced and now I'm going for a walk! As an aside, I'm 65 years old (male) and my total cholesterol is 123 - Zocar has been cut in half. OK, folks - I caught my Spark ... now go after yours! Thanks, SparkPeople!
