Low-carb some more ^_^

I have been a type 2 diabetic for 5 years now and because of researching ways to improve my own health within the past year, I have developed a very strong interest in Health & Medicine. Apart from my interests in Health, I am a creative creature and have been for as long as I can remember. I paint, craft and compose music ;)

I will be studying my first year in nursing in 2013. I have just been blessed with the news that I made it into nursing school so Im over the moon. My long term goal is to become a nurse practitioner specializing in either diabetes or mental health.

I created a Sparkpage to use as a tool to better manage my health, to be around others who are going through similar things & to offer my support.

My low-carb lifestyle begins today which is desperately needed for tight blood sugar control & weight loss before Uni starts. I was able to achieve an HbA1c of 5.4 (36 mmol/mol) after 3 months on low carb, & a 12kg weight loss within 5 weeks of low carbing + P90X, so I am aiming for those HbA1c numbers again and to get within my healthy weight range in 2013. As far as exercise goes, I am aiming for only 1-2 strength training sessions per week as recommended by the low carb community. I will try it for a month & if I see no results, I'll switch it up.

Wish me luck!

Woohoo!! Congrats on your success!! You said you're so close now to being where you were a few months ago after taking a break.. so now just think where you will be a few months from today, CONTINUING with these healthy habits!! I'm so excited for you!! And I'll also be keeping my fingers (& toes) crossed for you while waiting to hear back on the admission status! Good luck, keep up the hard work... and keep getting those healthy rewards from the BF hah hah (in fact it's such a great idea, that when my guy asks me what I want for Christmas, I'm gonna tell him a heart rate monitor).
