In 2007 when I started this program I lost about 30 lbs rather quickly and as a result, I was taken off insulin. Three years later after falling off the wagon numerous times and gaining most of that weight back, I was nervous about being put back on insulin again. I have always had difficulty with my morning sugars (except for the few months that I followed SparkPeople faithfully) and my doctor discussed insulin as a way to control that. Fortunately the rest of my sugars are excellent and my A1C is also excellent, so I made a deal with the doc.
In addition to my regular morning exercise (30 min on treadmill), I will also do at least 15 minutes of any type of exercise to help bring my morning sugars back in line. It also means sticking with Sparkpeople and tracking every day. I have been pretty good over the last couple of months about tracking and brought my sugars down enough that my doctor is ok with trying this for the next 6 months.
So goal for the next 6 months: My regular AM treadmill, 15 minutes of exercise of my choice in PM and continue to track every day. And if I do fall off.... Get right back on!
