So in the span of my doctor's visit, maybe 15 minutes actually with my endocrinologist, I think he hugged me about six times. lol He kept saying: I'm so proud of you! I'm SO proud of you! You look so BEAUTIFUL!! Oh, gush, gush, gush. I soaked up the affirmation like a sponge, of course! My C1A is down to 5.4 from 7.2. The BIG news, since I'm insulin resistant, is that my insulin level is down from something insanely high (I so wish I'd gotten the actual starting number, but I didn't) like 76 to 34 now. Normal is 17, I think. As with my weight, I still have a way to go. I am, however, on my way!! The doctor kept flipping back in my chart and remarking on my improvements and at one point he set the chart down and threw both arms open wide and said BIG hug, BIG HUG! lol With a cheerleader like that, how can I go wrong?! I am SO blessed. As an aside, the scale is NOT moving, not budging one tiny OUNCE! I'm hopeful it will soon.
My baby entered junior high this morning. Yikes!! It's hard to believe time has gone by this quickly. I was going to show you a photo of her on this momentous day, but my camera is still in the van, so I'll have to get that to you tomorrow.
Thank you for being here for me, for cheering on my progress, for dragging my butt up when it flounders. I appreciate you, my precious SparkFamily, so much!!
