It's official! On October 18th, 2010, I weighed 189lbs. Today, January 18th, 2011...I weigh 175lbs! Doctor's scale confirmed. I am so thrilled! The doctor was very pleased and asked me how I was doing it. I really gushed about SparkPeople. He told me to keep it up because it was working.
He cut back on my insulin too! He did refrain from changing my insulin type. He explained that we should wait until I'm closer to my weight goal. The change in insulin could cause me to gain some weght until the dosage is settled. I said that at a lower weight I could handle adding and then dumping a five pounds and that right now adding back any weight would not be good.
My A1c has dropped from 6.2 to (drum roll) 5.3! Part of the drop is all of the lows I've been experiencing. The lows are a direct result of dropping wieght and exercising. Doctor suggested that I keep exercising and talking to my dietician.
I am thrilled! I dumped 15 lbs over Thanksgiving AND Christmas! I'm looking forward to just how I do over the next three months. Thank you everyone and most of all...THANKS SPARK!!
