Just reached SparkPeople Level 9!
Changed my Tracker to Weeks on Maintenance Weight!
Reached my Maintenance Weight several months ago, and have only minor fluctuations of 3 - 5 pounds, all within my target!
Thanks to President Obama for the Affordable Care Act that helps relieve the financial burden of Type 1 Diabetes and an increasingly Geriatric body.
Recent checkups with my Primary Care Doctor and Opthalmologist gave me a clean bill of health with NO Diabetes complications after 41 years brittle Type 1! Saw my Specialist for Sleep Disorders and, after an extensive Sleep Study, now have a new, replacement Respironics CPAP machine. Saw my Respiratory Medicine Doctor and have a new Nebulizer. Finally, my Medtronic Paradigm Revel Insulin Pump is working great, helping keep my still-brittle Type 1 Diabetes manageable with fewer blood sugar swings, rare hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and fewer hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) episodes. It's still a tight-rope walk, but after 41 years I have gained a good sense of balance and maintain my sense of humor.
As my 95-year-old father says,
"We're in great shape for the shape we're in!"
