Tomorrow will be the first time I have seen my doctor since I started on my "journey". I must admit I am a little nervous about the scale. I haven't fully utilized the program as I should have (no exercise or workout due to my knee problems) so I guess I will just have to "wait and see". I have made a few slips along the way and I know that I need to change my attitude toward food especially in terms of "treats". I have and have had for such a long time a terrible sweet tooth. I should know better given my family history. My mom's doctor (many years ago) thought she might have had a stroke because she was on diabetic meds at the time rather than insulin. She is currently in a nursing home and her sugars are doing well she tells me. Also, I had an aunt that died from the complications of diabetes but before she died she was blind. I remember her just like it was yesterday saying to me "Oh if only I could see". So at least I still have my sight and my sugars are in good control. But the weight issue continues to "hang" over my head. "Tune in tomorrow" for the latest of my news.
