A1c - 7.7 no change in 3 months!

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

had my doctor visit this morning and was expecting my A1C to be lower based on my daily blood sugars, exercise and watching carbs. It was not -it was the same as 3 months ago as well as not having lost any weight. Very frustrating! So after the appointment I went to Panera and had a cinnamon crunch bagel, then went home and felt sorry for myself for the next 4 hours.
But then, I forced myself up and started a walking dvd telling myself I would do a mile and see how and felt, then another mile and another until i completed the whold 3 mile dvd! This is success for me - not following disappointment and one bad decision with many more bad decisions. So I will keep trying, keep exercising and watch my carbs and calories even closer!

  Try looking up information about exercise and cortisol. I don't want to lead you astray,but I seem to remember that it is better for an insulin resistant person to have lower impact workouts as apposed to intense,stress inducing ones.Working out consistently reduces stress,but for some to go slower,longer is more beneficial.Doctor might know,or this website.......I battle too as I have a serious stress illness.Take good care,maybe someone else knows more. emoticon

    Try taking cinnamon capsules or chromium picannte. Hubby is a diabetic and our endros recommend it as it does lower your sugars and A1C

also when you can sprinkle cinnamon on foods like apples and bananas.
