Still no weight loss, but...

Monday, May 06, 2013

So I am STILL at 228... But, I got home from the doctors today with some relatively good news. My A1c (long term blood sugar) is down 5 points. In January it was a little over 13. Today (well, the blood tests were last Wednesday, but yeah...) it was 8.5. Normal is between 6 and 7. So yeah. AND my bad cholesterol (whichever that one is) is down by 30 points. And I wasn't even really working on that. By daily blood sugar tests are still way out of whack, so we adjusted my insulin, but didn't add any oral meds back in to the mix (woo hoo!). So I am still upset about the no pounds lost, but there is a little light, anyway... emoticon

Great news on the blood sugar and the cholesterol!

I know the diabetes makes the weight loss more of a challenge but I think you'll see the number on the scale move soon. You already have proof that you work is paying off!
