I am writing this and not going to stay up late tonight. Had a great time today at the pool. I am getting stronger and more flexible. I am continuing to have great blood sugar readings without taking insulin. Talked to an insurance company "health coach" this morning. She was BLOWN away by my progress and my story. She told me she knows of Sparkpeople.com and it is a great resource. I was pretty sure that the call would not provide me with much NEW information because I have been working on this process for longer than the young woman has been alive - but talking to her guarantees a lower insurance premium for me. She mentioned that my lab work was all great - in fact AWESOME - but my waist measurement still puts me at risk. I pointed out that I have a LONG way to go to get to a 30 inch waist but that I am really quite content with my progress. She then told me that she could see that I am doing well, but that MANY people don't know nearly as much about their lab work or the risks they face so she is there to help. She thanked me for my time and I felt that it was worth doing even if only to help my pocketbook.
My drive home was pretty uneventful - only 2 deer and they weren't behaving strangely. I did notice the large number of lightening bugs though and when I got home was serenaded by a whippoorwill - calling out to tell me to WHIP POOR WILL. LOL
I hope everyone gets a great night's sleep and awakes ready to face the day ahead. I wasn't sure I would get to the pool tomorrow but Ed said he thought maybe he would go with me after we run our errands in the morning. SO . . . don't be surprised if I don't get on for long or get to everyone's messages. I will play catch up on the 4th because the POOL IS CLOSED - LOL
Sleep well and rest quietly confident in the arms of love.
