Tsking Good Care of you.

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I had my 3 month checkup with my Diabetes Dr. yesterday. I was all prepared to get a lecture about how I need to take care of myself or I won't be around to take care of others. Honestly I had not been taking care of myself and not checking my Blood Sugar. The checkup before my A1C had climbed to 8.4 I was not looking forward to hear it was now 9 or 10 something. I have been working on eating lots of veggies and getting out and walking or playing with the daughter and my grandson at the park. But not checking my numbers I was waiting for some harsh news.
Imagine my surprise when she told me that even being sick for a week and a half my A1C had dropped to 7.2 and I had lost 6 pounds. Only 2 pounds a month but I will take it. I could kick myself thinking how good it could have been if I have been doing the right thing and checking my numbers.

    No, you can't kick yourself - it won't turn back time. But you've learned a few things and are able to incorporate what you've learned to keep doing better. emoticon on the weight loss.
