I am pre-diabetes 2 and I nearly have it under control by losing weight and the meds, which when I get under 200 my doctor is going to kindly relieve me of. My last check up had me slightly elevated. He told me I could test when I felt like it or if I felt something was wrong. I've been floating in right where he wanted me since I lost 45 pounds. I am feeling great and looking forward to losing another 20 pounds (for starters) and then if I can lose a few more - I'll be at my goal and then it's pure maintenance from there, which I seem to be able to do really well.
I working on exercise. I can drop exercise so easily and yet miss it, so what's with that. I really have to get myself into the idea of exercising on a daily basis, no matter what, no excuses. Today my foot was really bothering me, but I strapped on my "combat boots" and went for my walk. Yes my foot hurt, but I made it and was happy. I just don't know why I can't seem to crave it enough to not care if I miss it. It isn't a deal like I should, its a deal like I must. My system has to have the exercise to clean out the sugar. Losing weight helps a great deal and gets me down into the okay zone, but the exercise seems to be the thing that keeps it down there - I guess the exercise is the replacement for the meds as he has told me it would, so what is my problem?
Anyway, thanks - have a great one!
