CatScan Results

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Wow, I've been out of the loop for quite sometime, but I'm happy to finally be back now that things have finally settled for me. I really missed being on here, and now that I know there is an app for my phone I'm a much happier camper. So, now, on to the good stuff.

I had a doctors appointment the other day to find out the results of my catscan I had done a few weeks ago. Yes, it took them almost a month to tell me what was going on, but at least now I know what's going on with my body. My doctor told me that my spleen IS slightly enlarged, but that it is the safe enlarged, leading them to believe that I just happen to be a person who has a slightly larger spleen by nature, so I am perfectly alright! I was so grateful to hear that news I almost cried.

What's even better, she is amazed by the transformation I've made in a matter of two months time. According to their scale I've lost 17.8lb's since January 9th!! Though I've lost 15 if I go by my own scale and start date at home. My sugar levels have also officially reached the safe and healthy ranges. My fasting sugars for the past two weeks now have been no higher than 116, and no lower than 100. And After eating meals my sugar is always under 145, and the doctor wants them under 150 to be considered safe. So, I've finally gotten my sugar under control, and am finally getting my lantus injections reduced. The doctor suspects I shall be off the shots very soon, and will be sticking to just the pills hopefully.

It's also finally getting easier to eat more often now, and I find myself naturally looking for healthier alternatives towards what I am eating, or what I am shopping for. And I almost cried when I went to the store and fit into clothes that were a size smaller than what I already was wearing. I feel so accomplished with everything I've done so far, it just makes me want to keep going this way for the rest of my life! For the first time in my life, I feel happy with my body and can honestly say that I love myself. I am so happy!!
