Results to be proud ? Or not?

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Sorry I didn't get my results posted earlier, but here it is. My dr, walked into my room and said Carol you should be proud of yourself I mean really. really proud. you are going in the right direction. She just had so much energy and good vibes flowing from her. Sugar A1C down from 7.5 to 7.3 cholesterol down 148 to 144 good up 53 to 54. this is in black and white and I can see progress, progress, progress. It made me feel so proud, I can stand tall and smile. I accomplished this , putting those sugars and cholesterol back in it's place where it should be. She was glad to see how much I had went down on Lantus and asked if I was having any lows , which I had. I told her I thought I wasn't adjusting my nova log right , She said if it was happen at night or early morning it was the Lantus that needed adjusted the other times the nova log. I don't have to go back until July I went from every 3 months to five. This is great. I also had a mommagram done last week it was normal. All is getting better and makes me want to push harder . Sure sometimes I get down because of slow weight lost and at those times I just need to give myself a swift kick in the butt, it is hard to reach, not because it is small , but because my legs are short lol anyway give myself that kick and look at what is in black and white. Better health was one of my main things, why I joined sp. I hope everyone is having a great day. Now if my hubby's doctors office will call be back with his results on his MRI on his shoulder , what ever it is I can deal with it . If not I know I have friends here. emoticon

    emoticon You should be very proud of the progress you make. All the hard work you are putting in is paying off, there are changes going on inside of you. The changes you see on the outside will come too. Some dats I wish I could look as good as I am feeling too. I have to keep reminding myself that good things come to those who wait, some days that is harder to do than others! Hang in there emoticon

    I know it is hard to be patient for the weight to drop. For me, I kind of like the idea of slow. I think of it more like "slow and sure". I can think of family members in the past that have lost weight quickly, but they weren't changing their habits with it. So, their weight came back easily. Also, the weight I have gained has been over the course of many years. So, I know it will take time to get it off too. You are doing great!

    Such a great piece of news! Weight loss is slow and it's hard to stay positive. It does help to blog and interact wit Spark friends.

    Good job! Don't be discouraged by slow weight loss. Slow is best. You keep it off that way. Definitely way to go on being able to wait 5 mths. before your next check up! That's wonderful. Keep track of those blood sugars to guide you (which you're doing) and that's good.

    Congratulations on your accomplishments. Proud of you !!! Keep up those NSV's and the scale victories will follow.
