3 Month Checkup Results-- WHOO HOO!

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I began Spark in December 2016 after being diagnosed with Diabetes 2 with an A1C reading of 7.1. My doctor and I decided to hold off putting me on medication to see if I could turn it around through changing my unhealthy habits. Well, here I am, 3 months later, almost 20 pounds lighter, eating healthier and making exercise a regular habit. It has ALL paid off because today I got the results from my blood work indicating that my A1C dropped down to 6.1!!! He told me that big of a drop in just 3 months is truly amazing. Not only that but my blood pressure, cholesteral, triglycerides, etc. have all significantly improved, as well. We both almost jumped up and down with excitement. So, I now have the confidence within myself to KNOW I can keep this going....and if I can do it, YOU can do it too. Just keep on keep'n on and it will happen. Thanks to all of you who have been my support
