I had my semi-annual visit to the Endocrinologist last week and the following are my results:
My A1c has dropped from 8.6 to 7.5! “Wow, you’ve definitely improved” that’s what the nurse, my parents, and friends have told me. I believe them, I’ve worked so hard to get to this point. I feel like my life has really hit a high note for sure.
If someone would have told me about today when I was a senior in high school I would have believed them but I wouldn’t have known how I did it. If I would have known about my accomplishments that I have today when I was nine years old and mistreating my diabetes. With a A1c of 12.0 I had a different look at life with diabetes. I am proud to say that my A1c has been sliding downward from that point and I am almost to my goal.
I lost 5 pounds! I didn’t expect that to happen. 5 pounds in a couple of weeks. I have been thinking healthier. I’ve been exercising, eating smart, and feeling great. But 5 pounds feels really good I do have to say!
I’m addicted to this feeling healthy. I love feeling great! I don’t want to lose this. I want to keep this healthy mind set. I am making a promise to myself right now that I will take care of my body and of course my diabetes. I will work hard everyday in the hopes of preparing my body for someday having a child of my own. I want to be a happy healthy person for the rest of my life. I’ve made this choice and I plan to keep to it.
Wish Me Luck!
