Couldn't wait to share my good news with my fellow members; just got back the results from my first blood work since diagnosis in mid-Jan. A1C fell from 11 to 6--so glad! Even more good news; all my previous bad results fell almost by 1/2! Cholesterol was 225 now 122; tris were 154 now 69. Amazing what losing weight and exercise can do--why didn't it click with me before it came to this?!! Oh well, I guess it was the kick in the ass I needed!

Thank you kindly, Brunetta! Sorry for the loss of your Father; stay strong.

Thank you so much, Sally! Good and timely advice, since I know I've lost a little motivation and find myself making some bad choices--got to nip that in the bud!

Way to go Brian...I am very new to this...diagnosed May 4th, but my A1C is already down some and as soon as my granddaughter is out of school on Wednesday we will start walking everyday. Keep up good work...it's encouraging to me to see how it can change so quickly

Thanks Wendy for the encouragement! Sorry u were recently diagnosed but it does get easier, believe me! Now it's a matter of keeping motivated which is pretty hard.

Good work!!

Thanks Knorris!
