About a week or so ago, had my A1C done and it's 6.0! The doctor was really surprised and said he didn't really have much else to tell me to improve on, beyond trying to be better about eating 20 minutes prior to the meal. He also said that when I get pregnant, my A1C will drop a bit, so I'm actually right at the top of the range where he wouldn't worry in the least about me getting preggers.

Sweet!

That's great news. Good job!

I only have one question. How does one eat 20 minutes prior to a meal? LOL :-)
