Just visited the vampire -er... i mean... doctors this past Tuesday. Got a call with the lab results today, and my latest A1C is 5.3!!!! I also found out recently that I have lost about 25 lbs since Feb! I haven't really been doing anything other than sticking to my diet, trying to move more at work, and occasionally taking evening walks. I'm excited to see what happens when I get back in the gym. The awesome A1C actually came as a surprise. The past couple of weeks I had been running a bit high (for no discernible reason... most likely stress from work). I had also been cheating an average of 3 meals per week... which when i write it like that, it doesn't sound as bad as it did in my head. Oh well, can't justify it. I know better, and don't want to fall off the wagon. I am currently at 225lbs, and would love to get down to or below 200. I guess that is my next goal. It was nice to realize I now fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear for 2 years. I also went down several belt sizes. I bought a new, smaller one back in May, and now I'm on the last hole on it too. I feel awesome. This is probably long and rambling because I am running on very little sleep, and just got back from playing lazer tag with friends and co-workers. It's off to bed for me. Good night, and best wishes to the community.
