My last doctor’s visit was a few months ago. I always worry because I get afraid that something is happening in my body that I don’t know about. I try not to concentrate on things like that because I can really work myself into a tizzy!
On my appointment a few months ago my A1c was 7.6. Being a type 2 diabetic is so hard. Some days I just want to eat any and everything that I want! In my dreams I have a nice dinner from Olive Garden, topped with a brownie and ice cream!
After that appointment I knew I had to really do something instead of just talking about it. I signed up at Summit and started just walking for 30 minutes a day. They have an indoor track which is so convenient. Texas heat is no joke! Even on days when I don’t go, I end up walking Moki, so I’m getting at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 or 4 days a week.
So back to my appointment the other day: my A1c dropped to 6.6! I am so happy about this! Fellow diabetics and supporters know how big of a deal this is. All my other tests were looking good too and I left there with a renewed sense of purpose. My anxiety is trying to stop me from going to the Summit, but I refuse to let that happen. I will be back!
