I went to see my doctor a few days ago, and today the results of the last blood work came by email. My A1C is 6.0, woohoo! When I was first diagnosed a couple of years ago, it was 6.5, and although 6.0 might seem as just another nuance, it means a lot to me. It’s going down, slowly but surely, yay!!. I am now officially in the pre-diabetes stage.
In the future, my A1C might get even lower than that, however I don’t think I’ll ever snap out of it completely. I am currently not on any diabetes medication and hope it’ll last this way forever. I am not a big fan of taking meds.
In between these numbers, I was physically active but didn’t exercise per se. Basically did what I had to do around the household but exercising was always on my to-do list, and still is. Other than that, I watched my diet and took it easy with carbs although didn’t avoid them altogether.
Anyway, it worked. Woohoo! Doing a happy dance
