Smile A Happy Day.....

I am beaming very happily today...... . Last November, after a couple of blood sugar tests, my Doctor tried to diagnose me as diabetic. . I did a lot of research, and got a second opinion, and was diagnosed by a specialist as having impaired glucose tolerance (pre-diabetes).......he advised me that if I lost some weight, I could reverse the condition...... .

My doctor never accepted the specialist's view, and so we agreed to disagree.....

Today, I got the results of a recent blood sugar test.....and I have been declared 'normal' ....well, only in as far as the blood sugar, of course.....

So now I am really happily, and totally totally motivated

And I am restraining myself from going back to the Doctor with a very very very smug 'I-told-you-so' look on my face.....
