August 12,2008, my non-FBS (on Meter at Home) was 226. October 2008, my A1C was 8.2. I brought A1C's down to 7.1,6.4,6.8, then April 2010, it was 9, and recently 10.3!! I am a single Woman with a comfortable income, but got "screwed" over financially by a Woman. Because of what she did, I pay well over US$1,000.00 extra per Month.After ALL Bills are paid, there is no Money to buy Food. I have to resort to an Eatery where the owner lets me charge Food. I try to choose wisely, however, they don't have a lot to offer. I stay active and busy, but it's to humid to walk the Track, and no Money to join a Fitness Center. There is a free Fitness Center 31 Miles from my Home, yet I cannot afford the Gas to drive there/back 3 times per Week. Before Dinner last Night, my BS was 162! Ecstatic that I cried!! For Dinner, I ate grilled Chicken, Salad (no Dressing) and 1/2 C Cottage Cheese. Haven't checked my BS this Morning, but am keeping Fingers crossed it will be another better #. I'm praying that I too can turn it around like you and your SIL.
