WooHoo Casandra!

Ugh-I am so tired of the rain, my fingers turned prune-y just looking out of the window. We just got an inch of rain in about 20 minutes. Time to build an Ark.

Going to work a little later today, so I thought I would check in with everyone. Hope you have a great day.

Cool

Hi, all. It's warm today. Just got back from the doctor. My A1c was 5.5! Whoohoo! However, my weight is going up so I have to do something about that. My sleep is so poor that I don't feel like exercising and eating right.
Rosey - so sorry about the asthma attack. I hope you feel better.
Jeanne - I can't tolerate the generic metformin so I import Glucophage from Canada. (My insurance won't pay for the brand name.) I hope your A1c is an improvement.

Hi everyone! I am new here and was just diagnosed with diabetes less than a month ago. I'm still getting used to following the exchange meal plan that my doctor put me on although I guess it's working because my blood sugar is usually around 90-120 when I test it now and I've lost 16 lbs.

How often do you usually test your blood sugar? I've gotten into the habit of doing it several times each day. I have a doctor's appt coming up next weekend so I will follow up with him on what he thinks I should do, but I'm just wondering what's normal for everyone else.

Great HA1C, Rosetta. Rosey, I know how scary attacks can be - used to have asthma. Peony, the rain WILL stop - eventually! Jeanne, I didn't know it ever turned dry and brown on the Wet Coast nut now I see you are in East WA.

Maple Leaf, and great work on the weightloss. I test just first thing in the a.m. and seldom test any other time except if I have a very low FBGL and want to see if it's gone back up after breakfast.

Today is a Baking Marathon Day as we have a sale at my Church tomorrow morning. I WILL BE STRONG and not have even a single chocolate chip as I know a little taste can head me toward Sugar Binge Town! A big glass of water while I bake is most helpful.

Have a healthy Friday.

Nice day here at least. My FBGL was 75 today, I'm amaze. My baby has been sick and he has been home with me for the last three days...I think I just focus on him and if there's some room on myself, at least I've been behaving.

Ruth, enjoy your bake sale.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Basically, I'm still MIA . . .

The two weeks in Ontario where extremely hectic and stressful. I probably should not have gone -- but, we don't always get to make the 'best for us' choices when family matters intervene.

The trip certainly did nothing to ease my ongoing medical situation which was finally diagnosed as Pneumonia. Since returning, I've had two rounds of two different antibiotics and still no relief in sight. I'm getting weaker and more pain ridden as each day goes by. Afraid I don't spend much time sitting upright let alone on the computer.

Back to the doctor on Tuesday, the 19th and will see what he thinks he'll try next. Personally, I think this must be a viral rather than a bacterial pneumonia so there may not be much to do for it except wait it out and keep the

Amazingly enough, the BGL has been doing fairly well, all things considered.

Hope to check in again soon.

Quick post before I pack up my car with the bake sale stuff. I managed to bake all day and did not taste even one little bit! My BGL is great this a.m. and I even dropped another pound. The further I get from that darned 200 wall, the better I feel.

Now to survive the sale. Luckily I will be selling the plants and that is far from the bake table. My own stuff won't tempt me but i must stay far away from Kay Dean's famous butter tarts! Pray for me!

Happy Saturday.
