Good afternoon.
Went and did some shopping this morning and I'm woren out. Dr's office called to say I have a bladder infection,so that's another prescription.
Its lonesome around here with the one dog gone. Have another little dog and two cats. But Angel was always under my feet. Sassy has been doing a few atrange things the last 24 hours. But she will get used to it just like us.
Be good.
Judy

Cool

Hi, all. I've been lurking but haven't been up to posting. Have been in a funk because a concert I was looking forward to for months (Charles Aznavour) was canceled at the last minute and I know I'll never see him in person again. Otherwise, nothing much going on with me. We're having our usual September weather. I don't mind it when the temperature stays around 70, but it's started to get higher and I don't feel comfortable with it. I do love the Florentine light that comes with fall. Still struggling to get back on track with my diet. Also thinking about giving up the gym. I go 3 times a week but don't see any results. Don't walk as much as I had been doing.
Rosey - sounds like your family keeps you pretty busy. I think age slows you down. I know that when I'm walking down the street and think I'm going pretty fast, everyone is rushing past me.
Glen - congratulations on finishing school. You probably need a little break before you start working.
Creations - sorry about all your health problems. Hope everything gets cleared up soon.

Hi All, I think some of you may remember me from the old threads before the new sub-forum. I didn't know it existed until today! To be honest a big reason I drifted away was the huge threads that were impossible to navigate! I'm all for a monthly or even weekly chat thread.
It has been an interesting year of mostly improving A1C results. I started Lantus in March. It's made weight-loss near-impossible, though my attitude and lacksadasical approach to exercise certainly don't help.
I am all about changing it all up! Both endo and dietician appts next week and I'm all signed up for The Biggest Loser contest here. Re-starting South Beach again - it works when I stick to it!
A1C is 5.8 currently. Fasting bgs have been below 100 if I don't snack after dinner. Unfortunately I have the urge big-time as soon as I get my toddler into bed for the night.
Lovely cool fall day here in Colorado. Hoping for some Indian Summer weather soon though - this is almost too cool.

Hi all!

Another day is here! Must force myself to exercise, as my arms won't look better in my wedding dress if I don't do anything with them. I have a new endo appointment in two weeks. It would be nice to actually sit down with a doc: I was told a 2 or 3 hour appointment. yay!

Anywho, back to the same ol' grind. Ottoette, I wish my A1C was 5.8. I haven't been below 9 since I had to go off the pump.

Gotta run!

Hugs,

J.

Hey everyone! We got in this afternoon from a week in the mountains with our daughter and son in law. Our son went along, and stayed up there with his sister and brother in law. The weather was cool, and a bit rainy. The cabin belongs to my son in law's father and is right on the side of the mountain, near Franklin, North Carolina. Beautiful area!

My glucose levels were up and down all week. Do you all think that a hot tub helps bring the levels down? I seemed to see a drop when we spent time in the hot tub, but I couldn't reason out why....

When I got home, I found out my computer monitor is messed up. Grrr. I am using my husband's computer and I don't like it!

OTTO: Welcome back! We will go with shorter threads since several folks have expressed a preference. Personally, I prefer a weekly like we use in the Sugarbusters area, but lets go with a monthly and see how it goes. It it gets long, we can go with a weekly. I look forward to getting to know you better!

ROSEY: I am glad the guys are back, but sorry they did not get their moose!

GLEN: Good luck on the job search!

JOSIAN: Definitely do some weights for your arms! Building muscle helps get the metabolic rate up too....

Off to get some stuff done!

Hey everyone! I just got out of the pool, where I was doing water aerobics like some kind of polar bear! Gosh, it was COLD! It felt good though.

ROSEY: The leaves had not started to turn yet, but they will soon. Just the layer upon layer of mountains was gorgeous. I would love to live up there! I wish my knee had not been sore from twisting it...hiking would have been lovely. We did get in a bit of walking...but no where near as much as I had been hoping to. Congrats on the good lab work! That A1C is good! I can't wait to see what mine was ...I go October 2 to get the results. I had the blood drawn last week.
