Today is the last day of May. And I have lost 12 pounds in a month! I have brought my BSL average from over 200 down to 127!!!! That makes me so excited!
Tomorrow, I will pull out the tape measure and do some measuring and see if I can see more changes. I think I may have seen more significant change if I would have measured when I started. But I do notice there is less jiggle in my wiggle lol.

I am on a mission. To shock my doctor by shocking myself. I am excited to show that doctor that I did it! No, I didn't lose 100 lbs, but I did lose quite a bit and more importantly got my BSL average down down down!!!!! Maybe I am getting my hopes up to have him not react, but I think I will at minimum get a look on his face that will make him think the results might be incorrect. Acknowledgement of anything would be a win in my book! I am doing it for me and my family, but shocking the man who holds my prescriptions on record is important to me too.

Things to do this weekend... Work out, eat right, make camping lists, go through summer clothes for kids and myself. I am torn about how I feel about going through those summer clothes. For years I have worn long pants or capris' to cover my legs. I think I will see if I can get more shorts on. Maybe even wear a skirt or dress to my son's graduation. It is a hot day here already so staying inside is the plan for me today at least. I don't do well in the heat. And I prefer to stay feeling good.

Gosh I am so excited to get away from here and just go camping. Just to have the kids during the summer is great to me. I know next year will be so completely different than it has been the past 19 years+. I am going to make sure I enjoy every moment, big or small. Especially now that I am feeling great!

I am so happy I am alive. I think back to several years ago, to those days I wouldn't or couldn't wake. Every time I closed my eyes I was sure I wouldn't wake up to my kids. I was at peace with the Lord taking me because I was just out of fight. My mom and granma always said us women are too stubborn to die, let alone die young. I guess they were right and I am grateful for that trait in me. Stubborn and a fighter! I am so happy I have fought through so much and am still here to live each day!

    Shocking your doctor has to one of the BEST NSV's (non-scale victories) ever!

    As a reminder, if you're on medication for either blood sugar OR blood pressure make sure that you monitor both carefully. Without a lot of carbage in your system your body reverts back to normal levels pretty quickly and the medication can send you dangerously low.

    Keep up the great work!
