I have 3 days until my 6 month blood draw. I am nervous. I have been upping my exercise and really trying to keep myself in check with the food. I had a slip up the other night. It cost me a couple high blood sugar numbers but was back in good range by the next day. Scolded myself for that and pulled myself up by the boot straps and got back on track.

I joined the 8 Week Diabetic Weight Loss Challenge again last night. I figure going through it all again would reassure some really good progress. After all I did great on it last time. It doesn't just help with weight loss but checks other things and reactivates some structure. so today is day 1 of that. It has been one year since coming back on SP. And I am proud to say I have pretty much kept the weight off and lowered my BSL to a controlled level (well as far as I know until the blood draw on Wednesday) I am really working to lower the A1c even more than last time.

I went over my records from the clinic the other day and have made note of all the things that I have been working on. I AM nervous, scared, excited, anxious....SIGHHH~~~ I have been doing better. I thought I would be farther. But I need to exercise patience. It takes time.

My feet feel swollen today. I did a fair amount of stretching and that should help. Looks like rain today too. Doing salads today! Great thoughts, great attitude, great day!
