Invisible Progress

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

I had my bloodwork done last week and saw my endocrinologist and my family doctor yesterday. My bloodwork was excellent! Both doctors were happy with the labs but were equally happy about my weight loss, which was due to a huge change in my diet, which in turn gave me good results.
I was able to bring my A1c down .80 points over the last three months. For me this is just as good as my weight loss. Both doctors stressed that if I can keep this up, I may be able to get off some of my meds. I would LOVE that!
This is progress that is invisible. You can't see what your cholesterol or triglycerides look like, but these things are just as, if not more important than physical changes like weight loss or fitting into a smaller size.
Getting older sure changes your perspective on things!
