It has been a while since I updated so here it is. I am just over 4 months post surgery and am down 60 pounds. I am fully recovered, walk for 30 minutes and workout 30 minutes each day. I try to eat 2/3 cup of food 6 times per day. My type 1 insulin dependent diabetes is under control, with my daily blood glucose in the single digits. My hemoglobin A1C, is just above 7 and I have cut my insulin dosages by nearly 70%. Overall, I am much healthier, happier and am noticing the physical changes my body is going through.
I am 51 lbs from my 2nd weight loss goal and 81 lbs from my final goal. I have set my date for the final goal, April 2016. With determination and sheer will power, I will reach my final goal. I am now looking at a future that will Include turning 70. I feared dying before I was 50, and without having had the surgery, changing my lifestyle, I was headed to certain death before I turned 50.
Even though it is raining, it is time for my walk. Until next time, I hope each of you will make just one small change in your lifestyle so that you become just that more healthy.
