Today not a good day😱

 

Carbs were 64 I try to keep it under 50.

Fiber 14

And sugars were out of the park because I try and keep that under 10 today was 29 😱

 

And I have my blood test on Saturday. But overall the past 70 days I’ve taken big strides in changing my diet.

Thanks!!

According to my friend it is not good enough . 🙄

 

Well, its still higher than someone who is not diabetic but it is within pre-diabetes range that is managed with diet and exercise. Are you exercising at least 20 minutes a day? If not, try that and it you can't do 20 in one set, do 10 and then 10 later when you have more time. Walking is very good for lowering your A1C average.

 

My A1C last test was 6.1 and the time before also 6.1 (I'm on Metformin) and my doctor was very happy with that.

See I am not on any med at all for it . The exercise I get right now is just what I get with the kids but I plan tonight to watch YouTube videos and do some inside because it is too icy outside right now.

 

My friend is also diabetic and on metformin and cant get lower than 8, but she says I should be at 5 by now. 🙄

When it's icy/too cold out and I don't want to go on our treadmill, I go to the local indoor mall and do a bunch of rounds around the place to get my steps in. :)

 

I wasn't on any meds for five years but, like you was prediabetic according to my A1C numbers. He kept me off the meds until I had a reading of 7 then he did a glucose fasting test and told me I'd been doing well but it was time to stop fooling around with it and put me on the meds. I've been consistently 6.1 since (we will see in Feb when I get my next reading after Christmas *yikes*)

 

Don't listen to your friend. Only the doctor can tell you what you "should be at" without meds. I think if your A1C is down again next test or the same, he will leave you off the meds. (who knows though). If he suggests you go on them you can always ask him to wait until your next test (should be in three more months) and see if you have managed it any better before he puts you on them.

He really wants me to try myself to do it and get close to 5. And he said as long as I am below prediabetic he will let me carry on and test me every 6 months. And if I have 4 good in a row he will test me yearly.

    • Girls Will Act Like THIS When They Develop Feelings For You (Early Signs Of Affection & Attraction)
      Is she developing feelings for me? In today's video we're going to be discussing those very early initial signs she is developing feelings for you. Just as a girl starts to fall for you her actions and behaviours will begin to change when she's around you. From the types of texts she sends you to the way she is in your company.

      There is no better feelings in the world than that of falling in love with someone. Finding someone that you can share your life with is the best and it's something that everyone is searching for. Women are known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and when they fall for someone they fall deeply for them. And often experience the feeling of love before the other person does. So they normally try to keep this to themselves though because they don't like feeling vulnerable. And they want to make sure that you feel the same before they say anything.

      So because of this it can make it difficult for the men because it's hard to tell if they are developing feelings for you or not. It often means that men have to take that initial risk and announce their feelings before a lady does. So today's video I'm going to tell you what girls do when they start to develop feeling for you. Now this is going to help you understand when a lady likes you or if she doesn't. And it should help you be more confident when it comes to making that first move.

    • How to Break the Spell of Trauma Bond Relationships
      Can you be addicted to a person? If romantic relationships turn to obsession, especially after they're over, it's time to heal trauma bonds that "hook" you in to people who are selfish, manipulative, and who "blow hot and cold." In this video I respond to a letter from a man who struggles to detach from an ex who tries to keep him at arm's length, but hooked on her all the same.

Can we be happy with a minimal amount of friends, or even without friends? This video explores the benefits and downsides of friendship, the current state of friendships, and if we actually need friends.
