6.1...and that's a magic number!!

6.1 That's what my endo told me this afternoon. My last A1c was 7.5 in January. What a difference, huh? I can't believe it. I think that's the lowest since being diagnosed.

And she also wanted to know how I lost eleven pounds. I like how my legs aren't as beefy...they actually have shape and firmness to them.

I've finished the official workout class but have been continuing the last two weeks on my own...and feeling good. I don't like to miss a day now. It's a bit harder with the kids home for summer break but I can still make it to the gym.

My diet has been pretty regular. I eat the same Go Lean and strawberries for breakfast every day, either tuna, turkey or egg salad for lunch with carrots and lo-carb yogurt, and dinner is still fish/bread/veggie or chicken on greens with a bit of feta and lite dressing. (Although I have been in diabetic purgatory since going to the lab last week and have since had a bagel, Doritos and cheesecake - YUM!). But I'm back on schedule today. You gotta splurge once in a while and I did usually once a week.

I'm having a good day!
