Quick Update

Endo visit this morning.


Weight - down another 9 pounds... Holy crap. I'm disappearing. Not really. But I'm within 6 pounds... (6 pounds!) of the weight I felt the best at in my down and dirty days!

A1C - Up a little. Not surpising. Though disappointing. I'm at 6.5% which is still decent - but up. Not surprising because I've been a half wit about logging. I test, I just don't log and when I don't log, it's easy to ignore the high blood sugars... Also, I've cut out lows almost entirely. So this is not terrible news, but I want it lower.

Cholesterol - Up. By quite a bit. I think I'm case in point for the new Zetia study that's out. It's just not working. So, we're going to try a very low dose statin to see if I tolerate it. Blah.

Thyroid numbers look OK, but not great.

All in all, not a bad visit. And I must say. I LOVE my endo. He's laid back enough that I don't feel scolded when I leave his office, but I wish he were just slightly more of a hard ass. I feel like I got away with something...

More later on blogabetes. See you around!

Six Words... Only Six??

Thanks to Kerri - as always...

The challenge: write a six word memoir.

The(ir) ma(th)(p) of (ho)me is compl(icated)(ex).

Here are the rules:

Write your own six word memoir;
Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like;
Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere;
Tag at least five more blogs with links; and
Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

OK, I think most have been tagged, but I'll draft Kassie, George, Sandra, Autumn, and Paige.

Debates - J for Jailbait

You know the internal debates we have? Eat that. Don't Eat that. Exercise. Don't Exercise.

That food is jailbait. No it's not. Ask it for Carb ID before you eat it. No need to do that... Just make a SWAG.

That's what today's post at Blogabetes is about... Please check it out.

A few weeks ago, I attended a play at the Theater where I work with Julia, Kerri, and Shannon. It was a great day. And an excellent play. I've been meaning to write about it for awhile.

Please check out Blogabetes for a start. More to come - probably here...
