Abby, thanks for the support, its really just one big science experiment. And one that is never exact. But that's OK, I know everyone has their "thing", whether it be choleterol, high blood pressure, bad knees, arthritis... something. For me, its diabetes. I do not stop living because of it. Ever. I just carry lots of tangerines and glucose tablets! LOL I felt sorry for myself when I first started insulin, I admit. I ate like a big ol cow to make it go emotionally away and gained like 9 pounds in 2 months last year. Then realized I did not want history to repeat (my mom died at 57 due to multiple myeloma/poor diabetes management.) I didnt want that for me, and I never looked back!

So here I am, and I keep on swimming. Good news... i dropped 1/2 pound this week and now at 144. So psyched. once I hit 141.1 my BMI will be normal, for the first time in like 20 years. Feels good.

Hope you all are doing well. Enjoy the rest of your week everybody!
