I haven't been around since before the holidays, mainly because I've been really BAD and cheating on my diet so much! I've been really embarrassed
to tell you guys how I've been sneaking a bit more than a few carbs here and there. I had a really scary incident in January, which led to a lot of cardio tests (all ok) and my doc putting me on a cholesterol med called tricor (I can't take statins) in addition to my zetia. So last Friday I went in for my bloodwork, and I just got the results back today.
My A1C was 5.6 (which I wasn't expecting after being bad for 3 months) and my cholesterol, triglycerides, my entire lipid profile is almost normal! My cholesterol dropped about
50 points, but is down almost 100 points from my all time high a year ago. This is the first time my doc ever put a smiley face on my test results! I think even with my "cheating", my overall good results are from learning what foods to eat from you guys... so a big THANK YOU to all of you....
Sorry I've been gone so long ~Bear~
