Well, a little update since I was here last. On 12/17/12 I had Gastric bypass surgery and when I left the hospital I was no longer on Diabetic meds. I have been checking my sugar once a day when I first wake up and it has been between 88-109.
Things are going well and I am starting to get a little use to my new stomach. I am currently on a puree/soft diet and could recently have a soft scrambled egg. Yum!
I am off work until Jan 28th.

Eight Great Months!
One frigid January morning my doctor gave me the diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. I was in shock. Then I was asked to make two important decisions:
1. Do I want to test y glucose on my own each morning, or come in to the doctorís office and have the nurse test it?
2. Do I want to change my dies and my lifestyle, or start taking medication immediately?
I decided learn how to give myself the glucose checks. I also decided to change my all ready healthy diet and lifestyle. This is when I turned to SparkPeople. The Food and Fitness trackers are very detailed, and the apps for my phone make it convenient for me to be accurate. By tracking everything that I eat, I am much more mindful of the food that I consume.
Next, I added running 2-3 days a week to my weekend hiking trips. During the first four months, I also visited Evolution Chiropractic and massage for a weekly adjustment and half hour massage. My sore and tired muscles were in shock from the extra workouts. I had to take care of myself with these changes.
I received a lot of advice and support from Dr. Guthrie and from Celeste Kidder, my nutritionist (Concord Hospital). Most importantly, my husband John started reading labels as meticulously as I do. He never complained with the low carb, low sugar diet that I put us on.
Itís working! I lost 25 pounds and have kept it off. I had to buy a new size 4 wardrobe instead of size 10. My glucose levels are under control, and my total cholesterol level went from 205 to 124. The hardest part of these past eight months was deciding to take control of my health.

I finished the 8 weeks some time ago but really didn't notice this tread till now - not sure why.

At any rate am doing ok.

Have joined Spark Coach and am on Day 3 and am looking forward to getting back to where I should be - taking it one day at a time.

Goal at this time is
10 minutes treadmll / 1.5 mph /0 incline = do this for 14 days then increase time to 15 minutes and increase incline to 1%

Today I have reached 220 days no pop no chocolate - so I no I can obtain the other goals one step at a time

I was off this weekend with my husband. We got out for a nice drive Sunday morning then got home and hibernated indoors under the air conditioner. Saturday morning when we got off from work we were too tired to do anything but go home and sleep. Work really takes the energy out of us. emoticon emoticon

124. Plus it seems since I changed my diabetic meds I am losing weight a little faster.
With the other meds I seemed to have been at a standstill where losing weight was concerned. It seemed that no matter how much exercise I did it wasn't going anywhere.

111 on 6/24. Yep, looks like it is back on track. In a few weeks I will get another blood test to check the A1c. i will also be getting referral to get the colonoscopy that my doctor wants me to get. Yuck! But, I have recently found out from a relative that there is some history of colon cancer in my family-so, I need to get checked out. It is just the thought of drinking all that yucky stuff beforehand. emoticon emoticon emoticon

The meds he put me on before (Actos and Januvia) did not work. I got tired of him dragging his legs on the med change and last friday I put myself on glypizide and Januvia. Kept the 50 mg Januvia and added back the 10mg Glypizide. I went to my doctor yesterday and he said OK and agreed with my choice. Made out my med scripts for the pharmacy and a script to get my bloodwork done again in 6 weeks to check out to see how it is doing.Hope all goes well.
So, far it has been helping.

The doctor added back the Actos with the Januvia and hopefully it will get better. I hardly eat as it is.

JOS4EVER I too have trouble timing my meals when I'm at work. I'm an in-home caregiver for 3 guys that have developmental disabilities and caring for their needs doesn't always allow me to stop and eat at the "right" times. On the other hand, my journey has improved one of the guys'
diets that also has pre-D and other similar health issues as I do. emoticon

Went to Dr. after completing challenge. She was happy with my weight loss and my triglycerides are down. My A1c actually went up a little from 6.2 to 6.3. Since the challenge I continue to eat the right kinds of food. I'm having some trouble with work and timing my meals-I'm going too long without eating and overcompensate when I get home. I also haven't gone to the gym and worked out since I completed the challenge. I've been very sick lately. When I get better I'll start exercising again. I'm still on diabetes and cholesterol meds.

Got my test results back from Monday's doctor visit. My A1C is down 6.3 to 6.0. My Thyroid is almost normal again and I've lost 16lbs since the previous blood draw! Dr. was very happy and I think a little surprised that the numbers improved so soon.

I am continuing to track my nutrition and my exercise. I have always lost weight slowly and I still am, but that's OK. This new way of eating and tracking what I eat and definitely the exercise has become a way of life for me now. I actually look forward to either riding my stationary bike or do some of my Coach Nicole workouts. I have severe back issues including two ruptured discs, so I have to be careful when I do exercise and that's why I think I plateau every so often because I can't change up my exercise routine that much. My A1c is down, my cholesterol is down and I'm totally off my blood pressure medicine and the prescription anti-inflammatory pills. It's amazing what my new way of life has done for my overall health.
Thanks SparkPeople and my SparkFriends!

I'm tracking my food, walking 30 minutes after every meal on the treadmill and 20 more minutes of other exercises, yet this week I'm disappointed because I didn't lose at all. On the positive side, I have made a lot of progress.

Well truth is I started losing weight. I started to exercise. My roommate didnt help at all. We were suppose to do this together. Be each other support. As u can't tell i caved in. I lost like 5 pounds and was really starting to feel better. Then I said yes to one thing and then a nother and now I feel like sh.. :( I am so afraid to fail again. I know I need to get back to what I was doing. Not only form me but my granddaughter. I still haven't figured out this site and truth be told I cant afford thespark book such is ok. I get the reciepes of the site. I was in a veterans mood and my knee didn't kill me as bad. I need support! I don't get it at all at home and that really hurts. My best friend. Well I am just going to have to try again on my own. Wish me luck!!!

Well my doctor had taken me off Actos and glypizide and put me on Januvia- didn't work that great,then they added Actos back on with the Januvia-that is not working well.
Working my buns off on the exercycle and strength.
Will go to my doctor on Monday morning and see what he says about the meds again.

I will be glad when I am back on track with the meds again-as I hardly eat as it is. Try to get my proteins in and vegetables. I still take my vitamins and vitamin D.

It's only 10:30, and I've done a video and walked 30 min. We went out for breakfast--and walked to the restaurant. I made good choices and felt really good about the walk.

Well, I have been on Januvia since April 5th and so far it is doing good at work with my mornings.

On April 23rd I have an 8am and 9am appointments for Education and Consultation on the Lap Band program. My big concern is what the out of pocket expenses will be after the insurance pays their part.
I am quite sure that I would be able to put it on my taxes as well-every bit helps.

I know that if I go for it- two weeks before and two weeks after the surgery I will be on a full liquid diet. And then a special diet as then the stomach will only be 20-30cc in size.

THIS has been a great month for me. I finally broke a plateau of over a year almost a year and a half. I was able to concentrate on my healthy goals instead of the weight issue. My wonderful Spark Friends cheered me when i needed motivation and I cheer them when they need it.
I am down 40 pounds with spark and 50 pounds since this journey began almost three years ago. On March 1st I blogged this journey and today it is a "popular blog". I have had 350 messages today I am happy but tired. I did walk 2 miles and I always try to stay with my diabetes tracker. I test and post FBS every day. It is that important to me.
I won a spark certificate yesterday and bought another pedometer at the Spark store they sell my favorite OMRON pedometer.
YES this has been a great time for me. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!
