I had a conference for work yesterday, and the bane of my existence was present...the pastry table.
I wasn't perfect, but I limited my consumption to a few donut holes and some of the little bitesize bagel holes.
I'm disappointed that I didn't walk away, but in the plus side, I had an appt with my primary today and she is very happy with my progress. Yes, I haven't lost a lot of weight post surgery but some other things are improving.
Blood pressure: 137/77
Heart rate: 74
The A1C is the biggest improvement. Since November, its dropped from 9.6 to 8.1 and now its sitting at 6.8.
One of the main reasons I wanted to have surgery was to help get rid of the Comorbidities that were starting to manifest: type II diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol.
If I dont lose another pound I'll be disappointed, but I'll still be happy because I'm fixing the numbers that count the most!
