ain’t gone lie: I was a bit nervous today before my doc appointment. I have NOT been the most obedient when it comes to my wellness journey. The last 2 weeks have been quite the party 🎉. Nonetheless, I marched into my doctors office, took off my coat, shoes and almost took my bandana off to get my numbers checked.
The good news first: I have officially lost 44 lbs in a year. My A1C dropped over 3 whole points (a big deal in the diabetic world) to 7.1. My PCP decreased the dosage on one of my diabetic meds.
The not so good news: My BP was high. I HAVE to ramp up my med compliance and tweak my diet a bit…..and drink more water 🚰!
When I look back over the past year or so, I am proud of my progress. Yes, I’ve made mistakes but they don’t outweigh the victories. I know what I need to do; I just have to do it. If I can do this well half assing it, imagine how much progress I can make being at least 90% compliant 🤦🏾♀️😂!
So, my wellness journey continues. I am still a work in progress. Grace and Mercy are my companions, and I’m glad about it😇
