It's nice to get a call from your doctor to give you good news. My A1C went from 8.9 to 6.0, which means six insulin shots a day to 1 or 2. My thyroid medicine dose was dropped, and now I don't have to take it every day. My family has told me they can tell my weight loss and tell them I felt just my shirts were a little looser. But after I took my first picture yesterday after two months, I was shocked to see my before and after. I have lost 44 lb in a month and a half, which has been the best choice I've ever made for my health.
