My name is Vicki, I am 47 years old and have been a diabetic for about 6 years now.My A1C was 7.1 about a month ago. My dr. recommended that I see a diabetes educator and she really helped me this time. Yes Ive seen her before. She gave me 1800 calories a day and 249 carbs. She told me that if you watch your carbs that the calories will take care of themselves. So far so good. I have kept to my carb limit pretty well and I have lost 27 lbs in30 days
My biggest problem is once I start doing well then I start slacking off and I gain all Ive lost +some back. Im determined to get this time to work. Im hoping that if I have CK friends that you all can help me as I will do my best to help you. Also another problem is lack of exercise. I dont exercise because my knees are in very bad shape. I have had several surgeries on both knees and had a partial replacement on my left knee in January. Going for walks are out of the question. I cant even walk to do grocery shopping. I am hoping that once I get some more of this weight off, my knees will feel better. I have at least 100 pounds to lose. lets keep our fingers crossed that this time will be the winner. Blessed Be.
