Went for my follow up doctor's appointment...most of the blood work was fine EXCEPT that my fasting sugar levels are too high. 115. Dr says it should be 99 or below, and 126 is the diabetes number. I know I'm fat. I've struggled so much over these last few years, and the weight stays on. Having knee surgery didn't help my exercising, and I just found out I have strep throat. I wondered why I've felt so yucky the past two weeks. Switching off Paxil has really helped my over all disposition, and I lost five pounds in three weeks! So...once the strep is gone, it's back to the gym, and back to physical therapy. Watching what I eat even more than I was before. I'm scared. I don't want to poke myself with needles.
