Anyhow, I really don't have anything to be blue about. When I found out I was diabetic, there were some blue things that I decided to use to stay healthy!
First of all are these test strips in a blue box. Every morning when I wake up, I use these to test my blood sugar. I prick my finger and put a drop of blood on one end, and with the other end in the glucose monitor, my blood sugar level gets measured.
Then I use this blue cup to take my medicines to keep me healthy.
At least 3-4 times per week, I go walking. I'm supposed to do this 6 times per week, but it's hard when I work so late! I don't like to walk after dark. Here are the bottoms of my shoes which have turned blue...
...from walking on this blue track! Look at that blue sky too!
Well it must all be working, because here are my skinny blue jeans! I bought these about 4 years ago after I lost weight following a gall bladder attack. I put 10 of those pounds back on, and put these jeans back in the closet. Guess what, I'm wearing them again! Woohoo! When I wore them a few years ago, they were kind of tight. They gave my girl parts a wedgie.
No more wedgie though! I weigh even less than I did back then! When I went to visit the diabetes educator last week, I was so pleased to see that in 3 weeks, I had lost over 7 pounds! I had lost a few pounds even before that when I found out that my sugar was too high, so this makes a total of about 10-12 pounds all together! My weight hasn't been this low in probaby 15 years! My numbers were great too! My diabetes educator was so pleased!
My highest weight ever was 31 pounds more than I am now. That translates to two sizes bigger than these jeans are. I've been a big woman for most of my adult life and I have been comfortable in my size, and I never really tried to lose weight as long as I was healthy. Well, this diagnosis changed all that. I am on a mission to put this disease into remission!
I'm not feeling blue here!
