I know some of you may be wondering if I was going to update on my health since I started writing about my health back in January.
A lot has gone on since then….with my life….and the site having issues; so I haven’t kept you all up to date.
Since I had my three month check up Monday, I thought I would share an update here with you all.
My weight hasn’t really changed much since my last update. Honestly, my weight is near my starting weight (I’ll explain that later).
However, I do have good news to share….my a1c is now 6.2(which is an average of 131)! When I had it checked back in January it was 8.3%, so a 6.2 is amazing! My nutritionist says 6.2 is about where I should keep it, but I personally would love to at least get it to a 5.9%.
A1c is an average of your blood sugars over a 2-3 month span. I haven’t had anything in the 6% range for a long time.
When my blood sugars were at their worse was back in 2015; I found myself with an a1c of 11.8%. When I tried low carb the first time around in 2016 or 2017 I got my a1c down to the 7’s. I could never stick to the diet though, and my a1c went back up into the 8 % range. I haven’t had my a1c get down to under 7 since I got them under control back in 2012 or so.
Anyways, I was surprised my a1c was as low as it was because the last month I haven’t been doing the low carb diet as often as I should. That’s why my weight is up again….carbs make me hold onto water weight so bad.
Do any of you have that same problem?
I’ll try to update more often….if anybody is interested. Thank you for your time 🙂
