I have a hard time feeling sorry for myself. I think I did for a few weeks when I was diagnosed but I started thinking about all the positive things in my life. After 3 months, when I had lost 30lbs by cutting out Coke and Cherry Coke, limiting the amount of Pasta I inhaled (Alfredo, I miss you) and paying attention to how I live, I realized I hadn't really given anything significant up. Last month, I got my A1C back down to 6.0 from a 6.4 high last May. The Dr was happy with all my labs (cholesterol was below the normal range), and 10 months into my new twice weekly workouts with a personal trainer, I am feeling pretty good.Of course, getting some sleep now that Big Brother 8 is over (just one more podcast episode and I am done!) will help as well.So I guess the short side of my reply is focus on the positives, deal with the negatives, and move forward.
