The big numbers: Long term blood sugars measured by HbA1c, was 7.6, this time, 6.3 ... Normal is < 6.5

Blood pressure, 123/75, normal.


Alas, per my testing scale, my bodyfat% is disgustingly high, and I DID have it trending down before I went on the program to change all this around.

So. Healthier but fatter. And all I need to do is some exercise to help deal with that, right?
My doctor had a new diet plan based on logging everything you eat and tracking the nutrients, which seems to me to be a great idea ... so great that I've done it several times before, and ... it works, but I have to remind myself to keep with it. Every time it failed in the past was because for some reason I stopped logging, and stopped PLANNING.

I also got a referral to a new endocrinologist. The old one I was going to was useless, refused to address anything at all until the diabetes was fixed, and I didn't need to spend $50 per visit to have him tell me the same thing my regular doctor could.
