Well, as of this morning I lost the 2 pounds I gained on our trip.  Thank goodness it was only 2 pounds I felt like I did nothing but eat while we were gone.

Yesterday I saw the doctor for my diabetic check up.  My A1C had dropped from 6.7 to 6.3.  He was very happy with that and all my other blood work was perfect.  Kidney function was normal this time because I have been drinking nothing but water and a lot of it.
Dr. A. said that if my A1C continues to drop he will drop my medication from 2 x daily to once.  Then if it drops again he will cut that dose in half. 

So many benefits from weight loss.  Not just the obvious outer changes but the benefits you can't see as well.  I feel great and have more energy than I've had in 10 years.

Today I helped out in the Pre-K class.  Today was pizza day.  The kiddos got to make their own individual pizzas.  What a hoot.  I have so much fun with those little guys and I get so many hugs.
