No news is good news. Allegedly.
Here is the good new. I saaw my GP at the start of August, three months after starting on the low-blood sugar diet.
My HbA1c reading was: 6.3 units. The previous quarterly reading was 7.1 units. So, over a 10% improvement. My GP was very happy. I was happy, too. He was genuinely interested in what I had to done to get the blood sugar results down. NB: Anything less that 6 units is where you should be. My next aim is 5.9 units.
Now the not so good news. Over the last two months I lost focus on food intake. Ice creams in the summer become addictive. I had gained some of the weight I had lost.
Start weight: 122.4kg. Lowest weight: 118.3kg.
Today I weighed in at 119.4kg. Good to be back under 120kg again.
However… that was stagnation, not stability. I am now back on track, combining at least three hours’ worth of bike rides a week with my original low blood sugar diet (albeit with the occasional lapse). I am focussed again.
Have a progressive day, won’t you!
