Diabetes meds – less and less

Another evolving non-scale victory: I have not had to take my diabetes pills (metformin) for 3 weeks. (I take it based on my fasting blood sugar.) I’ve had to take a few doses of my nighttime insulin during that time, but I’m pleased so far.

Leather Pants!

I’ve never owned a pair of leather pants because I could never find a pair big enough for me. Today Rio was cleaning out some piles of donations, and came across a pair that looked like it might fit me, so I tried it on just for fun. It fit! I expect (hope!) they won’t fit in a while, but for now it’s pretty cool!


I walked about 1/2 mile today, and climbed 2 flights of steps. This may not seem like a lot, but for someone who, until this year, had to get on a mobility scooter to even walk into a store, this is amazing. Oh, and never got out of breath. I guess I need to walk faster next time!

Staying the Course

No posts in a while because it feels like my journey is just going along. I’m just inching along weight-wise, but every day my back is a little better and I can do a little more. Trying to be patient…

Sometimes it’s the little things…

I just went to have blood work, and in our lab there’s this little padded shelf that swings down in front of you that you place your arm on to make it easier for the phlebotomist. In the past, that little shelf hit my belly, and it was really horrible. Today I had several inches between my belly and a little shelf. Another NSV!
