No you are amazing @karen8967
I feel fab. Very healthy. Blessing in disguise my t2d.
Be my guest! So much more I could have added but I thought this was enough for one post. Even though its the 'full on chat ' thread haha.
You've made me blush debs
Thank you, what a lovely reply @ianpspurs but I would expect nothing less from you as you are so lovely. I'm a people person. Love helping, if and when I can. Yes my mum most certainly is my guiding light. My dad has a lot to do with me appreciating life too as he passed away very suddenly at 54 (I was 21 and my sister only 11) whilst on the list for a heart op. He got his appointment through in the post....way too late sadly.
I'm loving LC and it really suits me. Bs wise but also weight loss. 4 stone loss! Still have to pinch myself. I've done diets in the past and yo yo'd but this works for me. I haven't posted these pics before. The slim one is my latest. The trevi fountain one was May 2017, just 6 months before dx. The thing is I didn't feel big. I'm very tall you see and thought I carried my 14 stone 7lb quite well. This photo tells me I should have gone to specsavers. ;-)
I should be reading Jamaica Inn shouldnt I? Instead I settled down to Trisha Ashley’s Creature Comforts and ended up also flicking through the Cornwall Living magazine in the room. There is a great set of books about a Cornish artist and her success in helping her on/off friend the local DC solving crimes but I have read them all. The author is Janie Bolitho who is no longer with us. Hope you and the KC are good. Poor B and D at the cattery probably havent come out from under the rug.
@Debandez just wow re the photos. You should be rightly proud of yourself and what you have achieved. You really are our poster girl and you are so giving to help others. Round of applause doesnt quite cut it! Fabulous girl!
Well, just got back, the motorway was awful but we just took it steady. It's my friends car but I am on the insurance as she hates driving, especially long distances. At least that's done for a month or so
Scarier was my bloods. I made sure I was high enough to drive back (I was 5.8 on the way up) by eating some carbs. Set off on 8.2 but just took mybloods and I'm 3.1 It dropped that fast in 1.45 hours. I think I need to stop and check at the services in future.
This is how ive felt today
Poster girl! I wish Haha. People like you @PenguinMum are the real stars. Helping so many every day. Replying to individuals, lifting people who are down, encouraging those who need it, advising where you can and all that whilst fighting your own battles. I take my hat off to you. The PR team just keep wheeling me out! I love it if it helps our cause. We will get there but I always say it's a team effort on this forum. I've had my hands full for a few months. Special needs BIL needing lots of support. Getting there but a way to go. Tomorrow I'm in my surgery. Got my own room. Diabetes week. I will report back as always. Just going to prep my handouts. Have a good night xxx
You are a good friend, @HarrisonK . I am hoping to find someone to drive me to the little town I'm thinking about moving to. It will be a long day trip -- two hours there and two back and I'd like to spend a couple there looking around. And interstate, = motorway, only about halfway.
I have not heard of Janie Bolitho before. I will have to see if I can find her books.
Can the people at the cattery text you a pic of your girls so you can see what they're up to? I'm glad they have each other under that rug. ^. .^. .^
Day started with 6.7, which is lower than 6.9 yesterday... and well i was munching on nuts at midnight.. so it is not strictly a “fasting” number. Anyway... Wednesday... mid-week... happy Wednesday everyone...
Fbg 9.9 at 5:30 am
Not bad since I have a Cochlear Hospital appointment at 8am.
Nearly an hours drive in this torrential rain, and then on the Expressway. Would have liked to do the less busy roads, but no time to do this with this early appointment. I just hope the speeding long wagons are not there trying to make the Holyhead ferry in Anglesey. I hate them. It is so dangerous. The police used to crack down on them (I haven’t seen that recently), but quite a few have no number plates so they can’t be caught by speed cameras. They scare me.
It’s 6 am now, had my coffee. Am woken up. So dress and breakfast.
Take care in this rain x
Good morning folks, a 5.7 on the dice, hope your appointment goes well and they sort your implant out @gennepher, I've driven across to Holyhead for the ferry many times in the past, safe journey.
5.8 and an early appointment at the docs for a general review. I'm not overly worried as my health seems ok lately apart from not losing weight. There are worse things in the world so I am grateful for 'where' I am. Hope you all have a great day
I love driving, even in countries that refuse to drive on the correct side of the road I know a lot of people on the spectrum who won't/can't drive, my wife being one of them, so I value the fact that it is one of the things I love in life. Always up for a road trip
5.2 for me have a good day everyone
Hope all goes smoothly with the appointment gennepher...I remember our journeys to Holyhead (thankfully on the train) the start of our travel to Dublin...onto the ferry & as sick as a dog on the crossing.
