Just got great news!!!! I am a type 2 diabetic nand in 2016-2017 & 2018 my blood pressure was 142/80 & my A1C (which measures blood sugar for the past three months) was 6.6 and the doctor put me on #metformin … today my blood pressure is 117/78 & my A1C is 5.4 . The doctor excitedly said “OHMYGOD what did you do? You’re not even prediabetic!” I know these numbers are because I have been off #sugar since March 2018. When my son Jeffrey asked “Mommy if you die who’s going to be my bodyguard” I knew I had to make lifestyle changes or I would die. I wanted to share this good news with you to say THANKYOU to each person who texted, posted and dm’d me encouragement throughout my road back to health. I feel so good right now I could scream. Just want to encourage you that this can be done. You have people who love you and need you to be here. Live for you! Live for them! #thankyoujesus #joy #workinghard #sugarfree #sugarfreelife #sherrishepherd #feelsgoodtofeelgood #takingcontrolofmyhealth #nomoremetformin #healthiswealth #kickingdiabetesass
