Something I've found that helps the A1C--alpha lipoic acid capsules. I started taking them in January and 20 days later had a regular blood work up and my A1C went from 6.4 (.1 away from being diabetic) to 6.0. I take 200 mg with my morning meds on an empty stomach and didn't make any other changes. you might want to check it out..... 1 day ago
WOO HOO!! One of my friends (who was a friend before my sparkpeople days) actually made a comment the other day that lets me know that my new healthier lifestyle is influencing her personal health decisions!!! I have hoped for this, that friends and family would be inspired by the changes they see in me!!! I believe that our health is the most important determinant (at least that is in our control) in our happiness as we age and mental, physical, and spiritual health are equally important, in my eyes...for each aspect affects the others....... 1254 days ago
for responding to my question about healthy breakfast ideas. I do know I should eat a healthy snack in between breakfast and lunch. However, I have a very active job working as a surgical nurse and I rarely if ever even get to use the restroom much less be able to eat a snack. And we are not supposed to bring any food back to the surgical suites with us for our and patients safety.
I was going to give you a goodie but you don't have your page setup to give you one! Thanks again!!! 1400 days ago
You know who taught me to greet newcomers? Sparkers like MINDBODYANDGOAL, KIMI_SILVA, THEREALWITCHYG and GETSTRONGRRR
Some of them have come and gone from Spark. But I never took it personally. I just took the "light and love" and passed it on...to you.
