Life's a Happy Song

I love you, O LORD, my strength.  - Psalm 18:1
I got a bit of good news from the doctor's office!  Because I've been having frequent "lows", I'm officially discontinuing my insulin pen!  I still have to take the oral medications Metformin and Glipizide, but no more shots - and I'm thrilled!  Thank you, Lord!

This month I've lost 8 pounds!  It's not the double-digit number I was hoping for, but you know, when you weigh at the doctor's office you have to wear clothes and shoes and...  well - you know!  My scales weigh at least 3 pounds lighter at home.  I don't wear shoes when I weigh at home!

God has been by my side through all of this, and I know He will continue to help me down this path to wellness.  I have to go back to the doctor next week for a regular "chronic disease" follow-up visit, so I really want to concentrate on getting at least another 2 pounds off, and I would like to see my A1c close to 5.  The last time it was checked, it was 6.6 and I think with the weight loss and the change in medication, I stand a chance for success.

Faith is building on what you know is here so that you can reach what you know is there.  - Cullen Hightower

If you read this blog and have been praying for me, just keep it up - I need all the prayers I can get!  I told my doctor, "I may not reach my ultimate goal, but if I don't, I will die trying!"  She must have been a cheerleader in high school, because when I'm talking like that, I can almost see her standing there with her pom poms waving!  She's really too cute to be a geeky doc!  

Losing's a great motivator.  -Yogi Berra

This is one time I'm very happy to be a "loser", believe me!

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.  - John 15:7

Life's a Happy Song!  Enjoy this entertaining song and dance!

Today is HOUSEWIFE'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!  I'm not sure if there are many left, but today we honor the time-honored profession of Domestic Engineer!  My mom was a housewife and referred to herself as a Domestic Goddess.  A very humble woman, my mother.
