Journey with Friends

14 Nov

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hello sweet friends. How did you do last week?  Ups or downs?  Remember life is a process. Things don’t happen overnight and changes take time.

I have great news to share. Six months ago, I had bloodwork done where my A1C came back at the time as 8.3 – not extremely high but too high in my world. Well that is where Journey with Friends started. Little changes at first – cutting back on food, making better choices, walking more. Nothing happened overnight and there were stumbling blocks, ups and downs but still I continued. Well last week I went for my six month check up and had bloodwork done again. Are you ready for this?  My A1C came back 5.9!  Yay me!!  This makes it all worth it in the long run. I’m so thankful for this change.

So I leave you this week my friends with a question.  What are you thankful for this week?  ❤️

      They really do. Trust me, it’s a hard ride with lots of valleys and mountains. It’s not a race – I shall get there in time.

    Congrats! I am thankful that DH FINALLY painted and fixed his desk which had been cluttering up things (don’t tell him I said that – shhhhh) and that I woke up this morning able to do everything I needed to do 🙂

      Yes it can and DID. It took me a long time to figure out that it’s not a race – I’ll get there and it shows.
