On 19th March, a routine visit to the surgery gave me a fright – a standard test indicated Type 2 diabetes. I’m waiting for the diagnosis to be confirmed, but I decided that I would take control, and act as though it has been.
So I upped my exercise levels (I had made a vague stab at starting running a couple of weeks before), and started eating a more healthy diet.
Since 19th I have lost 1.5 kgs. Since 23rd, when I started tracking it via Runkeeper.com, I have walked, cycled and swum 35.7 miles. I feel better than I have for years, and have dropped a dress size.
I am dead chuffed with myself!
I’m going to do one of these postings at the end of every month, just for my own records.
