WARNING ... This is not a quilting post!
I jumped on the scales for my usual weigh in.
To my absolute amazement I now weigh a massive 64.4 kg or 142 pounds less than when I gave birth to my son in 2005!!
While I have not been actively dieting, my busy life, full time work and two children ensure that I am on the go most of the time.
Some of you know that I put on 40 kg in my first pregnancy and then added another 30kg in my second. I also developed Gestational Diabetes, which needed daily blood sugar readings and injections of insulin twice a day. My Gulcose Tolerance Test (GTT) had a reading of 16 mmol/l ... way over the threshold of 8 mmol/l for gestational diabetes.
I am also taking part in a 15 year study following women who were insulin dependant in pregnancy. I recently did a follow up GTT and my results were NORMAL!!!
This is fantastic and I plan on keeping my weight off and living diabetes free!
If I can be an inspiration for others to lose weight and keep healthy ... then my work here is done!
