“In March 2022, my doctor told me that my blood work was showing that I was prediabetic and recommended that I sign up for a class to learn how to not become a Type 2 Diabetic. As a then 68 year old, I knew that diabetes ran in my family and that my physiological make up made me an ideal candidate to be a diabetic. I searched the web and found the Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes online class and started attending in April 2022.
When I started attending my A1C was 6.4 and my weight was 227 pounds. Through attending classes and doing what our wonderful instructor told us could help, at the end of the program, I weighed 203 pounds (and still am losing weight), got my A1C down to 5.7, and am now swimming a 1/2 mile a day. I am eating healthy and watching my sugar intake. I can honestly say that I have never felt as good as I do today and my lifestyle of a good diet, daily exercise, and taking care of myself is the best it has ever been. The classes I attended weekly and then monthly are the reason why all this has happened to me. Today, I am not only healthier than every before, but as I spend time with my three grandchildren, when I take them out for ice cream, I make sure to get the non sugar ice cream!”
