and the world is so big

it’s my 100th post and i’m happy to have saved this until now….

i’ve been plugged in to the dexcom g4 for a week and a half.

look at all of this glorious data:

i could pretend i wasn’t thrilled with the 144mg/dl average
i could say “i know i can do better”
and in fact, saying it would be really easy.

however, saying it would mean at least partially skipping out on the huge pat on the back i should be offering myself for going for the dexcom to begin with.

i did it! and even though seeing the first up, up, and away arrows is a little like stepping on a scale after a big dinner, i find myself wanting to keep going.

i had a few ideas of why my a1c was 8.5, but no evidence to back it up.

now, i know.

and knowledge is power.

  1. Glorious data indeed! You can learn a whole lot from CGM data.

    (Interesting how your average equals your upper target of 144… that’s a pretty unusual target number, not as an increment of 5 or 10! And no I’m not judging where you set them…and that average is quite lower than the A1c you mentioned, so it seems you’re doing better already! Nice work!)
