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.
move onward, my friend, onward.
This is super awesome gf. I can’t wait to see more of the journey. 🙂
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!)
Knowledge is power!
