On Dec. 2, 2019, I had a Dr. appointment to talk about my diabetes issue, I was pre-diabetic with my levels getting higher. I think I was like an 8.5ish or even 9. That was the AC1 score, I mean I wasn’t surprised.

- Soda/ Pop you know like

Runs in the family
My mom and dad both developed diabetes, my grandfather was one. So it was only time that I would be one. I will be talking about this in my weight entries in the future.
Mini Stress test
We talked about a lot of things during this doctor’s visit and we talked about losing weight. Yes, I was a bit overweight. Not just a bit. But we talked about me losing the weight and I asked if my heart can handle it. So we run a small stress test. I had to take off my shirt, and I am very self-conscious about that due to being really overweight, but I did that and she found something that might be wrong, so I need to go have a regular stress test.
But that is what I wanted to do. I am taking my first steps to become more and more healthy and lose weight. You know being overweight is bad for you as it puts a lot of stress on your body. Not only the heart but your lungs, your legs, your feet, your self-esteem.
So what is next? Well, it is a bigger stress test and that was scheduled for Dec. 17, 2019, at 7 AM. You know since I work at 10 AM. Gave me time to do this test.
