      I’ll have to wait 3-4 months for another lab test, then from there, I’ll find out. But still, I would have to continue on with my current eating/exercise habits for me to remain “normal.”

    That’s amazing to hear! ^^ I’m currently losing weight-I lost over 35 lbs and still counting! My health is good but it can always be better, you know?

      As the saying goes, if we can do good, we can do better. :) Good luck to both of us. Here’s to a longer, happier life. :D

      How have you been Kya? I’ve missed going to everyone’s blogs as the whole wedding stuff (not mine, my brother’s LOL) has taken a lot of my free time. Still, I’m happy though, that I’m able to do something for my brother and his lovely fiancee with the skills I’ve learned and love (from the invitations to art to the wedding site :) ).

      I’ve read that you haven’t made (much) progress with your quitting to smoke. I’ve heard that quitting smoking is really difficult, especially for people who have been smoking for so many years. It’s basically the same as dieting, where you can’t help yourself but love so much food, especially comfort food, that it’s difficult to depart from it. But, remember, you’ve succeeded in reducing your sugar intake (which in a way, inspired me to continue on eating in moderation with less sweets that led me to “reversing” my diabetes slowly but surely today), so very soon, you’ll succeed in quitting smoking too.

      I should’ve commented that in your blog, but I do hope you read this. :)

    Congratulations on your success! However, I’m just a tad bit confused on the arrangement your doctor gave you. You stated that you went from being a type 2 diabetic level to a pre-diabetic level? I thought it was the other way around? The only reason why I am confused is because I used to be type 2 diabetic until I had reversed the process entirely. In 2004, I was pre-diabetic and was until the year 2010. The year 2010, I became type 2. If it wasn’t for my land-lady, I probably would have never reversed the process. Anyways, I’m overwhelmed with joy that you were able to go down a level. Congratulations, you deserve that happy hour lunch. I will be blogging about my diabetes history shortly.

    Also, did you know that if you had the right diet and exercise, you can potentially get rid of your eye glasses? I did this for a year straight! I ate carrots, which I read are really good for your eyes and have other benefits, and not only that will improve your vision. I actually forced myself to eat cooked carrots as I can’t stand raw carrots.

      It reversed from Type 2 diabetes level to borderline level (pre-diabetes), so I’m on the border between diabetic and normal. That’s what I meant. My sugar level significantly went down.

      Regarding my eyesight, a “good” sign (maybe?) is that when I’m reading or if I’m on a close range, I don’t wear my glasses (I’m nearsighted). I used to wear my glasses whenever I’m viewing both near and far before, but now that doesn’t apply anymore. For example, when I’m writing, drawing, or doing calligraphy/lettering, I take my glasses off.

    I am so happy for you! I hope sometime in the near future, you’ll be diabetes-free. Keep it up, Adri. You’re doing so well ^_^

    Those parmesan fries look yummy! Getting treats once in a while is always nice :D

      Thanks Tara! Hopefully I’d be able to reverse it and never have to worry about having too much sugar in my body, but I’ve already gotten used to my current habits now, so I’ll continue on as always. :)
