Today’s #HAWMC prompt is to post a vintage picture of yourself and discuss where you were at the time in your treatment. Here goes:
This is me at my lightest weight ever in my adult life: 171 pounds. This is about a year after my last pregnancy during the time in which my diabetes was spiraling out of control. When this picture was taken I had just begun taking both basal and bolus insulin. Within a few months I would return to a higher weight, but my blood sugars would finally be stable.
(That’s my daughter in the background. She would have been about nine then. Such a lovely age….boy do I miss those days! But there is something to be said about living with an opinionated, funny, One Direction obsessed fourteen year old….)
