Great job in January! Now that you have established some good practices for diabetics—essential no matter what dietary lifestyle or approach to diabetes management you take—let’s refine it even more by practicing portion control, also an essential for all diabetics, regardless of what else you do or don’t do for your diabetic health. And you need to learn what it means to “eat to your meter,” rather than just taking pills or insulin to “cover” what you eat. But first let’s check your progress.

February 1 – Check Your Progress

Goal: To measure and evaluate your progress.

  • Check and record your
    • Weight and body measurements
    • Clothes sizes (shirt/top, dress, skirt, pants, shoes, underwear)
    • Blood pressure and heart rate
    • Average daily blood glucose
  • Compare to January 1

Now, move ahead to the February challenge!
