A new blog post about effort versus A1c:
Your blog post is spot on for many of us Jen. You have to remember too to look how far you've come because of all of the effort and remember that if you weren't putting in the effort the numbers would be much worse.
Just like with exercise...I'd love to be much more active than I am. But then I remind myself that doing what I can is better than sitting on the couch.
I'm hoping that things settle down for you and you eventually get the results that reflect your effort. :)
