A strange thing happened around week StrictionD Review three of my "transformation". A few of my co-workers began "brown-bagging" their lunches too. I began to engage in conversations about healthy eating habits and they started to tell me I was a good influence. My attitude changed as my co-workers viewed me as the "poster child" for healthy lifestyle.Break time became a time we got out and walked around the parking lot. Some of us went to the gym to start working out after work. Actually, the money I had spent on lunch every day turned into the money I paid to the gym every month! My priorities began to change. Do you see the transformation? I no longer "socialized" over fast-food. My friends and I talked in the lunch room with our brown bags and at Curves. As I got healthier, I got happier and my hemoglobin A1C began to lower.When I first began my journey with diabetes my hemoglobin A1C was 9.0. By the time I left my place of employment about five years later, it was 6.6. I had traded in my diet Dr. Pepper for lemon water and began to eat more lean protein and complex carbohydrates and low-sugar fruits and veggies galore! I only worked out 3 days a week for thirty minutes at Curves.
