Small victories.

I was able to keep my blood sugars close to normal both before and after breakfast today (about 102-103) for the first time since I was diagnosed.

Small triumphs.

And a big Boo! to shoe stores and shoe makers who don't keep wide sizes of running shoes and hiking shoes.  You know who you are.  Shame on them.

But Asics makes a wonderful diabetic running sock (not that I run, just walk).  Kudos on them.

Let's see if I can continue today's trend on sugars.

Oh, and I should be getting the OK on Monday to start gentle weight training on my left arm.  Finally!  It's healing well.

BIG YAY!! *huggles*

BIG BOO to those shoe stores! I sometimes like a wider shoe, rather than going up a size. *hates having my toes squished*

That's awesoem, KK! Good luck with weight training! *huggles*

YAY on the blood sugars! Keep up the good work!

My local New Balance store has been very accommodating in getting wide-width running shoes. They have always managed to have at least one or two styles in stock that are both wide enough and fit comfortably in other areas. (I have a high arch and my feet are wide near the ball, plus I have short toes, but my heels are normal to narrow, so getting something that fits the front of my foot without the heels popping out is sometimes a challenge.) I've also considered boy's/small men's shoes at times because they do run wider, and sneakers and hiking boots are somewhat unisex in appearance.

I'll have to look into the Asics socks. :)

And more YAY on healing well! *gentle hugs*

I'm so glad that your arm is starting to heal. And I sympathise for not being able to find the right shoes. My BIL has the same problem as you do since he's diabetic as well.

Don't overdo that workout on your arm when you start the wieghts, though. Take it nice and slow!
