I started Looping on July 3rd. It’s a new technology and mindset that’s different than what I’m used to (X Code, Github, Zulip were foreign to me 3 months ago). But I’ve always liked a good challenge.
So far, I like it. Sometimes, after reviewing Nightscout data, I would stop and think “I could be doing better with this new fangled stuff”. So I read more, made small adjustments and checked to see how the changes impacted BG trends.
I shouldn’t have been surprised that I walked into my Endo appointment last week with some trepidation (ok, more than I expected or want to admit). Not only was it the first appointment after starting to Loop but it was also the first one with a new Endo after moving from Chicago to Dallas in April of this year.
I relaxed when the Dr shared my A1C. It was a full 1.0 lower than my last A1C 8 months ago and the lowest since diagnosis 4 years ago! That’s the motivation I needed to stay focused on the bigger picture for me … progress not perfection.
