Time to get Serious
Tuesday, September 07, 2010
I guess I have been kidding myself. I have been exercising and eating right some of the time, but I knew I wasn't doing everything I needed to be doing and the proof was not only in the scale moving very little but today it was confirmed by my bloodwork. My hopes of getting off the cholesterol medicine was dashed for now. Tomorrow I go to the doctor and I am sure I am going to be told what I already know-I have to get serious about what I am eating if I don't want to end up like my father and grandmother. They both had heart attacks-my father died in his early 50's and my grandmother at 65 soooo, I am going to start tracking what I am eating and holding myself accountable.
The only good news was my blood sugar was in the normal range so for now that is not a problem, but if I don't take care of myself, it probably will be as diabetes runs in both sides of my family.
I have only myself to blame. I thought my walking 3 or more miles 4-5 times a week and swimming would be enough and I was not diligent with my food. WRONG.
I do not want to be another statistic, I want to break this cycle. I want to be a healthy BMI.
With the support of my husband and my friends-those who are right here around me and those of you in cyberspace, I know I can succeed. I love to read the success stories on Spark blogs and I want one of those to be mine.
I know what I have to do, now I just have to do it. I want to lose this weight one last time and live the rest of my life as a healthy person, too many people count on me for me to not do everything that I can to stay healthy.
