I have had a few downturns with my health lately. Totally my own fault. I know there are certain things that I just should not eat because of liver problems but I thought because I was doing so good (and after one of my doctor's said I could take back some food) of course I did! I totally know better and I wound up gaining again and feeling lousy. I get tired easier and my panic attacks came back with a vengeance.
Two weeks ago I weighed myself and was back up to 237.5. NOT GOOD AT ALL!!! I also had blood tests that came back that I am pre-diabetic. Things need to change!
I immediately went back on the lifestyle my internist set up almost 10 years ago. Today I am back down to 226.5 and feeling better, I have not had a panic attack in almost a week. I am planning my meals very carefully to make sure I get the nutrients my body NEEDS, so far so good.
I took one of my meals to our daughters on the weekend and she was amazed at how full she was but most of all how much she enjoyed her meal. Hubby and daughter had a few treats but I stuck to my goals and felt so proud of myself.
I will do this because I want to be healthy to be around to enjoy all my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
Our grandson, his wife and 3 little ones came to our house last night and brought supper. I could have the salad but instead of sausage I had one of my homemade vegan burgers that I had in the freezer. It was awesome.
I know with help from my Sparkfriends I am going to succeed!
