Setbacks

Sunday, July 27, 2014

I haven't been able to exercise lately because of heavy bleeding.
Very long story short, my uterus hasn't been doing it's job and I had a d&c Friday. Hopefully this will cure what ails me.
Going to try walking again today, but save the more vigorous stuff until I'm sure it's ok.

However, I have absolutely no excuse for not tracking my food and eating poorly.
I gained a few pounds and am even closer to my all time high of 350.
No more.
I'm up early before the baby and planning out all meals for the week. Big shop later with NO junk in the house.
I'm also going to make my tracker public again. Hopefully the pressure will help me out!

This week:
1. Walk daily if reasonable.
2. Drink water at home, not just at work!
3. Stick to meal plans.

An all time high I don't want to see

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

OK I have got to get serious.
I am up over 50 pounds from my prepregnancy weight.
30+ pounds of that is weight I have gained back AFTER having the baby!
My diabetes has become an uncontrolled beast. My pancreas is destroyed, I'm on tons of insulin, sugars through the roof, blood pressure meds, suffer from neuropathy, kidneys failing, yet still...
I eat what I want and don't exercise.
ENOUGH!

This week:
1. Track, and do my best to eat healthily.
2. Water, lots and lots.
3. Exercise every day.

I am 9 pounds shy of my all time high of 350.
I can't breathe. I'm exhausted.
My kids need me and I'm scared I won't see my daughter grow up.

    I'm so happy you are back on here! I often thought of you and wondered how things were going!
It IS crazy amazing that our bodies respond so quickly. That is so encouraging that you have already been able to reduce the insulin after 2 days of great effort! Please do not give up on yourself, just keep doing the next best thing. We will get there! So proud of you for setting and reaching towards your goals! Your little girl needs you! What a gift! emoticon emoticon

    AWWW and here you are supporting me on my blog! Sweetie, you had a baby and it is hard with all the new stress, so you are doing the right thing, getting back to you and eating right and drinking lots of water.
I hope you have friends and family to help support you and do not worry, as you walk the baby, the weight will drop off!
You can do this dear!! We will do it together.

Recovery and the damage done...

Sunday, April 20, 2014

So my c-section recovery wasn't so great. It could have been a lot worse, so believe me no complaining here. Just really, really slow. They stapled and stitched me and after a week took the staples out. I was split open in half for a month which meant ANOTHER month of bed rest. UGH. My belly was so big I couldn't access the incision so my fiancÚ got to clean and dry it every 2 hours for 6 weeks. Lucky boy ;)
My diabetes reset back to "normal" after I delivered, meaning I just needed Metformin, and I have normal blood work from January. It seems that was just a sigh of relief. The pregnancy destroyed my pancreas, I am completely insulin dependent, on blood pressure meds, and am between stage 1 and stage 2 kidney failure. I was dx 2 weeks ago and I still can't believe it. Can't wait to get to a "real" doctor. My Obamacare doesn't kick in until May1.
I don't feel too discouraged by it, although I know I now have to clean up my act for real. Eat clean, daily exercise, lose the weight and keep it off. I can't screw around anymore...there's no leeway. That pretty little girl is good motivation. I'm just so very tired and it's hard to make time for meal planning, etc. I think as I start to get my sugars down and my kidneys functioning better I will have more energy and this will become easier.

    What a gorgeous little girl! I can certainly understand that your priority isn't blogging and keeping in touch with SparkPeople right now - I'd have a hard time tearing myself away from this little one!
