I had my blood drawn for labs and I went to get the results this past Tuesday. Pretty much everybody in my family has diabetes. My mother also takes medicine to control her cholesterol. Well, on Tuesday, my Dr told me that my cholesterol is high. The good thing is that it's not way out of wack. However, I do need to bring it down and guess what he said......"you need to lose weight". Another good thing is that I re-started my journey to a healthy lifestyle on Aug 7 (funny how I remember the date being that I'm bad with dates). So I've already lost 15lb. He told me I need to lose 30lb. Coincidentally that's my goal. So in 3 months I have another appointment to get labs done again and see if it's gone down. At first I was back and forth (emotionally) about this. I would get mad, then I'd get motivated. Yesterday and today it's been more motivation. I've decided to increase my exercise and hopefully lose it faster. My goal was and still is at least 1lb per week but I am striving for more. One thing I have to do is plan out my dinners cuz that's what's sabatoging me. I don't plan and prepare and so we end up eating out. My goal is to be at 199lb by Nov 16 and eventuall 180lb-185lb by the end of the year. Time to sign off and get to planning.
