Embarrassed & Humilated

Monday, November 01, 2010

Hard to believe the last log in was in Feb. Wow, what a year I have had. I have been having issues with my liver function being elevated (ALT) for months without being able to find out why. I have had multiple testing done since April still no answers. I am at my highest weight EVER and feel pretty much miserable. GI doc told me I had to stop the yo yo dieting or I would not live as long as I should. Really makes you think do I want to set myself up for failure again? I mean I have been a weight loss roller coaster for the past 30 years!!! I have gained 40 lbs since last fall. And when I try to lose weight it just doesn't seem to want to budge like before. Had a very humiliating struggle to reach Clingmans Dome in TN a couple of weeks back and really want to do better. So here I am on a Monday on the 1st day of the month with Thanksgiving just a few weeks away. But at least I am here, and for now that will have to do!

    Vick, I just found this on your page TODAY! I didn't even know you had gotten back on here! Well, I am back too!

    The truth about this weight issue and me is just a ton of excuses, I don't get any better cause I don't DO any better! "If you keep doing what you have always done, you will get what you always have!" I am tired of listeneing to myself. IF I truly commit to this, I WILL do it...and so will YOU! It is in our nature to do so~we are overcomers! All it really takes is making up our mind...plain & simple. emoticon

    Thanks Pat. I was having a bit of a pity party. I have had the liver level elevation for about a year. All tests and scans have come back ok so we continue to monitor. Now my phosphorus level is high also. I do believe all this extra weight is contributing. Consistency has always been my problem. So many times with me it is all or nothing. That is the mindset I need to overcome.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Continuing the journey... emoticon

    You are much too young to start with the health problems. A lot is a state of mind and life changes. One day does not make us or break us, whether it be exercise or diet. Consistency is the name of the game, record your food intake and if you can exercise DO IT!! You do not want to wait until medicines have done damage that exercise is limited..

    Only you can decide the diet and exercise that will work for you. We are all a bit different. Is the elevated liver ALT something new? Stress can create most everything. Control your diet and exercise and have blood work done every 3 months to see improvement. You can do it lady. I know you can.
