So I am moving in the right direction for the first time in a long time as it shows in the graph from sparks:
So why would I change things? I had a eye opening visit with my Dr. last week as well as a nutritionist. I was shocked to be told I was really at a diabetic stage in my life and was given meds and a chart of my blood work. I do not want to be diabetic. I want to be lean and mean in 2011. I have a precious, now 1 year old granddaughter that is the light of my life and has given me new reasons to be healthy.
so when I look at this picture I know I should see a happy person with a beautiful being that is a gift from God. But, when I am low in spirits, all I see is how big I am. That stops now.
So I have been put on a diet that is carb counting. They tweaked what my diet says on sparks to fit a diabetic lifestyle. meaning lower carbs and calories. they were so impressed with my food diary that I brought to them and praised Sparkpeople. So for that I give thanks. Stay tuned for a new me in 2011!
