Time to re evaluate how to reach my goals in 2011

Saturday, November 27, 2010

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!

    Good luck with getting the diabetes under control. emoticon I've been on SP for one year and I've been working with a nutritionist for the last several months. My blood sugars are in the normal range now and I'm going back to the doctor in December to see what my A1C is. I'm so hoping he'll let me cut back on some of my meds!Following the eating plan really works!!

    ""AWESOME"" Thinking...and in the right direction too....I don't at all see a BIG person in this picture....What I see is the vibrant wide sparkling 'eyes' and a Happy smile.

    And a new Wanne in 2011....
