So my last blog was about the positive sounding job interview. Yeah, that didn't work out so I'm still out of work. But I still have a roof over my head so it could ALWAYS be worse!
With that in mind I do still have to vent, lol. So time with the family over the holidays was ... interesting. We had 2 trips to the ER, my 75 year old uncle was hospitalized and FINALLY diagnosed with congestive heart failure. I say finally because he'd been back and forth to different cardiologists and they pretty much told him you're "just getting old". At least with a diagnosis we can all wrap our heads around what's going on and how he needs to proceed. Heck I had my own share of unanswered questions with my health I know how frustrating it is.
Mom was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I also was able to clearly see where I developed my dysfunctional relationship with food...her "reward" for low blood sugar was a slice of pie. *SMH*
I went (what I felt) was really off track being with them. My sodium content was sky high and every day I was over my calories (never more than 200 but STILL). I'm getting better. Getting back on track and I've promised myself that even if it's right here in my bedroom in front of this computer (thanks SparkPeople for the videos) I'm gonna exercise more! Not a New Years resolution just something that I'm gonna do for me.
I still have a really hard time grasping that I'm done with 42 (42!!) pounds just from changing the way I eat. Thank you SP for the structure, ty friends for the support & yay me for doing this much!
