wake up call?

Friday, July 06, 2012

Today, I went to the lady doctor today. The doctor told me that if I don't get my diabietes under control, I will continue to develope more medical issues. To get my diabietes under control, I will need to loose the weight.

I did really good the first week on Spark when I followed the menu plan provided. The second week, I tried to do it on my own. Such a bad idea at this stage of the game. Out of the 7 pounds down, 5 were put back on.

I told my husband today what the doctor said, and he asked if I had thought about surgery. Of course I have not. Mostly becuase I know my mind is not in the right spot right now. I can tell he is getting frustrated about my weight and even talking about it. I try not to talk about it so much.

I hope I get things under control before I do unrepairable harm to this wonderful body that I had been given.

    Thanks everyone for the ecouragement. Right now this is bigger than myself and I know now that I need support. My oldest son is my biggest inspiration now. Since February he is down from 280 to 298!!! He is doing it all on his own. I am so proud of him. Now I want to be smaller than him again. More to come. Thanks again. emoticon

    Deanna, Time is an issue and carving out personal time is even more difficult. set out time for exercise or videos 10 minutes 2 x a day. The other thing that might help with your schedule is plan lunches and snacks a week ahead and pack them the night before. plan a day or 2 for eating out. and on opposite days plan a nice dessert(sugar free!) emoticon

    You are facing reality and that's a good beginning! It's worth the trouble. Just baby steps will help you show improvement. We CAN do this!

    Remember that you're learning all new habits and ways of living and the journey will have both ups and downs (more of the latter in the long run).
