Doctor's Orders

Friday, September 14, 2012

A few weeks ago I went to my doctor to check my glucose. I've gained about 60 pounds in the past 2-3 years and I've been feeling very sluggish and just BLAH from all this extra weight, crappy foods, and lack of exercise. Well... my blood results were heart stopping.
My glucose (which I was convinced was my main problem) is 127 which is techincally 1 point into diabetic.
When she told me this...my heart stopped. My triglycerides are 312. 312!!!!! It's supposed to be under 150 to be in a healthy range. Oh my gosh.
I need to lose 60 pounds and bring down my glucose and triglycerides in 6 months at my next check up. If not I will be put on medication FOR LIFE (she said).
I got off the phone and cried.
That was my wake up call.

Starting weight: 260
Current weight: 250 (after 2 weeks)
Glucose: 127
Triglycerides: 312

I can do this.
