Today is a new day for me. Over the last few years I have had real health concerns. I have cardiomyopathy and my muscles are atrophying for some unknown reason. I have been to several neurologists and still have no answers. I have problems with my memory, trying to articulate my words, walking off from what I am doing (left sink running and flooded kitchen)..ect..For some reason my body is not absorbing vitamins either. I just feel crummy. I'm tired, lethargic, and weak. I also suffer from exercise intolerance.
My cardiologist said my heart function has improved, which is great news, but still have no cause for the way I am feeling. My PCP noticed in some blood work that I am prediabetic, yuck. So now I am taking medication so I do not become diabetic.
This is my new start. I am going to make sure that I log on everyday and track my food intake. I have also started eating out of the fat belly cookbook. My goal is to take off 10% of my weight and then try to exercise again. As long as I try, I know I am doing the right thing for my body.
It is going to be an uphill battle since I love food, but I love my family more. Water is my friend, sweets are not.
