Ok-So good news...
Im NOT diabetic :) , I am hypoglycemic . ive known that for a long time, but I was expecting her to tell me I had diabetes. I however WAS NOT expecting her to say I have High CHOLESTEROL. She said shes very concerned that a 29 yr old should NOT have high cholesterol like I do. My TOTAL cholesterol was averaged out to be 276. It needs to be 200 or lower. I do have GOOD cholesterol as well she told me it will help me with the bad cholesterol. Genetics factors in it, that came up with 176, both my father and mom have high cholesterol. (thanks mom and dad)
And my diet came to 186.
So shes giving me 6 months, before I get another round of blood taken. If its the same or higher then I have to be put on medication. If its lower , then theres hope. And chances are I wont need meds.
I get really overwhelmed and I tear up every time I talk about being put on meds. Im freakin 29 yrs old! WTF! I shouldn't be put on freakin meds! No! I wont allow it! Im gonna do this!
Now I know I said In my last blog I wanted to get back with ww. However I don't think its gonna be realistic right now. I went 4 days last week and EVERY DAY I felt like crap because my sugar dropped, I cant live like that. I honestly cant. So my main concern and only one other then exercise, is TRACKING EVERYTHING I EAT. I can NOT slack with tracking. I know I can do this AS LONG AS I TRACK. Once I go off tracking im screwed. I truly am. I need to write DOWN EVERY THAT GOES into my mouth. NO EXCUSES!
I just ordered a new exercise dvd, so when im not out side, I have something new to do.
I really need the support of my spark friends, more then ever right now. I need to lose weight so my cholesterol is good.
I called my mom and my nana to tell them, and no one is making a huge deal about this other then me and the dr! I do have the support of my brother and best friend. But seriously this can LEAD to WORSE things!
My nana was like oh all u have to do is lose weight. Ok, u make it sound like its SOOOOOO SIMPLE! Its not simple! It takes HARD WORK, I feel the mental aspect is so much more simple then the physical aspect. gr!
But I have no choice, and im gonna make it happen!
