I'm back.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Like so many others before me, I drifted off, gained weight again, and am now back. What triggered my return, when I've thought about returning so many times before? I just got a call from my doctor that my blood tests indicate I'm prediabetic (also called borderline diabetic). I must lose weight and change my eating habits in order to back off from full-blown diabetes, and to reduce my risk of other health impacts.

I've been unhappy with the state of my body and my health for quite some time, but hadn't quite got up the gumption to change it. Medical news can be a huge motivator.

I am motivated.

I need to cut WAY down on carbs, sugars and processed foods. Eat lots of veggies. Lose weight. Exercise more.

I look forward to getting back in the swing of things.

    emoticon back! I'm trying the anti-inflammatory diet and would love for you to join the team (shameless plug), but seriously, my DH has pain, borderline diabetes and hypertension and I'm hoping to get it under control with foods.
Regardless, glad to see you!
