Well last week, I went & got my physical. Honestly, I thought that maybe my numbers were okay but in the back of my mind I wondered what the doctor might say. Other than "Cass your obese & need to lose weight"...
I know that honestly at 241 pounds that I am not healthy but was hopeful that I wouldn't be PRE-DIABETIC... It could've been worst & I could've been diagnosed with FULL DIABETES. So, what I take from this is that I MUST make changes. I'm only 32 years old & too young to be on diabetes medication. I talked with my hubby & today we are going walking. There is so much information I have to read or learn about, on monitoring my glucose levels. Also, learned that my iron is very low & need to be on prescription iron.
It's more than just no more cakes, cookies. I really have to learn how breads, pasta's etc are turned into sugar & impact me. I have to go back in 3 months to make sure my numbers are better so I am not placed on medication. I have the power & control to change this. It sucks that this is what it takes to really make me get SERIOUS about my health.
Today after work, me & my hubby are going walking. I've got to start somewhere. Up until today, I had been making excuses why I can't exercise after work, yes I'm truly tired but am I too tired that I am okay with being on medication - NO I'M not... So that means that I no matter how tired I am I make time in the afternoon to get my butt off the couch & do something.
TO GET REAL!!!
