3 years passed and it's time for a new Day 1
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Well, I walked away from SparkPeople and holding my self accountable for my actions for 3 years and this is what I have to show for it: gained it all back.
With the big 4-0 around the corner and a recent diagnosis of pre-diebetes, I am back to find my motivation to lose weight. Doctors orders are 10% weight loss and for those of you counting (I know I am), that's 29.2 pounds.
I don't know how I feel about all of this yet because even though I got the news from my doctor 2 weeks ago, I've been ignoring it.
Truth be told, I've been ignoring it for a while. I've had some tell-tale signs for nearly a year now but I've been in denial.
Type 2 diabetes runs in my family but I didn't, no, don't want to think about it happening to me. It's always the other guys, right? Afterall, I already lost the genetic roulette when I learned I was BRCA1 positive.
So I've been throwing myself a big pity party for one (again) for the last 2 weeks.
Why me?! But I love my ice cream and cookies and potatoes and rice and candy!!! It's not fair!!!
Time to suck it up
and get on with it.
