Friday, Sept 13, 2013 - Bad News to Positive
Friday, September 13, 2013
Happy Friday. I got up and went to work with my husband and went to the Cardiologist to pick up my phone that I left last Friday. The nurse had my labs back. Well, my numbers are way way off and my sugars are really high, and my chemistry is out of whack. Ok, with my sugars being so high, this is probably the source of me feeling really really crappy. The fact that I got up and started to move helps, and that I had been watching my food. Well, I am now on the really strict diet, the no sugar one and is very hard. Well, I have no choice. I have 30 days on diet to see if numbers will go down. If not, more testing and will need meds to help bring back and if not, I will die. Yes, if I continue with the numbers I will not live long.
Ok, I was kind of bummed. My other numbers she said was good, and glad to see the scale went down and that I am working on it. She was very encouraging, but I now have realized, this is a MUST DO, HAVE TO DO. There is NO OTHER OPTION but to do. I don't want anymore meds if I can help it. My heart sister that some of you know, well she is joining me on this journey because she too, has followed along and we much have the same things wrong.
Positive: I know the plan will help heal me, just hard to follow when you love food.
Positive: My heart sis joining me
Positive: I will lose weight on this
Positive: I will live longer and not have to go on meds
I am sure there is more positive, but right now, that is what I come up with. I had a good day and am 1 day NO Sugar
I can't have any kind of breads, pasta, rice, starches...have to be very low carb...mostly raw veggies or cooked with lean meats and healthy fats.
LOTS OF PRAYERS. I did meet day 1 goal.
I got exercise done today too!
