Starting over, again!!!

Saturday, October 05, 2013

I know I have been here so many times, and said I am starting over, that it is difficult to believe myself that this is the real thing. But it has to be. I have been diagnosed with Hyperlipidemia, and started on Medication. In addition I got the news that I am pre-diabetic. So if I don't want to have diabetes and it's complications, now is my last chance to turn onto the correct side of the fork in the road. I am choosing to take the healthy side of it. I know it will take a lot of self discipline, but there is no other choice. It doesn't mean I will never ever get to eat the foods I love so dearly, it just means I have to make them a rare occurrence, and not a weekly or daily thing. I need to find an activity I love, and be consistent with it. I just have to do the grown up thing now. After all, I turned 40 years old, it is time to grow up and do the right things.

    You can do it!

Have you found that activity you love yet? Do you like walking? Doesn't have to be far or fast to start with. Any where nice to walk where you live/work?

    emoticon You can do it, and you will do it. And what's more, you will enjoy it! (I'm just realizing that again now!) Have fun!
