Pretty scared

Monday, October 14, 2013

I'm pretty freaked out by the results of a health screening I got yesterday. I am almost 20 years OLDER than my age as far as vascular health goes. SO scared. But, I'm facing the fear and trusting the journey.

Got my nutritional goals added in and I've started tracking food today. I'm going to get some blood work done and then march into my dr's office and demand that he work w/ me on getting healthy.

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! I already take fish oil, but had stopped exercising. I'm definitely going to walk more--in spite of my bad feet--another issue!!

    My triglycerides were elevated too and I was on a bad path. I started walking every day, staying within my calorie range. I take Fish oil daily. Since the beginning of the year, I am down almost 37 lbs and my triglycerides are now normal and I hope to be coming off of my blood pressure medication in November. You can do it. I just takes dedication. I walk 10,000 to 12,000 steps a day - walking, elliptical or running.
