Through the Storm

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Well, those holidays were brutal. Not only was it the holidays but we had our daughters wedding to attend and we had 4 weeks with house guests. Blessed beyond measure in all of these things. eating and activity was atrocious. I have now topped a new high as far as how much I weigh. As a result i ended up in the ER yesterday with out of control blood pressure again. They injected me with 3 different drugs and consume 2 others before they could get it to stop climbing. Sent me home with 3 more prescriptions to add on top of the 3 I already have. One was a sleep aide. I did manage to get 8 hours of sleep for a change but the BP is still elevated today. Scary stuff.

We have been 3 weeks with gluten free eating. Neither of us have a gluten intolerance but everyone is telling us how this is the answer. I'm kind of tired of everyone having the new answer to this problem with obesity. I'm pretty sure that way back in my donut craving brain there is a message that keeps trying to scream past the tofu and wheat free products that if I would just eat more fruits and veggies, lean meats and consume less fats and sugars and move my sizable posterior that things would improve. The voice kind of sounds like my sweet, departed grandmother. I always used to listen to her. Probably should start to do that again.

I joined Weight Watchers again yesterday. Double up on accountability? Couldn't hurt. It was either that or I was going to call NutriSystem. This seemed like a btter idea.

I am going to treat this like an addiction and just try to get through one day at a time. I need to make it through today.

    You've had a lot of stress and things pulling you in many directions. Now that life has settled down, you can concentrate on you. HUGS!

    Sorry you are struggling. I am kind of hitting a plateau and I am starting a new program for me. You may want to check it out. It is the Metabolism Miracle. It is low carb, but it really focuses on people with insulin resistance and it seems to make sense. It is for people who cut calories and still really cannot seem to lose the weight. It is written by a dietician who worked with people who cut calories and exercised but still struggled and then she ended up in the same boat. I am starting it on Monday. I'll let you know how it goes. Hang in there and hope you are doing better!

    So sorry to hear about your experience. Stress can certainly sabotage our efforts. I'm sure that you will get things under control. Keep blogging, and tracking and you can exercise by walking. I bought a Leslie Sansone DVD and it helped tremendously. emoticon
