Another Yearly Blog

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

So here it is, almost a year later since my last blog post. I am heavier now, and just had my bloodwork done. Not good news for me. My triglycerides are off the chart again (600+). Cholesterol is at 219 (should be under 200). So back on the diet. I need to get off the meds that I am on. Trying again.....hopefully with a new attitude.

    Three days of logging in to Spark People. I am really on a roll now! Learned something about why I feel the need to eat out yesterday. I work from home most days and have students during my lunch time. When i finish teaching I am ready to eat and don't want to take time to cook or fix something, so I head out to get food. So the new plan is to fix food in the morning or the day before so that I can just put stuff together in a jiff. Time will tell. I need to stay committed to my goals. emoticon

    The Dr. seems generally supportive. I just don't take well to any of the BP meds I have been on. I think you need to be your own Dr. in many cases. The answer for me is pretty plain. Although I get enough exercise, my diet sucks. Proud to say that I cooked food yesterday and did not eat out at any fast food places. Sugar tends to be the culprit that raises my triglycerides so I didn't over indulge on the sweets. One day down, Hoooray. Just got to stay on track. Thanks for the encouragement!!!!

    I'm curious -- what support (if any) did your Dr provide? My past experiences has been very minimal -- at best lip service -- which leads me to believe some in the medical profession look at us as just a revenue stream.

In any case, good luck, and here's hoping your Dr is part of the solution.
