Diet Dishin' #8 - Picking Up the Pieces

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

So it has been a little under a year since I have updated my blog, which in a sense, is a reflection of the job that I've done taking care of myself. I recently went to the doctor and found out that I'm currently at my heaviest. It's one thing to notice that your clothes is getting tighter and your breathing becomes more labored. It's even worse to be told by your doctor that you are at your heaviest and that you have to add yet another medication to your regimen. After finding out the above news, I came to the conclusion that there's two different ways to go about the whole scenario. I can, A. Throw myself a "woe-is-me" get-together with me and ice cream, chocolate, and other sweets or B. I can heed my doctor's advice and focus on my health. I know that I have extolled the values of getting on the right path and I've had my fair share, but I think that this is it. The proverbial time to "put up or shut up." I think that I'm at a point where although youth is still on my side, it's not necessarily to the same degree that was there when I say, 18 or 19 years old. I've also come to understand that there also has to be accountability on my part. After all, it's not my brother's fault that I had some chocolate. It's not my mother's fault if I go through the drive-thru and binge on the dollar items. It's mine. After doing some soul-searching, I've come to the conclusion that I need to go through a metamorphosis. I have the right tools. I have sparkpeople.com and the amazing teams within it. I also have a really great support system in terms of family and friends. So, as the title of my blog states, I'm going to pick up the pieces. Like a butterfly, I'm also going through a change. This time, it's going to be for a healthier me. Stay tuned, folks. :-)
