New Chapter

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Today is a new day for me. Over the last few years I have had real health concerns. I have cardiomyopathy and my muscles are atrophying for some unknown reason. I have been to several neurologists and still have no answers. I have problems with my memory, trying to articulate my words, walking off from what I am doing (left sink running and flooded kitchen)..ect..For some reason my body is not absorbing vitamins either. I just feel crummy. I'm tired, lethargic, and weak. I also suffer from exercise intolerance.

My cardiologist said my heart function has improved, which is great news, but still have no cause for the way I am feeling. My PCP noticed in some blood work that I am prediabetic, yuck. So now I am taking medication so I do not become diabetic.

This is my new start. I am going to make sure that I log on everyday and track my food intake. I have also started eating out of the fat belly cookbook. My goal is to take off 10% of my weight and then try to exercise again. As long as I try, I know I am doing the right thing for my body.

It is going to be an uphill battle since I love food, but I love my family more. Water is my friend, sweets are not.

    I'm sorry to read your list of health issues--I can only imagine how tough they are to live with on a day-by-day basis.

    But you've taken a good first step by holding yourself accountable, setting a realistic goal of 10% weight-loss and committing to work for it.

    I'm confident you'll succeed. Your attitude is great, and you need that more than anything else. You may not get there as quickly as someone else, but the point is, you WILL get there!

    Best of success to you in all your efforts to improve the quality of your life.
