Sick for months

Friday, January 18, 2013

No kidding, I have had one thing after another since November. UTIs, yes more than ONE, pinched nerve, colds, stomach bugs, something yucky and I had it.

I'm wiped!! Unfortunately the exercise and the healthy eating were sacrificed and there have been some pounds added back on. Of course.

Sooooo here I am, back again, and needing to get back to at least healthy eating again. My blood sugar skyrocketed and as of yesterday I was getting readings in the 300s (in the 200s today) and it's scary. I am a type 2 and am on meds, but I know I've been screwing around with my food choices and eating way too many refined carbs. It seems that all of the "easy" food is pretty much poison.

Speaking of poison in food, I want to share a great movie that's on Netflix right now called "Hungry for Change" which is really informative about nutrition and how bad some processed foods are for us. I thought it went quickly and it wasn't boring. It all makes so much sense and now I just have TO DO IT.

I want to say thank you to the wonderful people on here who care so much to keep in touch during my absences. You are each a blessing and please know that you are appreciated.

Here we go...

    Glad you wrote, thank you.
    I'm hoping things are slowing down for you? I know for me - losing weight is the hardest thing to do.
    It has taken me a month to lose a pound, that's why I wrote my one pound blog. I know others are going through the same thing. But then I realized, one pound, it's one that's gone. I will take it, be proud of it and happy with myself.
    With all that has been going on I will embrace that silly one pound loss.
    So - take one day at a time. One moment at a time.
    Never worry what others think. I'm glad you wrote your blog too. Try not to stress about your numbers because that will make you eat - I'm a stress eater too!
    Don't overwhelm yourself with things - pick one thing to change. Do it for the week. Try adding something next week. We will all get there. We are used to a fast fast society. This is not a race, but it is time to take care of ourselves.
    Keep in touch.
