Sunday 04/28/13


I am a Diabetic, have HBP, on 4/20/13 recently started seriously transitioning into eating a low carb lifestyle 7 days per week, purposefully drinking more water daily as it is the most challenging for me and working on a healthier journey one day at a time. :)

Gone are the days of dieting for 4 days and binging on the weekends with a feeling of entitlement.

4/20/13 = 343
4/21/13 = 347.2 = swollen feet/ankles, forgot to take my HBP pills = water retention
4/22/13 = 342 = feet and ankles Less swollen
4/23/13 = 341 = feet and ankles almost normal in size
4/24/13 = 341 = same
4/25/13 = 338.2
4/26/13 = 338.2
4/27/13 = 337.0
4/28/13 = 336.4

    You're off to a great start and an even better finish!

    Your illustration is really important! Being overweight or obese is not just an aesthetics issue. One thing that's not even listed on there is the discrimination experienced from the medical community. They've been so brainwashed, many of them, to think that you're overweight because of some "character flaw" that some of them feel free to look down on you with a degree of contempt.

    Even the ones that are more aware that obesity is a disorder, not a form of laziness, have difficulties because it's just flat-out harder to treat people who are overweight. I remember reading once about a young lady who wanted to donate part of her liver to a family member whose liver was failing, and was cleared for the procedure, but had to lose 40-50 pounds because in her current state her liver was too "fatty" to be safely re-sectioned and donated!

    So many restrictions on our lives!

    Keep posting. Support and encouragement is one of the best guarantees that you'll meet your goals!
