Day 29/231 to go/week 5 - Wakeup Call
Sunday, March 17, 2019
Oh dear. I was doing so well and then fell off the wagon. Eating and checking in with SparkPeople. On Friday I had some preventive health screenings done and everything was good except my weight (which I expected AND MY BLOOD GLUCOSE! I never had a glucose reading of 144! That’s diabetic. A year ago it was 105. So that scared me.
I immediately made an apppointment to see my family doctor and to have another round of bloodwork done to make sure nothing happened with the reading. They used a finger prick rather than vein for the blood.
I also researched weight management programs and our local medical center has a non-surgical program. I am going to a free intro meeting tomorrow morning!
I also began to research how to eat to get blood glucose down and changed my diet immediately.
And today I got back in SparkPeople!
Nothing like a medical result to scare the daylights out of you and motivate you to get back to work!
