Finally made a choice
Sunday, January 31, 2021
Well I finally got disgusted with myself and joined WW. I'm tired of hurting all the time and feeling miserable. My husband and I have been talking about ways to get myself motivated and I finally decided on joining WW. So far I am loving the app and I've lost 4 pounds since I started. (less than a week). I also talked to a friend from grad school/a previous job who has done Keto for quite awhile and lost 55 pounds on it and maintained. So I'm following a diet that is kind of a Keto/Whole30 mix, which they are pretty similar, but I'm making it work for me. My daughter seems to enjoy it too as she loves fruits and veggies. I can see making bad choices for myself, but I should not feed my daughter crap too. She will have to battle her weight the rest of her life due to genes (and that extra one!) so I want to solidify good habits in her now. My blood sugar is coming back down already too (it was creeping back up despite the insulin). I feel like I have a little more support now too which helps.
I'm still battling that dang plantar fasciitis. I go back on the 16th and will probably get an injection then. I had to have an endometrial biopsy again this past week and some labs drawn, but it was clear and they have officially labeled me perimenopausal. I get my mammogram on the 8th and may try to get in with my PCP about the pain in my left side that's been there a year (they just wrote me off about it last year) and my all over joint pain that she just kind of ignores when I go in. But, if I continue to feel better with eating better, I may not have to push the issue as much. We will see!!!
