Here we go, again....

Well, I'm back to blogging.  Not writing down what I was eating was not the best choice.  So, I started journalling today.  I also bought a 1 year gym membership yesterday.  I'm going to go tomorrow morning with Alisha.  I am really excited about getting going again.  I'm going to try to attach my Wellness Bridge measurements and see what happens.  This is a good way to track my progress. 

Report from Dr yesterday:

Fasting Blood Sugar was higher - 127 - should be around <90
Triglycerides - 220 - should be <125
Cholesterol - 170 - high for me

All of this led to be getting put on Cholesterol medication (statins), had to have a baseline HBA1c blood test to see how my blood sugar compares in 3 months.  I have to have liver blood work done in 6 weeks because of the statins.  And, all of the other labs drawn again in 3 months.  Doc isn't messing around now.

I bawled my eyes out at the appt and then took my fat ass to the college and joined the gym. 

I'll be updating this regularly again with meals, progress, and pictures.

I hope that you will follow along with me for support and encouragement.

  1. I worked out yesterday and then ate chocolate chip cookie bars. For some reason, I don't think that's the right thing to do...

    This morning I was sore and lazy and didn't work out.

    I need to find some willpower somewhere.
