I was at the doctor today for my annual checkup, not good. Let me first start out with the good side of things --my blood pressure is so much better, the best thing I could have done, was what I did last year ...moved out from the drama, and unneeded stress. I joined a health club to get back on the road to health, weighed in over two hundred pounds, going to the fitness club I lost 6 lbs, but gained 3 back.
Now the depressing news from today, my doc said that my cholesterol was too high, borderline diabetic. This scared me something awful. So now it's a wake-up call for me. cry

It's my fault, I've been eating too many starches so the doc is making me cut out :corn, rice, pasta, breads, desserts, no creamy stuff like alfredo, sugar and juices. nono

I had no idea this was happening to me, but I was feeling lightheaded last week and it scared me enough to make the doctor's appt. Well the good thing is the doc said that he's glad I came in because we caught it in time, but for the next three months I'm restricted to the better stuff, veggies, fish, chicken, fruits, eggs, cheese, and no cals in the drinks...which means, water. I'm good with all of that, I'm just kind of depressed because I've been on the borderline and didn't know it. But you know, my body was sending the signals...glad I listened. I had an EKG also, so the doc says I'm good for exercise. I've got to lose 17 lbs, and you know I've been wanting to lose weight...well guess I'm definitely on the road for better health now.
I've never been overweight, or this high in weight so it's time for me to make a mends. Doc also has me taking 1 81mg tab of aspirin and 1 tab of Vitamin D which he said I was low on also. So I need a total makeover eyes
I'm trying to get my head into gear, so I may bounce back and forth here as the time goes by, but I know this is good for me. And I want to be healthy and alive, I'm no good sickly or dead. You know maybe this will help the depression that I run into.

Glad to hear that you went and got checked out. I'm kinda in the same boat as you, due to my depression i gained about 40 lbs. :( fell out of shape and am just now at a point where i feel motivated enough to get back on the right track. Its hard, see if you can get some support system to help you get going, that is my problem, its hard to motivate myself, but when there are others involved it really helps. Maybe we should have a post here where we do daily or weekly check-ins with diet updates, exercise logs, and weigh-ins? I know i could use that motivation.
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

with your past and your future precisely divided, Am I at that moment?. . I haven't decided.

Geo, that sounds like a good idea. Start a thread for progress.

Youngmil, I can't believe that you are wondering about going back to her. It is totally up to you, but you have escaped the drama. And you are doing better. Stay on the right track here.

I have to get another blood draw because my sugar was a little high. It was 100. What was yours? I too take vitamin D3. It gives you energy. Makes you feel good too. I take a couple 1,000 ius a day.

I hope that you feel better soon. Keep your chin up. You will get your sugar and chloresterol down soon,.

Hugs, Karen

Can I just make a suggestion if the support thread gets started. (I think it is a great idea BTW, and are right behind all of you, and are very proud of any goal reached)

Can I suggest that the first post is very clear what the intention is, that it is a support for people to keep them motivated with becoming healthy. I battled an ED for 14yrs, and for me, weekly wieghs and compassions are a real trigger, and if we do have others here that have borderline or established ED, it would very much trigger them as well.

Just for your consideration

I can start a progress thread. And you all can put down what you are making progress with. I will see if I can make this how you want it.
