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.
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.
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
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.
