As October rolled around, my life began to change. Happy Birthday, you are pre~diabetic, is not exactly what every 196 pound 48 year old woman wants to hear. That is what happened October 2014.
Let me assure you that October 2015 will be different!! My first appointment with a Nutritionist, I was told… you have to loose 66 pounds. I have a long journey, and yes… I am working hard!!
Firstly, getting an exercise plan and a diet plan in place are monumental… but necessary.
My first move to exercise was a treadmill… that was back on October 16, I hardly made that first mile, and as my journal reports, I was exhausted.
Today is December 30, 2014 and I now weigh 168. My treadmill and I spend 4.0 miles a day together…I go as fast as I can!! At the end of that experience, I look as if I have been running from a dog!! Now that I am nearing the half way mark… I am feeling somewhat better and my morning blood sugars are most often below 100, but not always.
I am super good at carb cutting recipes, and that has made a HUGE difference! At least I don't have to deprive myself of as many things.
This journey, is hard, support and understanding are so important to my success.
Thank you, each of you. For just being here.
