Even though I really like my doctor (she's actually an LPN) she doesn't sugar coat things. She's very straight forward and I knew that weight would be the topic of the day. First peeing in a cup...always a favorite activity of mine...then I went in to get weighed. Ugh.
After the usual irritations - temperature, blood pressure, updating my information - she got down to business. We had a long talk about losing weight, getting healthy and what it means if I don't. She was very understanding and nice about the situation but she said that dreaded word...obese.
I'm not proud of that but I put it all out here because I need to be held accountable. I need to take better care of myself. I need some motivation.
I've never been a small person, just ask my Lil Sis. But in the past 12 years of marriage my weight has grown with my happiness and my husband, God love him, he loves me all the same. I can't think of one time he ever made me feel less than beautiful.
This however is not about being vain. It's about being healthy. I got my lab results yesterday and they show I'm pre-diabetic, my cholesterol is high and my CRP is elevated. She recommends taking a baby aspirin everyday for the CRP in addition to losing weight and exercising. She also recommended reading You On A Diet or doing Weight Watchers.
On Friday I started drinking
Once I get that out of the way then I will focus on exercising because I know that will the hardest for me to do. I know I need to do it but being motivated to do it is a whole different thing.
Three days into this I'm okay but I've got a long way to go.
