Like many people, I want to lose weight. Like many people, I have again made it a New Years Resolution. I do every year and every year I fail. However, this year is different. Shortly before Christmas I had routine blood work done and my cholesterol was sky high. We’re talking high LDL, low HDL, high triglycerides…it is the worst combo you could have. Besides having high cholesterol, my glucose level was borderline high.
This was the wake up call I needed. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had to follow the diabetic diet. Whenever I would get pissed off about not being able to eat something, I quickly got over it. I was not doing the diet for me. I as doing it for the health of my baby. For two years since having her, I told myself I as going to do that diet again. But I didn’t. I didn’t have a reason to. However, now I have my reason staring at me in black and white. High cholesterol could lead to stroke or heart attack…high glucose could lead to diabetes.
Starting tomorrow, I am going to outline on my blog exactly what I am going to do as a diet. I am going to weigh myself and list my starting weight (can’t believe I am going to do that lol) on my blog. I am going to have my husband measure me. Every Sunday I will weigh in and post my weight along with my meal plan for the week. Each month I will have my husband remeasure me.
Anyone who would like to join me in this effort, go for it! Having weight loss buddies would be very benefitial!
