Well the only yay was I am actually the weight I thought I was so my home scale is correct at 339. Thats the only upside, I have high blood pressure that they want to put me on medication for, (I'm only 25), I'm prediabetic and running a very real risk of developing Type 2 diabetes if I don't lose the weight. My chlolesterol is elevated and I'm currently in the morbidly obese catergory.
Morbidly. What a godawful word, if the obese(which puts me in mind of "a beast") wasn't enough I have to be disgustingly so. The other bright side if this can be considered bright is my numbers are much better than they were last time so I do know I am making changes in the right direction. And I actually did something bright and brought the diet I was considering to my doctor to get approval. (You Know how all the books and programs say that but few people do :))
It seems I carry most of my weight around my waist and unfortunately thats the worst type of fat there is, and if my gallbladder attack last year wasn't enough of a wake up call, he wants me to consider having gastric bypass.
Now no offense to anyone who chose that route, to each his own, but for me that's a hell naw situation. I will not have surgical intervention, I am not so hardheaded and lazy that I can't put two simple things together and get the correct solution. Quit putting junk in my body and start moving my ass and Voila! It equals to a healthier Cyone.
I have a physical in March and I am bound and determined to be at least 50lbs lighter to improve my numbers, I hate needles and I don't want to be diabetic, and I damn sho ain't having surgery to do for me what I can and will do for myself.
I got approval to try Atkins out, I need to eliminate a lot of the unhealthy carbs that spike my blood sugar and this seems the best way to go, so wish me luck ladies, I'm on a mission.
Got my grocery shopping done and made sure I found as many healthy veggies I could and I'm raring to start.
Best of luck everyone!
