Yeah, I gave up on losing weight....but now I am back! I'm serious now. I hate the way Ive been feeling...Im tired all the time & I just want to lay around and eat all the time. This late night eating & drinking isnt helping either. I recently found out that my sister is now a diabetic & she has to have surgery to have her gallbladder removed. She has gallstones, kidney stones, and a fatty liver. She had to stop taking her blood sugar medicine because of the problems. She has to be extra cautious about eating...which means if she consumes any carbs, her blood sugar is out the roof. All this time she thought she was in good health, but it turns out she wasn't eating right. I dont want this to happen to me. So I will use my sister as my inspiration & as my motivation to eat healthier & exercise.
Yes, it will be nice to be slim & be able to wear cute clothes...but for me its just being healthy thats important...I dont want to have to face sitting down with a doctor, telling me he has bad news all because I didnt treat my body right. So I have started making progress now...usually I always have late night snacks (bowl of cereal.....or a bagel w/ cream cheese.....or leftovers....sometimes if my husband gets off work at night, I'll have him stop at McDonalds or something to get me burgers) BUT tonight, no late night snacks...I will admit Im drinking a can of Mt. Dew but honestly, I think thats good progress considering how much I usually eat when its late.
Another important thing, the holiday season has started...Im gonna need that energy for work...Im constantly on my feet, walking back & forth-I cant afford to be tired all the time or getting sick..I need food thats great for energy & helpful to my immune system.
This will be hard work & I am just going to have to really push myself. Go walking, cut down on portions, NO late night snacks!!! :) I can do it. I know I can.
