Ya know, I just realized I don't keep liquor in my house cause I can't stop at one drink. So, I just don't drink any ever!
Sometimes these things are life and death choices. So, ya have to do "what you have to" to save your own life!
As someone who has weighed 297lbs before and was up to 2 different blood pressure meds, antidepressants, 2 asthma meds and could barely walk my dogs to the corner just a couple of months ago, I feel like I hit the lottery at only 20lbs. My blood pressure and blood sugar have been almost normal for more than a month, I'm sleeping and my energy is up most days. This is all the proof I need that extra weight, overeating and not exercising was the BIG
medical issue all along, JUST FOR ME
While, I loved my body, I loved food more. But, it was an unhealthy relationship. This week I found out that even having trigger foods in the house will throw me off tract as well as getting too stressed by others problems. For someone that is motivated to check their own stats, having a glucose meter and blood pressure cuff available to check my own stats in the mornings, has helped me
a bunch. I paid next to nothing for them. But, they do not
take the place of seeing my doctor often. These extra tools
keep me super motivated to keep going. I guess its a real learning curve.
I think I'm gonna keep saving my life
with what IS
working for me. No matter what might work for others. Just saying!
