Lately I've been looking in the mirror and seeing my mother...
I love my mother dearly but I don't want to turn into her. She has a multitude of ailments and most can be directly attributed to her obesity. I'm afraid that I am following in her footsteps.
I went to the doctor today for a post-surgical checkup and he sternly informed me that I'd gained 4 lbs (in the last 3 months), and that he thought that instead of being pre-diabetic I was now a full-fledged diabetic. He sent me for some bloodwork so the diabetes diagnosis is not confirmed, but I know that it's lurking around the corner, along w/ high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Frankly, it scared the heck out of me!!
I know what I need to do, but I just can't seem to stick to it. I've been half-heartedly watching what I eat, but I need to be more conscious of it. I also need to find time to get moving, even if it's just going for a 20 minute walk. I promised myself, and my dad, that when I get home today, that's exactly what I'm going to do... I'm hoping that writing my thoughts down will make me more accountable.
