I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMENI went to the Doctor on Monday this week for results of blood work and blood pressure/weight check. I was not feeling well and when she listened to me breath, she ordered a breathing treatment and chest x-ray. She told me I had bronchitis and gave me my treatment plan. First of all, I love my female doctor. She really takes her job to heart. She spends a lot of time with each patient. She told me all my tests were perfect, including a perfect mamogram. I had maintained my weight from my last visit 8 weeks ago, which she was puzzled by. I am suppose to be losing. After looking at my food journal, she told me what I need to cut out of my diet and see if that helps. Too many carbs! She told me to rest and not go to work the next day.
Well, this was a blessing in a way cause during the day off it was like a lightbulb being turned on in my head. I had time to relax and reflect.
I will make better food choices, I will get healthy, I will not get diabetes, I will not have knee problems, I will not have high blood pressure.
I need a group setting exercise program, I need people motivating me. After years of praying that one day I will start back on the road to a better me, IT CLICKED in my brain.
I decided to join Curves. I use to be a member 5 years ago but I let other things get in the way and didn't stick with it. They have a whole new program called Curves Smart and at my work out last night I know I made the right choice for me. I have a personal trainer until I am comfortable with the machines. It is the type of workout I can handle. They encourage you to go at least 3 times a week. I am so pumped up and excited to start back on this weight loss journey, I feel like I am bubbling over. My mind is clear and I have a goal. I am not a failure. I am going to start taking care of ME. Stay tuned!
