So I haven't been well for a little while. Nothing exciting, just niggly stuff that is more annoying than anything else. Anyhow, I was back at the doctors the other week and ended up having to go and have my blood work done.
I got a call and had to go in too see the nurse practitioner. It turns out I am on the verge of being diabetic unless I do something. I have two choices, I either lose weight and exercise or they will put me on medication for diabetes.
So I have decided I will go with the changing the way I eat and take up walking again. I have until the end of August to lose some weight and get my numbers down before I see the nurse practitioner in September. I have to have my blood work re-done at the end of August.
We are going to see a dietitian and someone who will educate us on diabetes. I am saying we in this, as I figure there is a good chance if I am on the verge of being diabetic is, dh will be as well.
So wish us luck. I have been watching what I eat since Tuesday and have managed to walk over 10,000 steps everyday since.
