Before I get to the blood work results....
A couple weeks ago I was telling you in my blog how I got Fat Shamed by a co-worker. I am the first to tell you I have let myself go over the last year. As I am getting older I have lost the drive to be healthy. The incident with my co worker isn't the sole reason why I am choosing to change my lifestyle around, It's for my family. Coming into the new year I knew it was time for a change.
Over the past three weeks I have been getting up 6 days a week and doing 45 minutes of cardio. I have a shake for breakfast and eat a sensible meal at night. While I don't see the results yet, I feel great! My mind is giving me the motivation I need to succeed.
This week I had to get some blood work done. Before the doctor could intervene with the results i was able to access them on my healthcare website. As I was trying to make sense of the results I did notice some of the results were out of range and high. It also said they were waiting on one more test for diabetes. This is an eye opener for me because I have never had to worry about being so unhealthy that I would need to be concerned about diabetes. This morning I got the results from that test. I am happy to say the test came back negative for diabetes(picture below). What a relief. I do want to say that this does not mean I am in a good place with my health. I have work to do and will continue to focus on my goal of losing 20-25 lbs.
Thank you for all your support and advice! it's making a difference in my journey!
