The holidays have come and gone but what about your resolve that this would be the year you’d achieve your health goals. You want to, of course – but it all seems so overwhelming. Perhaps the weight has crept up over the years – and with it higher blood sugar, blood pressure and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, too. I know. I was “there” this time last year.
If I was honest with myself (which I wasn’t!), last New Years I was 60 pounds overweight. It had been far too long since I had taken my blood sugar and I was already Diabetic and the last time I had lab work done two years earlier, my ‘bad’ cholesterol was already higher than it should be. I was in denial. Reality was, I was an overweight, unwell Dietitian.
It took two of my girlfriends dying within months of each other – both of preventable, natural causes, for me to seriously consider “doing something”. But when?
March 5, 2017 I didn’t feel very well and decided to take my blood pressure. It was dangerously high. That was the day that “one day” became “day one“. That was the day I overcame my own resistance to change – when the pain of remaining the same was greater than the pain of changing.
It is 10 months later and much has changed for me. While I am only half way to my goal weight, my blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides are well within normal range, with some in the ‘ideal’ range. It isn’t a “quick fix”, but it is a “lasting fix” and it is entirely sustainable over the long term.
After two and a half years teaching my clients the “how-to’s” of a low carb lifestyle, I finally had become my own client. I eat the way I’ve taught others to do since 2015 -practicing what I preach, and loving how I feel.
