fell off track
Friday, September 20, 2013
I have had a really stressful summer. First my sister came to stay with me while she was trying to stop drinking. I told her I could not police her drinking this had to be her own decision. Well she offered to cook while she was here while I worked and she is from the south and as skinny as a bean pole. She is an excellent cook but she did not cook very healthy, she refused to use olive oil to cook in, and she fried almost everything I put my weight that I lost back on I didn't exercise like I should have, I would invite her to go for walks and she would refuse. She was here for 2.5 months and I am so depressed that I let myself put this unwanted weight back on. My sister went home and I told her before she left she needed to make an appointment to see her doctor and have her labs drawn. My sister is also a smoker which I am not. My sister called me and told me her HDL (good cholesterol is 29) way too low. She told me her triglycerides were 2589. I just about fell over, I told her she could have a heart attack or stroke and she needs to change her eating habits. My sister thought she was healthy because she is skinny but that totally proved her wrong, she is now on lipitor and fish oil capsules and needs to excerise terribly.
My cholesterol is looking great but I think that has to do with watching what I was eating prior to my sister's visit and my continuing to exercise and documenting what I was eating in Sparkpeople.
So today is the first day of the rest of my life and I am back even though I gained alot of my weight back. I am going to lost this excess weight if it kills me which it could if I keep putting weight on.
