its OVER

Monday, August 18, 2008

ok... so, the wedding ive been helping to plan is over... all the "meetings for dinner", and wine and cheese tasting, and rehearsal lunch, and rehearsal dinner, and food food food, and alchol...... is OVER. dont get me wrong, the wedding was for my best freind, and it went off without a hitch, and it was a BLAST!..but, now... time to get serious. I went in for my "every 3 month" blood work on friday... and new id get the results today... i knew as soon as i saw them, id want to get RIGHT back on that horse agian!! and sure nuff!! my Triglycerides were higher, my cholestrol was higher, my sugar count... yup.. higher. they werent off the charts like they have been in the past, but they were higher than my last reading 3 months ago. After reading a few things about Triglycerides (refreshing my memory).... i learned a few NEW things, and remembered some old things... i have to remmber... 1. if you consume more than your alotted amount of calories, they store in your fat cells and THAT is what creats "triglyicerides"... there is a fine like between triglyicerides and cholesterol. 2. Also, a HUGE factor to Triglycerides is ALCHOL....(which i did NOT know)... i knew it was high in sugar, there for being a diabetic i should not have it, but i had no clue that its a BIG no-no for triglycerides. and 3. which i knew, but after reading refreshed my memory....stay awayyyyy from the white foods.... pasta, bread, rice..... thats a huge no-no also. and of course.. 4. to lose un-needed pounds, ... So, here i am, bound and determande to get my blood results down to a good number! i want off my medications... tired of spending all that money!!! WOW.... so..... look out December! Thats my next blood result test... and that is my mini goal for now. Not thinking so much "pounds" here...but, with watching all of the above, the pounds should come off too. thanks for reading!!! Love Von
