One of my major goals for this year is to lose some weight. I don’t say get into shape, because that takes a lot of work. I just want to drop some weight, and if I gain muscle along the way so be it. (Next years goal is to muscle up.)
I was diagnosed a few weeks ago as “pre-diabetic” which to me you either are or your aren’t. So I am trying my hardest to make it so I DON’T have it. I never really realized how many carbs I eat. And I think that is my problem. I am addicted to carbs. I will eat them in any way, shape, or form (within reason of course). I was a vegetarian for 4 years, so this just fueled it. It was my excuse to just eat all the carbs and junk I wanted. And when I say junk, I mean I ate pasta a good 6 days a week. Sometimes twice a day. Its not wonder that I’ve ballooned up way past what I even feel comfortable talking about.
My doc, who is freaking awesome, put me on Metaformin. Side effects… fertility. I think it could be the best side effect ever. Coming from someone who tried for 2 1/2 years in vain to get pregnant. Even Fertility drugs didn’t work on me. It is by the grace of God that I have a beautiful daughter. If I ever tell you about that, which I may, you will agree.
Okay so besides the awesome side effect. Are some not so fun ones that I dare not mention. You can google it if you’d like, but I don’t feel right typing or copy and pasting those words. Gross.
So I guess what this blog really is all about it accountablity. I really need some people.. even if its strangers.. checking in on me. As of July 1st my carb intake will be close to zero. I know I will need reminders to stay positive and remember that its for my health. Stop being so crabby and live your life. That is what I should be reminded of, on a daily basis.
IG mommies that read this.. PLEASE feel free to hold me to this. I do not mind. (that means you too Erinn. MUAH!) Here goes nothin’! Wish me luck!
