In tears right now... What a message.

So I was just watching an episode of the doctors and stumbling on the web reading a story of a man who also had developed type 2 diabetes and reading that the average life span of a diabetic is only about 20 years. That struck a chord with me as I read it.... 20 years... That would make me only 48. Possibly blind, missing toes, heart attack, kidney failure, stroke, ALL by 48! That means I wont be able to see my children have children, or possibly see them get married!

I have heard it all before but heres what really got me: On the Doctors, there was a man who wouldnt stop smoking and he had issues that put him at even higher risk for an early grave.

His family recorded a short movie called "Life after Jack" showing interviews of what they missed about their dad/husband/brother. I immediately was filled with thoughts of my family without me, what would they say, what would I miss, would I be missed, how could I knowingly leave them early to fend the world on their own!

It took seconds for me to be in tears. I really dont have any excuse but selfishness for why I dont take better care of myself!

I feel horrible about where I have let myself get to but the good news is that I am only 28 and not 48 and still have time to fix it.

I can see myself as a happy, healthy, active mom/wife/daughter. I honestly have to make a life change. I must be more active. I must make healthy food choices to fuel a healthy happy body.

I am so very ready and will never be perfect but will work to be a good example.

why did I look?

So I have been trying to weigh on fridays just to keep from obsessing over the scale and the number. I want to concentrate less on that stuff and more on being healthy and letting the weight take care of itself along the way.

Now Sundays we always go visit my dad and have dinner. So knowing that each Sunday we end up having a horrible dinner either Abby's Pizza or some high calorie fat laden dinner at their house you would think I could prepare better and make sure I dont go overboard.

Its just horrible that Pizza is such a trigger food for me. I eat one piece... Okay doing good but then I mindlessly grab piece two and then three and coat them with waaayyyy too much ranch dressing. Now I could enjoy it without the ranch but do I? NOOOooooo.... Why would I do that?

Its okay, its done and today the scale is up 2 1/2 lbs... Its only tuesday and Im gonna work at getting those extra pounds off but grrrr...

Hopefully I learn my lesson eventually so I dont keep doing the two steps forward one step back dance.

On a more positive note, I am loving the way I feel when I eat well! I really have missed that feeling of my body regeneration happening and feeling clean and healthy.

The next step is to start walking 3-4 times a week. I really need to start moving more!

Today I have done well. Got some Kale and potatoes in me and I feel fantastic about feeding my body good stuff :) I need some water though. I have got to start drinking more water and less diet soda!
