Quick update

I've been super busy lately, but I did want to take the time to update y'all on a couple of things.

Went to the doctor yesterday.
He is putting me on the South Beach diet and I need to go get blood work done next week to check my blood sugar for insulin resistance. He also wants me to start excercising 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening.

But my blood pressure is great- 105/80
And my Asthma is under control.
So those are both positives.

One thing he said bugged me, and I know he didn't mean it to come across the way it did so I'm trying to let it go. He said "loosing weight isn't as hard as people try to make it out to be." Obviously he has never had to battle a weight problem.

Work is busy busy busy right now. So I can't post as much as I would like, but I am still reading your blogs and still rooting for you all!


  1. Hurray for the blood pressure numbers!

    I can't believe you found a doc who would put you on the South Beach! Wow! If you start eating the south beach way and next week you get your sugar checked, you probably will have a good number. It's too bad he couldn't check the insulin resistance BEFORE putting on the SB diet.

    "Loosing weight isn's as hard as people try to make it out to be." HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa..

  2. I kiiiiinda want to kick him in the junk. Eesh. Congrats on the BP! :)

  3. The South Beach Diet is pretty easy to stick with - best of luck with it. For your morning and evening exercises I recommend a weighted hula-hoop. I just posted about it last week on my blog- you should check it out! Best of luck!
