Weighed in on Monday and saw no change in my weight which was only slightly discouraging. My weight may not have changed but I've noticed that my body is changing slightly - like I'm starting to get more toned in certain areas.
Went to the Dr. to find out the results of my tests and found out *drum roll please*........I'm 100% healthy!
Everything is fine - sugar levels are normal, kidney and liver functions are fine, I exhibit no signs of anemia. Everything is fine!
My symptoms may have been a result from stress and/or my not getting enough iron/ protein.
My Dr. just suggested that I include a multi-vitamin a day and continue to diet and exercise. I have to go back in three months for my regular checkup.
Can I brag a little and say that I'm rather proud of myself for insisting on all these tests, especially the one for diabetes. This entire process has been incredibly terrifying and I am so relieved to get a clean bill of health. The old me would never have even admitted that there was a problem so I have really come a long way from there.
Believe me, I'm going to do everything in my power to prevent any illness. Week to week I tend to get so frustrated when my weight doesn't change but I haven't been looking at how much it has benefited my health in the long run.
So far this week three different people have commented my weight loss, that gave me a little boost!
I really need to give myself a break at times and let everything come what may - it may take forever but it will happen!
