Starting Over Again
Thursday, July 31, 2014
I joined SparkPeople in the summer of 2010, and when I stuck with the program I lost 35 pounds. Unfortunately, I fell off the path several times. I kept saying that I would commit myself and "do better this time around," and I usually I would do well for a while. But, it seems that every time I would lose weight, somehow I would end up gaining more in the end.
I was diagnosed with diabetes in March of 2014, and it's been tough the last few months. Nothing seems to be helping me regulate my sugar, and I'm afraid I will be on insulin sometime in the near future. While I haven't been extremely careful with what I've been eating, I haven't been horrible either. So, I started to do some thinking.
I have done some research on weight loss surgery, and I have come to the conclusion that I will be working towards the gastric sleeve surgery. I believe (and so do my doctors!) that I am an excellent candidate for the surgery and hope that I will be able to reach my weight loss goals for the first time in my life. I also hope that will be a solution to my diabetes.
So, here I am again, trying to reach my goals pertaining to the weight loss surgery that I will hopefully be undergoing in the next few months.
