The last post I made to this blog was in June of 2012. This was the last time that I really invested time into taking care of myself.
Since then, I’ve backslid in the biggest of ways–not really paying attention to what I ate, how much I ate, or how much I moved. As a result I’ve gained back over half the weight I lost when I set out upon the latest of weight loss journeys that my adult life has been consumed with.
In January, I had a 6-month checkup with my primary care physician. Because I am diabetic, I must go in every 6 months and have my a1c, cholesterol, triglycerides and other things checked. I knew before I went in to do the lab work that the results would be dismal; I was just waiting for her to say them to my face.
