I'm not one to make resolutions....I sussed out some time ago that I can never stick to them....which is odd because I do have the capacity to achieve stuff if I put my mind to it!
Sooooo......I'm going to have to put my mind to something pretty huge
.....something that was and still is a bolt from the blue
........something that I cannot believe
....something that I'll have to believe because I've been told it's true!!!
Dear oh lor! Where the heck did that come from!!!
I feel a fraud at the moment and really it's hard to sink in as I don't feel ill at all.....in fact in the past 6 or 8 weeks I've felt the best for some time!
If it had not been for the fact I returned to the opticians to question the fact that my new distance glasses (only had at the beginning of August) were actually now making things less clear I still would not know as.....I'll repeat it again.....I don't feel ill!!!
The optician wanted me to book a blood sugar test at the doc's just to rule it out as he also said the stress of my bereavement could have caused the change.
So it turns out I'm diabetic (Type 2).....I'm lucky.....it's been detected quite early (the only classic sign I have is this fluctuating eyesight thing) and with diet, a daily pill (only one at the moment to see how it goes), more exercise and loosing weight it should be easily controllable!!!
So they say :)
I've already lost quite a bit of weight since Pip died.
....I don't know how much healthier I can make my diet as reading the guide lines I'm spookily already eating the right sort of stuff.....but if I have to start eating the amount of stuff recommended I know for sure I will put weight on!!
It's always been difficult to keep my weight off and I know just how little I need to eat in order to loose weight....but hey! The bright flip side of taking the pills is that apparently they will help me to do just that!
Why could I not have had them for the past 30 years?!!! HOL
So don't worry about me.......I'm certainly not worried.
It is what it is.
I'll probably know a bit more when I get to see the dietitian at the hospital...oh and I've got to have the back of my eyeballs photographed!!!
Some pin up shot that will be! LOL
