Another Journey Begins

I have another journey to embark upon.  It is probably my most important journey of all.  It's the journey to good health.

I'm 46, almost 47 years old.  I am, like a lot of people, overweight.  I'm 5'4" tall and weight 181 pounds.  If that's not bad enough I am also diabetic, have high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.  My doctor sent my lab results in the mail and the sentence that was typed really caught my attention.  It said, "Diabetes is not well controlled.  Patient has been noncompliant with her diabetes regimen but committed to being compliant which should improve her control."  Hmmm, yes, that was me. 

So, the journey to health begins.
This is me now.  I hope, no - I WILL lose weight and get the diabetes under control.  I want to teach my son to be healthy and to be active and to do that I have to set an example.

Another thing is the doctor found thickening in my breast tissue.  She is scheduling a mammogram and we will go from there. 

Lots to do but I'm up to it!
