Hi Everybody~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thought I'd start this blog with a little HALLOWEEN LOVE~ emoticon. Does anybody else thing Dracula and The Wicked Witch have a Little Romance Going on???? Chuckling..... emoticon emoticon

Welllll.......my spark pics need to be updated so badly. The most recent one of me is on my last blog, but as you all will notice if you check it is only a head and shoulder shot....lol.....yeahhhh there are reasons for that~ emoticon emoticon emoticon. My Doctor is a good man. He knows how much my weight gain since my accident in early June of 2010 bothers me beyond articulation. Bless his pea pickin heart, he asked me if I'd like to have a nutritionist. Wellllll OF COURSE I WOULD!!! The best part being, dr. ordered our insurance will cover this. Hoorayyyyyyy!!! COUNT ME IN~WERE MY WORDS TO HIM~yesss with tears in my eyes, because I was a weight loss coach. I know what to do, and how to do it, but being accountable to somebody, may be the best thing in the world for me right now. emoticon

Today I went through a three hour fasting glucose blood test, checking me for hypoglycemia. If they tell me I have this, a bit of fear will kick in, as I know that within five years this could flip and become diabetes~easily. Generally speaking thus would be the case. I am my Father's child through and through, but diabetes I have soooo been trying to AVOID!

Sooooo.....I GUESS I AM GOING TO HAVE A NUTRITIONIST. Tis a good thing. No tis a GREAT THING! Everything about life has been changed since my accident, including the inability to exercise....still....even a year and half into physical therapy. Therefore I shall not hang my head in shame, that I was a weight loss coach, as it was a time in my life that I was able to help so many others, and now it's okay and truly a blessing that there is somebody who will be willing to help me.

That my dear spark family is an update, about where I am in life right now. Just as Miss America Hands her crown on down, I too shall do the same with "has been title," where weight loss coach is concerned. With dignity and poise, as well as hope in my heart, that the pics on my spark page will not be has been photos of me forever~ emoticon emoticon

Angel Blessings To Allllll~

    Diane, yes you can lose weight without exercising like you used to.

    You just have to work with what you have and let precious Holy Spirit lead you according to what you are able to do.

    What a gift from heaven isn't it? This new nutrionist already paid for, wow, you can and will move mountains, mountains of weight.

    You can and will do this. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Awww Diane.....I can't imagine trying to control my weight without exercise. It's tough enough when you can exercise. Just think of all the knowledge you possess where weight is concerned.....there is no reason not to continue to coach others.

    You have had one heck of a setback where your health is concerned, we all understand that here. Please keep sharing everything you've learned and will continue to learn with a nutritionist!

    I looked back at the blog where you posted an updated pic......you look terrific!

    YEAH!! You have a fantastic doctor there, Di - a big pat on the back to *both* of you! How could he fail to see a great deal of promise in you with your background as a weight loss coach? WOW!! That nutritionist will help you fine-tune what you eat so that you can minimize - if not completely eradicate - that inherited risk of type 2 diabetes. My mom had it, too...but I'm not at risk at this point, thanks to the dramatic retooling of my eating choices, recommended by my internist when he saw my high triglycerides (!) and other crappy blood work :) When I developed a problem unrelated to weight gain or loss (hyponatremia), I decided to see the registered dietitian at my nephrologist's practice. We only had to meet once, but I needed her help for finding *palatable* high-sodium food choices (really! I have to eat 8 grams of sodium a day - ugh! :). Just by suggesting high-sodium soy sauce, she helped me tremendously. I now make a little Asian-style dressing for some of my fresh veggies, and all...that...salt got a whole lot easier :) So anxious to hear how it goes for you! emoticon

    Isn't it wonderful to have a doc that cares? I'm glad you can be helped and supported when it comes to your eating. I know how it feels to wake up one morning and find that over the past few months you have forgotten how you did it in the first place and feeling lost. I'm too trying to find my way back, while fighting obstacles round every corner.

    Take advantage of your Nutritionists knowledge at every opportunity.

    Good to see you here - I have missed you.

    Oh, and I too have thought about taking off all the has been photo's from my blog ...

    That is good news, D! I've often wondered why insurance doesn't cover nutritionists??? Don't they know Americans are getting fatter???

    Having someone by your side that knows what you should be doing can really help. I'm on this journey alone except for my Sparkfriends; most of my friends and relatives think I'm already tiny. So I envy this pleasant surprise.

    Let us know how it goes!
