First, let me do an update about my day yesterday. I did GOOD!!
I stayed within my WW points, I drank all my water and I exercised for 30 minutes. I need to step up my exercise program but I am nursing a hurt foot so that will come with time.
I took my Alli pills and so far no side effects (knock on wood:) So I am hoping that today will be just as good as yesterday.
Now for todays topic... Recently I have been thinking about my family and the hereditary things that may be passed down to me. Let me tell you- its NOT good news! Here's a breakdown:
Diabetes: Mother, Aunt, Maternal Grandfather
Cancer: Brother, Paternal Grandfather
Heart Problems: Father, Maternal Grandmother
Kidney Problems: Maternal Grandmother (she is on dialysis)
Memory Loss: Paternal Grandmother
Obesity: Very common on BOTH sides of the family!
Wow! when you actually write it down its even more scary than just thinking about it. I have terrible genes being passed to me from both sides. Right now I am healthy but I know that if I dont change my eating habits and lose the weight NOW that I will most likely inherit several of these things. SCARY!!
So there is something to think about... what can be passed down to you??
Yesterday I forgot to post my statistics so here they are and let me tell you- this takes ALL of my courage to post these on here but here we go (gasp)
Start Weight- 170 lbs
Goal Weight- 145 lbs
Now on with the day!! -Krista
