Everyone is always on some kind of fitness, get healthy journey. Right? It's not always about losing weight just to fit into that size 2 pair of jeans, but it goes a lot deeper than that. For me, as hard as it is to admit, but I've always been the curvy Asian girl and I have been criticized since I was a kid by my parents and I still do, taunted by other kids because my chest grew way quicker than the kids my age. Whoa, emotional moment. In honestly, it has damaged my self-confidence and self-esteem more than you'll ever know and it's still a battle. After I got married, I gained even more weight because I couldn't cook, didn't really know how to cook and they had all this fast food I've never seen... darn you Sonic and Chickfila!
Earlier this year, I found out I'm Type-2 Diabetic and at the time I also had high-blood pressure so I immediately cut down on sugar and salt for about awhile and within a couple days, I lost 5 pounds! Since then I've been teetering around that 5lbs and having a hard time to get over another 5lbs, but I am so proud to announce my a1c (blood sugar) test came back at 5.8 last month! I'm not too sure what my original score was, but I'm pretty sure it was really high around 8 or 9 and after seven months and taking Metformin, I'm now at about a 5.8! It's a huge accomplishment and I also really glad that my TC/LDL is good, but my HDL needs to be higher.
I'm starting to ramble, so, on with the show!
