Hold the Fat Please

I was told that I had not blogged in like five weeks so here we go.

A week ago, I went and had blood work done. I had to drink the dreaded glucose yuck!! I found out when you have this do and you are not pregnant you get the pleasure of drinking twice as much. Oh, joy! The reason the doctor thought I needed to have this test is I have been having some crazy symptoms i.e. moodiness, fatigue, and unable to loose weight. I am a fat bitch. Turns out I have Insulin Resistance. That means that my body makes too much insulin, which could be causing my symptoms. How do you treat it? You loose weight. Therefore, I am going to jump on the bandwagon with my crazy brother and go on his fruit, vegetables, and beans (with no salt) only diet. He has been on it since February and has lost 30 pounds. My goal is to lose 60 pounds. I plan to document my progress on a separate blog if any one is interested. I may even put up a before picture. I think this is going to be a lifestyle change that is going to take awhile for me to get used to, but it is something I really want to do for my daughter and myself. I am sure my husband will like it too. So, if you come to my houses for dinner bring a head of lettuce and toilet paper. I have a feeling the need for toilet paper in this house is about to skyrocket.
