Ok, so the Healthy eating is paying off.
Hubby had his 3 month follow up and the doctor is like WOW! I mean a BIG WOW! She (Yes, my hubbys doctor is a woman) is like not very many of my other veterans listen to what I tell them. Bells and Whistles and SIRINs are going off in my head because we personally know people just like that They are sick, they go to the doctor, the doctor tells them THIS is what you need to do, and do they listen? Hell NO. they just keep doing what ever they feel like and continue to be sick. Then they want to know WHY? I can tell them BECAUSE you are totally stupid.
When hubby went to the doctor 3 short months ago and the doctor called him when we were driving back home and the doctor says.... You have High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and High blood Sugar (border line diabetes). I say either you had it or you don't. I said you have it, deal with it or not. Choice is yours. I am not going to brow beat my hubby to do what he knows he has to do. A little history here... 1st his dad died at the age of 69 from complications of diabetes, 2nd his sister had a mini stroke as a result of diabetes, did she heed the warnings? BINGO you guessed it, NOPE, she is now on a transplant list because both kidneys are failing. WAIT not done yet... 3rd his youngest brother has also has SEVERAL mini strokes from diabetes and has he done what the doctor has told him.... again a BIG NO. What is wrong with this picture? Reminds me of that joke about the drowning man, who dies and gets to heaven and asks God why he didn't save him and God tells him he sent a raft, a boat and a helicopter but he didn't listen?
Well here is the doctors BIG WOW moment..... Hubby has lost 22 lbs. He went from a size 3X shirt to a X-LG. He went from a size 44 waist to a 38 and we have to shop again because he can fit into a 36. WOOHOOO he is looking all slim. His blood sugar is down to normal range and the blood pressure went from 180/90 to 130/62. I need to call and get his cholesterol level but doctor said she is more than sure it is also in the normal range. She wants to keep him on the medications for the next 4 months and then see where he is at. He only has 18 more lbs to lose. Then we will be in maintaining mode.
So you can see if you just listen to the doctors advice, like start eating healthier and stay away from Cokes, Candy and Desserts, less fried foods you would and could improve your health right away.
PS..... I ate the same things I was preparing for my hubby and I lost 25 lbs. TIP: Guess what I found that is soooo DELISH......... Skinny Cow ice cream cones and Jello Sugar free pudding. Neither taste like sugar free and are sooooooooo YUMMY
