Re: Eye opener
I am looking at getting th T25 workout video set. I have a few friends who have done it with great results. the nurses told me that diet and exercise are the only way to change these numbers. I did some small workouts yesterday, and did a brisk half hour walk this morning with some calisthenics before work. Checked the scale and am down 1.4#. Pretty bad to lose 1.4 pounds in one day by doing so low activitiy exercises and eating right. I will be increasing activity in the next week or so to get my body a bit more in shape before doing the T25 work out.
I was told that the excess fasts that don't get burned or stored end up flowing in your blood stream. My family has a terrible history of heart disease. I believe my mom had 3 heart attacks, and my uncle had 9. He was one of those that would not change his beer and cigarette life style though. I had an aunt who had a stroke in her 30
s who then passed away from cancer. My other uncle who is the oldest has had many surgeries on his heart and has had veins transferred throughout his body.
I am thankful that I had got the screening. I know I gained wait but had no clue my blood was full of junk or so to speak. This junk can harden the walls of your arteries and build up plaque. Given my families history I do not want to have issues when I am 35 so I have to act now. I am onl 26 and have this high of numbers. Hoping to drop down to 200 and keep it there, and make a routine of exercising every day that I can.
Having a 2 year old and one on the way really makes you realize how important your health is. So for now it will be diet and exercise. I plan to set smaller goals of 5-8 pounds a month to really keep things in check. If I do better than that so be it, but I always end up setting my self up to fail by setting too high of goals.
