I was watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, it was on Friday night, but I didn't get a chance to watch it that night. Well I watched it today, and it was great, I will for sure keep watching it.
It opened up my eyes a lot, and I learned quite a bit from it. There was a family on there and the son had a mark on his neck, and the Dr. automatically thought Diabetes. They did the blood test, and he didn't have it yet, but they told him that he would. Well I just happen to have a large mark on the back of my neck, I have had it there for maybe 6 months, I remember freaking out when I found it. I googled it a little, and it said something about high insulin, but I forgot about it, and though it's ugly and I try to cover it I never thought about it again, until I watched this.
I'm really scared to go to the doctor, mainly because I feel like I'm going to be told that there is something wrong with me, and I know that I did this to myself. I don't want to feel judged for putting my own health at stake. I know I need to go, but it might take me awhile to make myself go :(
Too be completely honest, up until this point...the want for weight loss has been vain, I have just wanted to look better in clothes, find myself prettier etc. I know now though that it's not about my looks, it's about my health. My BMI is 38.7, I'm so close to morbid obesity it's not funny. I need to make this happen, I lack motivation a lot, so I'm going to need as much of it as I can get...but I have to do this!
