Health

I know awhile back I wrote that I had my blood levels rechecked to see if they were improving. Well I'm not sure if I posted about it. I got two of the results back two weeks ago but had to wait for the last test to come in. I finally got the call with those results. The first two leptin and VEGF were both within normal range. I was so happy! Last time they were really out of whack, it was nice to know all the hard work I was doing was making positive changes in my body. I will say that the results for my c4a were quite discouraging though. They had gone up. I need it to go down. They went from 19,605 to 22,804. So NOT happy about that and freaking out a lot a little about it. But really what can I do? I feel so much better than I did before and have started to get lax on what I eat. I think I need to really restrict my eating again. I can tell that I don't feel as well as I did when I was eating really healthy. It just really stinks to eat like that ALL. THE. TIME. Parties and get togethers are really tough to be at because I have a really bad sweet tooth. And there is ALWAYS sweets. This coming weekend we have 3 birthday parties. What am I going to do?! I need lots of prayers for strength and to avoid temptation in this area. I am so weak. I did talk to my friend Andrea and she is going to ask a friend who knows more about that test for some advice. I eagerly wait to see what she recommends.

I so need to do better with my eating habits. They are off the charts. There are days when I do really well and there there are days (most of the time) when I eat like crap and I have very little will power. Oye vey!

Wow, you've done a much better job of keeping up with your blog than me! Life just gets so busy- it's hard to keep up, and I'm sure you understand!
I will pray for you to overcome your temptation to eat sweets at all the parties you have coming up! I know how it can be. I'm always struggling with the back and forth of eating well, and eating conveniently...
Glad to hear your first few tests came back normal!

I'm so sorry, Tonya! I really struggle with eating healthy, too. Hopefully your friend's friend can give you some insight on the test.
