So… It’s been a while since I’ve updated. I’ve been dreading writing this post because I know I’ve let down so many people. Since my Nutrisystem update I have dealt with not only a sick baby but a sick husband. You would think my husband would have gotten better now but that is not the case. My husband hasn’t been getting better. What was thought of to be was the “flu” has turned into an everyday occurrence of ankle swelling, exhaustion, and not being able to focus.
I’ve been waiting to post until we received my husband’s test results back. We got blood work results back on Friday. There’s something wrong with his heart. We don’t know the extent yet other than his blood work showed a result 20 times higher than a normal person for this particular test. It’s a protein that shows up when the heart is currently being damaged. This can be a precursor to a heart attack or heart failure. His good cholesterol is also severely low. My husband has an EKG & Chest X-ray this week and then he’ll be scheduled to see a cardiologist.
I did drop the ball on my own weight loss for the last month. I didn’t feel right with my commitment to the Nutrisystem Nation program while we figured out what is wrong with my husband. So I am stepping down from the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger program so I can do a heart healthy diet with my husband. My friends at Nutrisystem understood and provided me one last month of Nutrisystem as a gift. I am still very thankful for the program. I think Nutrisystem works. It has worked for me. I’m still going to recommend it to everyone I know. I’ve learned a lot of WHAT foods I need to eat. I will be taking this knowledge with me as I continue.
This isn’t the end of my journey. Once we find out more from my husband’s cardiologist I will have a better idea of what diet my husband needs to be eating in order to keep him alive. I don’t plan on being a widow. I want to help him eat healthier. I do hope those who were here for my Nutrisystem journey will stick around for my weight loss journey.
Be on the look out for a giveaway going live later on this week for a free week’s worth of Nutrisystem food.
