I took the day off from work yesterday because I had two doctor appointments. It had been 2 1/2 years since I've had a physical.
My doctor is a triathlete, and while she is a very kind and empathic person, I was just too embarrassed to go back while I was knowingly and willingly abusing my health.
The funny part is that while I've lost 25 pounds, according to her records I'm only down 8. So in that 2 1/2 years I continued to gain another 17 pounds before I finally said "enough is enough."
Well, all water under the bridge. I'm on the right track now and she was pleased with the changes I've made.
I did a pretty good job yesterday with WarrVests -- Drank the water, no alchohol, Read my cards & listened to a weight-loss podcast; recorded all my food. Took my vitamins, did 3 miles on the treadmill, ate only planned snacks, ate at the table, and tried to SLOW DOWN while I ate. Can use more work on that one.
I weigh 159 this morning. My goal is to keep doing what I'm doing, try to pick up the exercise a bit this week, and see what happens.
KEEP WORKING YOUR PLAN EVERYONE! I read on someone's blog that "Christmas is only one day, so there is no real reason to eat with abandon for 31 days!" How true is that!
