Feeling good about my weight.

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I had my last Diabetes Prevention Program class on Monday. I didn't hit the goal I set for Monday, but I am still losing and better yet...I have maintained my loss for over 6 months!! WooHoo!! That is progress for me! emoticon

I got mono vision contacts today. Last week I tried multi-focal and I only wore them one day. I really didn't like them. I couldn't see up close at all. So today they gave me another trial pair. One eye, my dominate eye, is my eye to see far with and the left eye, sees up close. I really like them. Better yet, I can wear them for a week at a time. No more grabbing for glasses in the morning or losing them under the bed!! Snickers often knocks them off the head board or I do in the morning. My head board is a book shelf and very hard to get underneath!! I think I will like these contacts!! emoticon

I ate at a chinese restaurant yesterday with a friend. We had the all you can eat buffet. I know I went over my calories and fat, but I watched really close the rest of the day. This morning I weighed the same as yesterday! And I didn't exercise yesterday. I know...nothing to brag about, but I was making a point about not gaining any weight!! emoticon And as usual, I did have a high intake of good old water throughout the day!

I did some Wii Bowling today. I am now a Pro on my Wii Bowling!! I even got 4 strikes in a row. I was waiting for that to happen....because I didn't know what that was called. It is called a Fourth. Too simple if you ask me!! emoticon No bowling icon...had to put something!!

I haven't been blogging everyday. I just had to step back. I have still been coming on Spark People everyday, just didn't have a lot to say. October is a hard month for me. Maybe I will do better in November!!

So, I got a new cookbook from my DPP class. It has some good low-fat, low-calorie recipes in it. I didn't find anything I wanted to make right away, but when I went grocery shopping last week...I got some ingredients for some recipes in my Spark People Cookbook. I think this weekend I will try something from there.

emoticon I got some romaine lettuce, emoticon, emoticon, emoticon and some low-fat ranch dressing at the store. I have been making some killer salads for snacks, lunches and dinners. I want to make some homemade soup to have handy, too. The kind you can get in the store has so much sodium!! Even the low sodium soups. I am thinking of a "throw what you have in the refridge" soup. You know...you look in your refridge and see what is left over and throw it in the pot. Sometimes they can be really good. It is also a good way to get rid of left overs.

The snow we got the other day is almost all gone...except in spots that don't get much sun. My friends and family in Wisconsin haven't even gotten snow yet. It is November, so we were due to get some. It has been pretty nice the last 2 days...with lots of sunshine. emoticon

We have 2 Peer to Peer classes left. It is going really well. I myself have been struggling a bit with some of my symptoms. I am working on it and I feel like I can get through it, without too much of a relapse.

I hope you had a great day!! Remember...it is what you make it!

    I love to make the leftover soup. When I stayed with my mother several years ago after she had shoulder surgery, I cleaned out the fridge every Friday and threw all the leftovers in the soup pot. I think the best soup I made that time was when we had leftover spaghetti and sauce.

    I often use up the last of a roast to make soup, usually with lots of kinds of beans. It makes such a good nutritious, relatively low calorie meal.

    It's good that you made it through the diabetes classes. I think they inspire a lot of people.

    Good news on the contacts, I hope they work out well for you. I have never tried contacts, I think my astigmatism would be a problem.

    Way to go Angie! Grocery shopping is a whole new experience isn't it?
    Not gaining any weight is the best. I wouldn't worry about the Chinese meal, when I splurge on a weekend, it seems like I feel like I gain, but if I stay the same, it just encourages me and it does come off.

    Cool about your contacts! Not dealing with glasses would be nice!
