What a Monday!
Monday, February 25, 2013
Well, it isn't weigh in day, but I weigh everyday and the scale has slowly been going down. Today's weight is 199!! Woo Hoo!! Now if I can keep that weight for two days it will be official on weigh in day!!! I am way more than excited. Can you tell?? I have been waiting for this day for 2 years. My ah ha moment of going to the doctor and getting told I was pre-diabetic, had high triglycerides and not good LDL or HDL numbers is behind me.
But it won't be forgotten.
I need to keep up the exercise of choice, which is now walking not water aerobics and I also need to keep eating well.
A banana in the morning with my lactose free milk or soy milk will get me through until my morning snack.
helps me remain pain free and less hungry. Sound funny?? Not at all. Our bodies need to rest and recuperate to keep going. Sleep is the only way to do that. When I get 7-9 hours of sleep I do well. Any less than 7 and I am hungry all day and I hurt.
My knees are doing better and better each day. My back is even doing better. I can keep my apartment clean better. I vacuum a couple times a week. Last fall I couldn't even vacuum, because it hurt my back so bad!! My friends or the missionaries from church would vacuum for me. I like to vacuum my own apartment, because I know I do a good job. No offense to those who have helped me in the past, but my vacuum doesn't pick up very well and you have to go over the same spot a couple times. Now I can do that!!
I feel like I could conquer the world today!! No, my friends that know about my mental illness, I am not manic!! I am happy. I feel good. I feel like nothing can hold me back from accomplishing my weight loss of over 100 pounds. Yes it has taken me longer than a year. 2012 was pretty much a wash. I didn't lose much at all. I didn't exercise much at all. But I did eat well. 2012 is behind me!!
Look out world! Here I come!
