Good Morning friendly people!
Got to change my "I've Lost" image from 30pounds to 40pounds this morning, kind of like getting your yellow belt in karate...I was excited to see that number get bigger. Weighed-in this morning and dropped 4 pounds since just this past Monday, so 9 pounds since last Friday the 23rd and so far overall total weight loss since Sept. 18th is 41
I feel much more ok with this being a long and hopefully successful journey than I did for the first month, my thinking is changing and can tell that my attitude toward all of this change is not so smothered with fear and negativity...a little more hope and faith each day!
My blood sugar/glucose really got dialed in this week, lowest consistent numbers ever...last 4 days: 142, 136, 142 & 139 today. So I'm really stoked about that too.
Had a really nice lunch yesterday at our apartment with my mom, and it was nice to talk about all these changes with her as I ate my vegetarian chik pattie.
With the big calorie reduction this past week though, I've been feeling really tired by the end of the day- just noticing too that maybe my body is getting adjusted to not having really any carbs after lunch...I don't necessarily think or feel like I was craving carbs, but I could feel my body shifting and it was a little weird..but whatever. I keep telling myself everytime I see or notice something about myself that I don't like or something that concerns me, that if I just stick to my plan of eating right for me, exercising the best that I can regularly, get lots of rest if possible and drink a ton of water everyday and try to have more fun...that everything, absolutely everything will change.
I just want to share quick that sometimes in the past(not so distant) when business was slow or things were just tight I would daydream or fantasize "what if we won the super lotto?" and brainstorm all of these cool things we could do to help people and what it would be like to not be so stressed out all the time...well, to myself lately the big dream that keeps firing inside me is just to be able to go on a trip somewhere with my wife like we used to, get out of the house and just go - no concerns about if I can make it, or be comfortable....everytime I walk each day I can feel myself getting more and comfortable and confident on me feet, so I know it's going to take some time...but that's where I'm headed - freedom, I really want the freedom.
I hope everyone has a smooth friday!
