Reset moving forward and keep pushing!

Friday, August 28, 2020

The last 10 days have worked getting myself back on very low carb. Realized I'm addicted to sugar or anything that tastes like sugar. Have done better keeping away from sugar or things with sugar in them. Yes, that includes fruit Dr. Mark Hyman calls fruit candy. Which my brain sees it as sweet as sugar and sets off cravings. Maybe cause I have two brain disorders. My brain doctor has encouraged me also to do keto and no sweets or grains of any kind. I do feel like my brain is working much better. I have more energy. I still keep it very simple. It has a calming effect on me.

I am only a few pounds from my longterm goal of 150 pounds and a healthy BMI.

In 2007 I went to a doctor who measured my fat and muscle mass. An was told I should weight no more than 133 pounds or less. This will be my next long team goal after reaching 150 pounds. My short term goals are for a loss of 20 pounds over time and after reaching set for another 20 pounds loss. I have already reached one 20 pound loss for the year and only a few pounds from my next 20 pounds. I try hard not to get fixed on the numbers because in the past it has caused me to fail and stress out.

It is a push every day to get healthy. Eat right, get in my exercises, me time, a good night's sleep. A lot of forgiving myself. I have one amazing body that somehow keeps going when I was not treating it so well. Now eating the right foods for my body with my many health conditions. I'm seeing healing. I'm kind to my body it has taken me far. I need to start treating it better so it will continue to keep me going. I love this body! It is not perfect but to me it is beautiful. Love what you have. Do what right for you. Listen to your body it does tell you when it is not happy. Keep pushing!

    You are doing great - glad to hear that you understand what sugar does to the body - really does a number on the brain (as well as flour as I have shared with you before) You can be sugar free. I have no added sugar but with my food plan I am allowed 2 fruit a day - one at breakfast and one at lunch - have to weigh them to make sure I don't get more than 6 oz for each fruit. And surprising it doesnt make me crave more sweets but I am seeing the fog lifted from the brain and am thinking so much clearer - and health problems are improving. You can do it - keep me informed of your journey
