Spring Challenge in Review
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
This one was I think the hardest. I am finishing weighing more than when it started. That is the bad news. I have struggled with my eating somewhat during this 10 weeks. I started insulin. I have been adjusting to that and learning to eat while my body is reacting to the addition of insulin shots. My doctor told me that I might have lost some of the weight because my body could not process all of the sugar so I might gain weight back to the last weight he had. I am grateful I am not back to that number. I am still sad that it is creeping up. But, I am recommitting to eating better. As the weather was bad, and there was some schedule problems with my youngest I have not exercised as much as I used to some of the weeks.
On the plus side I am not pretty much adjusted and I am feeling better. I am learning that I do not have to give into cravings therefore having fewer highs and lows in my blood sugar.
I am sad that I did not lose weight. I am grateful for the team support. I hope to do better next challenge. I will have an easier time because the weather will be better and I will be able to eat better when the vegetables are plentiful.
I made progress on my interim goals but they were bigger than I realized and I did not finish all the challenges. But, I did challenge myself and have made good progress towards creating more order in my home.
I intend to plan my meals better. I intend to be more committed in exercise. I plan to eat more in line with South Beach and keep reminding myself that I feel better when I eat that way.
