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.

    Weighing more at the end of a challenge is always rough. You did a great job putting it all in perspective though. You went through a lot and you've been trying to get used to some new ways of living. You stuck with it through all that and you are looking forward to a new opportunity. That is all AWESOME. Exercise, eating right and keeping your insulin levels even will all work towards your good in the long run. You are doing awesome even if the scale doesn't agree right now.
