Down 50! So happy!
Thursday, April 19, 2018
It's been a while since I wrote a blog. The scale has been up & down like a roller coaster. The good news is that I'm still hanging in their!
Where to begin. In December I had my AWA moment! Too bad it had to come to that point to make me realize how my weight is affecting my health in a negative way!
My blood work came back & my fasting blood sugar was 111. The doctor told me to lose weight or you will become diabetic! He also put me on diabetic medication. I took the pill for 6 weeks but had to go off for now because sugar was dropping to low. Going back to the doctor next month to see what happens. Anyway since December 6th I have lost a total of 51 lbs.!
I have been eating healthy & using the villes to lose the weight. I love the villes for losing weight. Even though these teams aren't very active they are like a weight loss journal for me. Plus the fact that when you have a large amount of weight to lose, losing it in 10 lb. increments is so doable. I get so excited when I have 1 lb. to go to move on down the road to the next ville. It gives me the incentive I need to keep going. Since December I had a couple of slip ups along the way(off track) but I hung in there. I love
inspirational quotes! They motivate me to keep going. This is one of my favorites:
When I enter "One"derland my next goal is to get into a regular routine when it comes to exercise. The truth is I hate to exercise so I usually don't. That is going to change very soon. I am going to start with small steps. 10 minutes on the tread mill. As far as my end goal I am very undecided about that at this time.The fact still remains that I have at least 26 lbs. to lose to meet my goal of 100 lb. loss. I have to lose 46 more lbs. so I would not be considered overweight. My doctor once told me that he thought in the 170's should be a good weight. I feel the next 20 lbs. will make a big difference in the way I look & feel.
I am going to try blogging on a more regular basis.
