Improving My Health Has Ripple Affects

I have been struggling with my weight for years, but never ever believed in fad diets. I am not a Yo Yo dieter, but my wieght has been climbing gradually over the years. I am now 5 pounds less than when I was full term with one of my daughters!! I am an emotional junk-food binger, and sometimes I can keep it in check but it has been harder the last few months. I am so at risk for diabeties, unless I change my bad habits!! I apreciate this site which is very encouraging to me, with the ...
I have been struggling with my weight for years, but never ever believed in fad diets. I am not a Yo Yo dieter, but my wieght has been climbing gradually over the years. I am now 5 pounds less than when I was full term with one of my daughters!! I am an emotional junk-food binger, and sometimes I can keep it in check but it has been harder the last few months. I am so at risk for diabeties, unless I change my bad habits!! I apreciate this site which is very encouraging to me, with the small goals it presents. I feel like there is a possibility I can actually achieve my goals!

3/22/12 Showing signs of pre-diabetes. Fasting Bood sugar today was 116. Too high...I changed my SparkDiet over to the Pre-Diabetes setting.

5/24/12 Fasting glucose is down to 104, and I have lost 27 pounds! (Lately my eating has been terrible, but I am trying to work my way back to healthier haibts!) I haven't given up!
Oh and I got my itunes reward, but I haven't bought an outfit yet!

6/17/13 I gained back poundage, about 10 lbs. and wrestle with my eating habits. I have been avioding measuring, but the positive is that I still eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and drinking water is a no brainer now. I think it is time for a new and different goal. My goal is to keep track of my foods, concentrating on keeping my carbs in check. My personal life is very tough for me right now, painful, and I have not been wanting to put out the effort of eating good portions. But, I value my life and my family and I want to feel like I can move my body without it feeling so difficult. So, in view of my families predisposition to diabeties and the desire to feel better and fit my clothes better, I am going a step at a time towards carb. control.

9/20/13 I'm back to walking more, tracking, and eating better. 229lbs, and trying to stay with it. It's tough to be patient!

11/23/13 Down to 221! I can't wait to reach 220 and download a new digital song to my MP3 player as a reward!

My Goals:
My goals are to have healthier habits so that hopefully, Diabeties won't catch up to me, like it has with too many of my family members. My healthy habits will include daily excercise, and a lower level of carbs in my diet, along with a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables. I also want to be more aware of what I am eating, and stop binging on sweets.
To get my weight will mean a lot to me. My quality of life, being able to take on more house cleaning jobs without my back and kness hurting, being more acitve with my kids, and being healthy for them so I will be there for them a long time.

My Program:
My program includes tracking my water drinking, along with tracking my foods so that I am more aware of what I am putting into my body. I also includes having a goal of excercising 10 mins or more everyday, and to make it a long streak!

Personal Information:
I am a California girl, born and raised. I have three beautiful kids. I love music, and reading, Nancy Drew games, and spending time with my family. Just for future refference, don't worry about sending me any holiday goodies, because I just don't celebrate any holidays. It's a personal choice I have made.

Other Information:
I love the book Jane Eyre. I also love to read the Bible. My favorite book of the Bible is Proverbs. One verse that is my favorite, is at Proverbs 25:11 "As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it". If you can say something good to somebody, don't hesitate to say it! I learned early on in life how to be tactful and aware of a persons feelings. Knowing when to speak and when to be quiet can be a challenge! Encouragement, the art of listening, and empathy are also a big part of it.

If it makes you feel any better emoticon , if I were in high school today, 60% of my same-height peers would weigh less than I do. And girls were thinner in 1971! So high school weight wasn't really thin for me. But I see now that it was perfectly acceptable, even then. Not sure I could ever have felt it, though. It was the age of Twiggy. I'd bet the thin girls didn't feel thin, meaning they didn't feel admiration-worth. What a shame.

Back to the present!

Have faith that over time you can learn to eat in a joyful way without overeating. In a few years, you'll look back and see good changes. Keep acknowledging every small victory. It goes a long way towards grounding you in good habits. emoticon
