THE NEW ME 2013. I HAVE SOME HEALTH CHALLENGES BUT I DO NOT LET THEM CONTROL ME OR USE THEM AS A EXCUSE. I WORK THUR THEM AND ON THEM. I HAVE LEARNED TO ENJOY AND LOVE EXERCISE. ALTHOUGH STRENGTHENING NEEDS TO BE WORKED ON.

I AM A EMOTIONAL EATER AND I AM WORKING ON IT BY FAITH EVERY DAY.. I AM LOOKING INTO THE MAKER DIET. IT IS FAITH BASED. I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL I REACH MY GOAL WEIGHT THIS UPCOMING FALL/WINTER. I AM A WOMAN OF FAITH AND I WILL USE IT IN EVERY SITUATION OF MY LIFE.




DISTRACTION LIST TO GUARD AGAINST EMOTIONAL EATING


1. Distance myself from the desired food. Go outside etc. Go window shopping at my fav thrift store.


2. Chewing gum or drink green tea. Drink low cal or no cal beverage like green teas, club soda, water with fruit slices. you would be surprised how a few fruit slices changes the tastes of water. . (At present time I am in my 5rd round of BLC and I am off one of my medications that lower blood sugars.) I have lost next to 15 pounds pounds. I have to stay on guard. I have recently found out that even my met combo meds can make me have a low blood sugar reaction. CRUD! So here is my plan for that...If I feel a low coming on I will allow (Unless I have already eating and know it is not time to eat and I know my blood sugars are not low) I will use food from my free list if lightly hungry but if I am starving. try a small apple, veggie plate-- of broccoli, carrots celery peppers, cherry tomatoes, lettuce or boiled egg whites with grapes, cucumbers slices with FF LC ranch dressing or laughing cow cheese with light salted rice cakes, or 1/2 cup applesauce sugar free or a small fruit like blueberries and make a small smoothie made with light almond milk with a little vanilla favoring a few coconut flakes. I will use this technique: Over come craving sweets by sucking on lemons salty by: eating a pickle, Garlicky or spicy desired of foods by: Chewing gum (mint) tic tacs mints and peppermint candy sugar free only allotting myself 1-2 pieces.


3. Exercise-- 10 min session of pilates for relaxing--yoga if possible, slow walking, deep breathing, Cleaning out closets or my bed room dresser drawer or re-organize it.Go thur my craft boxes and organize and clean it out. I have found out that I soon forget about eating afterwards.

4. Pray believing God will take me thur this time of testing or trial. Develop and use victory verses of the bible over temptation. devotions. I found a healing ministry dvd that will soothe any negative thoughts. Stinking thinking can get you into trouble. I refuse!

5. Cleaning/scrubbing floors, tub etc.

6. Do self care like napping, facials, use tea bags or cucumber sliced on eyes. Yes tea bags and cucumber slices are great on puffy and tired eyes. They feel cool and refreshing. Pedicures or manicures. .


7. Do crocheted projects. Keeping my hands busy really helps and I love crocheting anyway. I have made several crocheted projects including jewelry. I have also made jewelry from beading and wire works. I like having pieces that I have made with my own hands .

8. Go shopping--window shop for inexpensive items.or Leave the room.



MY SKILLS FOR COMBATING STRESS.


1. AS A MOM OF A SPECIAL NEEDS TEENAGER (OF WHICH HE IS ONE OF THE JEWELS OF MY EYES) I NEED DOWN TIME. TO COLLECT MYSELF BEFORE PUTTING A SPOON TO MY MOUTH. REMOVING MYSELF FROM THE STRESSFUL SITUATION IF POSSIBLE.

2. PRAYER AND QUOTING SCRIPTURE TO THE SITUATION
LIFE AND DEATH IS IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE.

3. IF TIRED TAKE A CAT NAP.

5. FOR AN EXTREMELY STRESSFUL DAY PILATES AND YOGA HELPS OUT.

6. REMEMBER AND REMIND MYSELF THAT FOOD IS NOT THE ANSWER.

I have given items to my family and close friends. I enjoy looking for new crocheting patterns and new beading designs some with wire. I am a christain who loves reading Gods word. I love start gazing and have been known to zap on a coat in the winter time to see the stars. I think winter times is the best time to view the stars.

Hey Pat! I started going to a new (young!) Endovrinologist, at the end of December,2013.
For over 20 years I have kept my A1c under 6.0 ~
Go to a new Dr. And this Dr. says I have been in too good a control...and that studies now show that for Seniors, their A1c should be about 7.0 (?!!!?). So in Dec. she cut my Glipizide from 5mg to 2.5mg. Then had blood work done 6/2/2014, A1c =A1c still 5.9. So now she cut it out completely on my late June Appointment. And my morning fasting blood glucose average is now 134. I was anxious about this, so, I called her, she said "no, that's not too high." But these numbers are freaking me out.
So I'm hanging on to the Glipizide ... just in case!

Never been told I'm in too tight control of my blood glucose, before! emoticon
