I missed my short term and long term weight but my home weigh-in on Aug 30, 2015 was true 163.4 lbs. Therefore, I have made progress toward my weight goal. I am not discouraged just must keep on my journey of healthiness. My short term goal weight is 153 lbs on January 30, 2016. On September 16, 2016, I expect to weigh 145 lbs.
I am participating in free coffee talk health classes offered by my local hospital. I have start walking inside home and outside during this week. Since 1 year anniversary have passed, I will register for VA "Let's Move" program again. SparkPeople provides the nutrition tracker and other tools to track my food and activities. SP also educate me with a wide variety of nutrition, health and activity interest awareness.
My basic concept is eating healthy with a more active life-style.
Know ye that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. 1 Cor 3:16
Sort of fluctuating with the 199, between it, and 200; so, I am not going to celebrate, yet, that I am under 200 pounds. I am trying to take losing weight, seriously, and stick to what I am doing, for now. This plan is working for me. It may be really slow; however, it is something that I seem to be able to handle, without getting discouraged, and/or bored!
Girl, I went for my Stress Test this morning. First, because I am a hard stick; this woman (who did not listen) stuck me, trying to put an IV in, and missed completely. Then, the IV Specialist that came to do it informed me that there wasn't even a vein where she stuck me (and, was trying to apologize for the other woman's mistake)! Second, on the treadmill part, I was unable to finish. Girl, when they sped up the treadmill (an electric one, of course) ... it felt like it was going super fast; and I couldn't hold on. I tried, and, finally, ended up yelling that I couldn't hold on. All of these people came running from different directions to catch me. I was so embarrassed; though, grateful that I was off of that treadmill. I love my manual one, even, more, now! I thought that they were going to have to do the one, with the needle; however, the head person was looking at my readings, and told the woman that I had gotten up to a pretty good speed, and that the readings are good enough. I, practically, was trying to run to get out of there! The way that Nigel greeted me when I got to the car, you would think that he knew what I had just been through! So, now, I have to wait the agonizing days for them to contact me, to tell me the results. My fingers crossed!
