SlimLila - where I wanted to be in 2010 & 2011 &2012 & 2013

If you don't set a goal, how will you ever know when you reach your goal?

Well I've been around for 3 years now. The initial 20 lbs. are off again. Way back in the beginning: The harder I tried the more challenges I faced- I have persevered despite no losses showing on the scale and learned to see other measures of my success. Being diabetic, my blood sugar is a major indicator of successful results. When I started on SP, my bs were in the 13-15 range for early a.m, now I have my AIC go down to 6.9, and I'm still here and getting motivated again. So, there are successes other than on the scale.

I had to laugh a little when I read your comment on my status about insomniacs. It's so ridiculous - *why can't we sleep*??? Other people sleep. Animals sleep. I'm not worrying or frightened or anything like that - I just completely lost all my circadian rhythms. This time of year, when I'm not working, I'm no more likely to be asleep at 2:00 a.m. (which is in about 5 minutes) than I am at 2:00 p.m.

My whole life I could *always* sleep - the tough part was staying awake. I'd fall asleep in literally one minute or less (which I later found out is abnormal.) I'd wake up with the sun and go to sleep early - always got a solid eight hours. Now I'm lucky if I get a solid three. My FitBit keeps track of my sleep and tells me that basically I sleep really poorly - which of course I'm quite well aware of. Somehow, though, seeing it on a tracker makes it more real. Out of nine hours in bed, I sleep for about 2 1/2 - the rest is "restlessness" or "awake". Melatonin works for a while, but you're not supposed to take it constantly, and I really hate the idea of sleeping pills.

So what do you do? Do you get up (I do) or lie there and fuss? Take pills? Take naps? Ugh. This is so frustrating!

Thanks so much for the comment on my last blog about juicing. It is something I plan to do again in the near future. It really is a learning experience. For me, it was learning that we can be starving to death while, at the same time, getting fatter and fatter. When on the juice fast, when it is done according to the real program and with the right combination of vegetables (each item in the green juice is there for a specific REASON), the body does thank you ... Like it nearly screams - "Thank you for finally feeding me real nutrition".
Unfortunately, but the TRUTH, I CHOSE to go back to eating garbage. My heart and soul was not yet ready to make real changes after my juice fast ened. Soooo, I am FAT. LOL ...
BUT, dear friend, this is a new year and a new day - and "WE" will turn things around again. Right now it sounds like you are facing some huge challenges, but please know that I am here for you if and when you ever want to share your burden. I know I cannot do much to lessen the problems you face but I will always be here to listen and you can vent anytime you want!
Take good care and try to stay grounded. It is not always easy and some days are impossible, but maybe things will turn out better than expected at this time.

Wishing you a happy new year! emoticon
