"Atkins" It Works For Me!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

emoticonGuys,
I just wanted to touch base with you as I do not get on much lately. I stay busy with mom lately as she has been put on a new emoticon that we have had to cut way back because it makes her want to faint. That is not a good thing either, because we do not need her to fall. I wish they would let her take something else, but they keep saying that it will be good for her kidneys if she can take it. I try and stay with her all that I can. My daughter is a big help. She has not found a job yet and is able to be with her more than me.

I had to take her and dad to the doctor about two weeks ago. At dad's doctor office we found he had lost 10 pounds emoticon. I think he was shocked as much as the doctor was. She commended him and told him to keep it up. He told her he had only been cutting back on the breads a little. He told her about me losing on the Atkins plan. She told him that it was a great diet and that one of the doctors that worked in the office had lost 60 pounds doing it, and had cured his diabetes, and was not taking any emoticon for anything now. This was a big encouragement to not only him, but me also.

I stepped in to moms doctors office and her doctor looked like he had just had plastic surgery, and had gained about 10 years to his life. He had lost 20 pounds. He was never one to need to lose weight to me. He is in his 60's, but you could never tell it. He also had been doing Atkins and is now running. He says people just look at him in disbelief when they see him running down the road. emoticon

I did want to tell you that I have not weighed in this week, but I did have visits with my doctor and with my dietician Mrs. Lisa. I have managed to finally loose 24 pounds. I got on emoticon in each of these offices, but they are not the scales I regularly weigh in on. It is so weird how one emoticon will say one thing an another emoticon will say something different. Both showed me at losing 24 pounds this week though.

My new labs are emoticon:
A1C
Last time was 6.8. This time was a 6.5. emoticon

A1C value range is:

4.7--5.6=Normal
5.7--6.4= Prediabetic
6.5 and over =Diabetic

As you can see I am one point from being in the prediabetic range and about 9 more points of seeing the NORMAL range. Still a lot of work to do, but it is a very worthy goal to work toward.

My Cholesterol results really blew my mind as I have been eating the real fats not the low fat stuff.

Last time results on my Triglycerides was 151
This time results 133
Normal range is 33--135
So this is in the normal range. It was in the high range when eating low fats.
emoticon

Cholesterol
Last time 144
This time 136
Normal range is 100-200
So this is in the normal range
emoticon

HDL (good cholesterol)
Last time was a 50
This time was a 50
Normal is 30-85
No change but I think this is emoticon

LDL (bad cholesterol)
Last time 65
This time it was a 58 WHAT emoticon
That's right a 58 it went down 7 points and I am eating real fats not LOW-FAT JUNK! emoticon
Normal range is 0-129.

The doctor thought I was sick at first as I had went in the last time I was there and complained with stomach problems, and this time I am asking how long before I come off some of these emoticon. He told me I was to be commended for losing this weight, and he could not wait to see the next labs. To keep it up and we will see. He said that Atkins had been around for a long time, and was one of the better things I could use to lose weight.

Mrs. Lisa could not believe her paperwork, emoticon, or other devices she had to use in the office. They all read great results. She was sort of speechless and just reminded me that I might need to come off this diet every three months for about two weeks,and then proceed. She was happy that I had finally found something that was working for me.

I can't wait to be able to get to the next phase of this diet where I add carbohydrates back in a little at the time, but for right now I am enjoying the "no" stomach issues and having some of the energy that use to be mine come back. Who knows with the fat getting gone I might stay on this phase! See you guys latter I am gone for a emoticon with my Chi Chi. emoticon

    emoticon Great job on losing weight and getting healthy! I am glad you have found a plan that works for you!

I can empathize on the situation with your mom, I hope the doctor can get her emoticon regulated soon. My mom has been having a lot of health issues lately also, and I know it can be emotionally and physically draining.

    Great job on sticking with the Atkins! My husband, Joe, and I just started a high fat, low carb lifestyle on Monday and we're astonished by the early results (weight melting off, head clear, emotions more steady, etc.). We're looking forward to our labs in October that's for sure!!!

Awesome results! I was just reading some information yesterday on the web about the Atkins diet. I am so glad you are seeing such great results!!!

Sorry to hear your Mom is having issues with her meds though. Hopefully, it gets better very soon. I am working with my Dad's doctor right now on different meds. We are just looking for quality versus quantity at this point. The doctor wants him on these for at least 30 days, then he will re-evaluate.

Keep up the great work!

Mountain Vacation (Part 1)

Thursday, July 19, 2012

emoticon Guys,
I have had a great month so far. My goal for June and July was to have at least 10 more pounds lost. I have done this as of today! emoticon I am feeling much better, more energetic, and I feel I have learned a lot about what I can put in my mouth and what I can't. I have lost 20 pounds total and I can not wait to go back to the doctor's in August. That is when I take my A1C. I am hoping it will be lots better. I would love to loose more weight by then also. I am going to try and set another goal of 10 more pounds by September.

Did I eat right while on vacation? Well, you know how vacations are. I will admit to emoticon two emoticon. I did get some exercise though to help combat it. The motel had an inside swimming pool. I did use this one night, but did not get in any more. It was a heated pool, but for me not heated enough. The next morning I woke up with my arthritis knees, legs, and feet killing me. The only thing I could think of was the water was way too cool for me. Icy Hot was taken out of the suitcase and applied several times and so was my regular medications for this problem. I still walked around like I was crippled for most of the first day there. We stayed in beautiful Hendersonville, NC. The town has such a great atmosphere. It is a small town atmosphere.

The first stop on our agenda was Carl Sandburg's home. He is a famous writer. It was located in the next town over called Flat Rock, N.C. I do have a few pictures:



These are scenes of the house and the pond before you get to his house.



This is scenes of the bridge you cross to get over to the house.
The last two pictures are of mom and I.

Here is the sign explaining that the house is 110 feet up a hill and we
tried our best mom and I, but the little engine that could just did not get
up the hill. Her heart and my legs would not give. So this let's me know
that even though I have come a long way there is still an even longer
journey ahead of me. I want to climb that hill one day and get pictures
for my mom of the inside of the house. Just another goal I guess. Who
knows maybe I will be able to do this next year. All I can do is
emoticon!

This is the beautiful sign in front of the nice bathrooms located at the end
of the hill . What a great picture of Carl Sandburg. This is where mom really
got crazy ! I think she did not get enough air circulating to her brain here!
As you have noticed we have been in a wooded area here around a pond. I have
a terrible fear of snakes. She knows this of course. What does she do?
Well we went inside the bathrooms which were located outside with
doors on them. Do I trust the doors to not let a snake in? No, not really.
I sat down in the stall beside mom and she politely took her hand and put
it under the door and grabbed my leg. I am so glad that I was sitting where
I was! I s-c-r-e-a-m-e-d so loud! Everyone thought something had gotten
me (there was something got me)! . emoticon

When I calmed down, I politely told my mom that "Pay back could be
something not real nice!" I heard every woman in the bathroom laugh
and sigh a sound of relief! My sister was standing outside my door
bent double emoticon. Needless to say she had to get in my stall as
fast as possible! Mom could not stop emoticon and you would have
thought her silly little prank would have made her day ( it did!).
It was time to leave! Thank God! Mom and my sister emoticonall the way
up the hill to the emoticon! All I could say was Ha! Ha! emoticon

Next, we went uptown Hendersonville to get a bite to emoticon. We finally found
a place to park and got out and smelled something cooking around the corner.
The aroma was simply put "To die for!" emoticon There was a local man
coming out the door and I looked at my sister Ramona, and mom, and said "Should I?"
They said "Why sure!" I asked him how the food was and he replied "That he
was not telling a story that it was emoticon!" So with that type of
endorsement we went in! The name of the restauraunt was
Three Chopt Sandwich Shoppe. The name comes from and early American trail.
Trees on the trail were blazed by axes with three chops, showing the way to go.
The trail eventually became a major road in Richmond Virginia. There was
a deal where you got a half sandwich, cup of soup, bag of Sun Chips, pickle, and
a drink for about $8.00 and some change! Just our kind of deal! My choice was
chicken salad on pumpernickel and cream of broccoli soup! It was out of this emoticon! The bread was not on my diet, but it must not have been that
bad for me. Maybe I just burned it off walkingthe city streets the rest of the day.
As mom shopped till I dropped! emoticon




These are pictures of the town streets with all the flowers and beautiful
hanging baskets. As you can see, a lot of the restaurants have places on
the sidewalk to eat also. I enjoyed the different shops and my stroll down the
streets.

Let me introduce you to my new friend. On just about every street corner
in town there is a bear statue. Don't ask me why? All I know is there are a lot
of black bears in this area. They really are too friendly sometimes and not
real fun to come up on in the woods! emoticon even though they look
so cute.

Well I think I will stop here for tonight! Did I eat right and get the exercise
needed? I'll let you be the judge. I weighed in Tuesday when I went back to
work. I had lost 2 pounds. Sometimes I feel that you can indulge some, but
you better be doing something to combat that indulgence. Stay tuned to part two!

I love this pictorial blog of your trip. What beautiful sights. All though Kenny & I have never vacationed in Hendersonville, quite often we pass thru heading to our destination.

DO ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG?

Thursday, July 12, 2012

ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG

I'm telling you baby
You know that only the good die young
Only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood
Only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood
Only the good die young
Ooo ooo ooo...

You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd
We ain't too pretty we ain't too proud
We might be laughing a bit too loud
Aw But that never hurt no one

So come on Virginia show me a sign
Send up a signal I'll throw you the line
The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind
Never lets in the sun
Darlin' only the good die young
I tell ya
Only the good die young

This is parts of a song that has stuck in my mind all week as I have went through my day. I believe Billy Joel sings it, and I remember it well. Last week a young man that I got the pleasure of teaching in Sunday School died at the young age of 22. He was a precious person to me. He opted to come back in my classroom for 2 years to listen because he loved me I guess. emoticon He was always the type to be into mischief. Bad! No I would not call him that! He had a heart of gold and would give you his shirt off his back. He was a very unique person. One you either loved or you just did not like. I do not know how anyone could dislike him though.

He died at a sweet sixteen party. He went to leave the party to go home and some shots were fired from out of no where. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital I work for. No one knows why the shots were fired, or who did it. I went to the funeral home to grieve with the family and as I was standing in line I noticed a young man with a picture of the boy who died on his tee shirt. The caption above the picture said "Gone but not forgotten." The caption on the bottom of the picture said "Only the Good Die Young!

Later this week I was at work as we got word that two young men I did not know would be coming in on an ambulance DOA. They were only 18 years of age and had just graduated from high school. Football stars for one of our local schools, and so much of life ahead of them. There were three others about the same age coming in that were barely hanging on. I said a quick prayer for the families and for all of the employees that would have to face and help these families. They had been in a car accident. They were not speeding, cutting up or anything of this sort. The road was wet as it has not rained in awhile and the car spun and hit a tree. Two of the boys in the back seat were killed immediately. The song again came back to my mind again....

I guess what I am trying to say is this:
I have erased this blog three times. But no I am going to say it. Maybe someone out there needs to hear it. It can never hurt to remind someone, Have you hugged your child today? Have you hugged your love ones and told them how much they mean to you? We are none of us promised tomorrow. Get things right today while you can! Life is short, and some things don't need to go unsaid. Thanks for listening! It has felt like a release of burden to write this blog. It's been a week of lots of emotions in my community and in my life. Hopefully lots of thinking! No I do not believe that only the good die young, but this week has been a rough one to prove any other way. This too shall pass...... emoticon

    Wow, stories like that just make you see how small and trival our whining is at times. I feel for those parents. I can't even imagine how hard it is to lose a child.

God put you in a good place where you can pray for those who needs it. Our hospital used to be a few blocks away. After a bad motor cycle wreck that almost took my nephew, I got to the point, if I would hear the medical helicopter go over, I would pray for whoever was in it. One time I heard it go over, and I whispered a prayer. About 20 minutes later a friend of mine called and they had just flown her daughter out. She was in labor and there was complications. Thankfully mom and baby were fine.

Good blog April emoticon

OMG! When did this happen?

Saturday, June 16, 2012

I have had two of the most gorgeous days off this week that I can remember. It has been emoticon, and the Gardenias emoticon are blooming and have the air smelling so wonderful. Just a wonderful time to be outside I guess. I have company here at the house. It is a friend from Charlotte, NC. We always have a wonderful time when she is down. My mom and my friend have been getting along really, really well. They are more the same age. Don't tell my friend I said that though! She is one of those type that never age and always seem to feel younger than they are. Very inspiring because I know her real age, but I have promised not to tell. Most people would not believe me if I did tell them! emoticon She is wonderful!

Beth my daughter and I are getting along really well. We are both on the same wave length seems lately! Get this weight OFF! Get it off NOW! We both emoticon together with mom and my friend that is down from Charlotte, NC. today and yesterday in the park. We walked and talked and before you knew it we had walked about a hour. I was really pushing it! emoticon Maybe, that is what it takes me pushing myself to another level? I have a new support team at home and that was made a difference I think!

I have noticed something that I haven't noticed before. It is emoticon to me! I actually feel good! When did that happen? How did it ever leave me? My legs do ache from the walking, but I have something back that left me a long time ago! A little bit of energy to move! I use to be one of those type people that never stopped! Full of energy. I have not lost, but 12 pounds but it is surprising to me that those twelve pounds have already made such a difference. Just think what I could be feeling like if had a whole lot less on me. Am I getting my old metabolism back emoticon

1-I am emoticon better and that seems to be helping. I actually woke up this morning jumping out of bed and ready to get moving!

2- The new diet has me eating real fats not the man made stuff (full of carbs stuff) and my stomach issues are vanishing, one by one. I think low-fat has been some of my problems in this area.

3- I am not hungry all the time. I don't have the cravings for sugar all the time! The unsatisfied "I just want something" feeling! You know the ones that lead you to fail and feel guilty.

4- My blood sugar readings are really good. They have been as high as 189 in the morning. Lately around 125 and sometimes 110's.

I don't know when this happened, but I want to thank my God above for these results! If you emoticon hard enough and search hard enough He always come through! emoticon God and thank you SP. Who cares when it happened, just so it has happened and it can only get better! emoticon

    I too am a new member to all of this. I started on 5-27-2012 and I have only lost 11 pounds. I too am feeling more energy and able to walk for a longer period of time. The Dr. said I need to be careful about walking in the heat of Phoenix, AZ and to make sure I don't allow myself to become dehydrated. I also need to take it slow because I have arthritis in both knees and hips. I am sure that by losing weight, I will be putting less stress on my body!

Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Thursday, June 14, 2012

emoticon Guys,

My feed is saying that I lost 12 pounds at one time! Actually I have only lost 2 pounds since my last blog.. Not only did my ticker or tracker thing go away, my emails, and my last weigh in results went away also. I have lost 12 pounds since April. I guess I need to write somebody about all of this. Just thought I would let you know I am having technical difficulty. emoticon.

I really do not know how to correct it except to keep blogging! Hope everyone has a great week! emoticon

    emoticon2 is good! Yes having technical difficulty is a part of our daily live in this time we live. Soon we will be in a place with no technical difficulty, or diet problems exist. We will be full of JOY, peace, love, hope, health, and eternal fellowship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Have a blessed day! We are blessed! Thank you for sharing! emoticon emoticon

    When in doubt, keep on blogging, huh? Sounds like a reasonable plan. Although, others have given some great proactive suggestions...

    If you will go to the message board and find the section for Tech messages you can ask a question relating to your problem and there is someone who should help clear the problem. Good Luck.

    If only it were that easy to lose weight - just set the tracker to the desired weight and Presto Chango! Thanks for giving me my smile for the day. emoticon

    Did you look in the "Help" section for these issues? I only know how to get there from my Start Page, far right drop down menu "How to use this site" and then last entry, "Frequently Asked Questions" If the answer isn't there, you can post a question for a coach to answer, I believe in the same area. I hope you get it resolved soon, technical difficulties are very very frustrating.

On the positive side ....12 pounds since April is awesome! emoticon
