Worth the read!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

I just finished my hypnosis book. It was very good, full of good information. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to lose weight. even if you don't do the hypnosis techniques, it is worth reading. the book is I Can Make You Thin, by Paul McKenna. He addresses emotional eating, cravings, hunger and raising your metabolism. I still listen to the CD at night and I believe it is working. I have learned new skills when it comes to eating. A definite "yes" to reading this book. I got it from Barnes and Noble.

Pedometer Ideas Please

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Any suggestions on where I can get a decent pedometer? I am looking for something that goes around your ankle. I would like something reasonably priced. I would like to track my steps. The SP store has one but it is to clip on a belt. I don't wear pants around the house so I want something for my ankle. Thanks......

    Mine by omron, (walking style x pedometer) will work in a pocket, or hung around your neck or in your bra. It was available via amazon.

    I'm not sure you're going to find one that goes around your ankle. I have never seen that type.

Maybe this will help:

Exercise Progress

Monday, August 01, 2011

Spoke to the dietician today by phone about my consult. While we were talking she wanted me to walk 3 miles. I told her that was too much for me. She then suggested alternating my 2.2 mph with 2.3 mph. I told her I had tried that and it made finishing my walk difficult. Well, I tried it again today. I noticed my 2.2 mph was a little slow. So I alternated a little with 2.2 and 2.3 mph. I managed 47 minutes for 7 laps on the track and 250 calories. When I finished I told myself to go back and walk the additional 3 minutes for a total of 50 minutes for the day. I did the 3 extra minutes and walked at 2.4 mph. I got 266.7 calories burned. I felt good and my back didn't hurt like it usually does. I'll try it again tomorrow and see how I do. WooHoo!!!!!!

2.5 pounds lost!!

Sunday, July 31, 2011

I haven't given up and I managed to lose 2.5 pounds in a week. I was up to 238, but didn't document it. I was mad that I had gained another pound. i weighed today and I was down to 235.5. I don't know if it is my habits kicking in or the glucomannan I am taking. Whatever it is I am glad. It feels good to finally have a little success. I won't get overly excited because the scale can easily go in the other direction!! I joined the Chair Exercise weight loss challenge today for Aug.1st through Sept 26th. I am trying to keep my calories up a little and exercising 6 days a week. I am up to 45 minutes on the treadmill for 1.65 miles. I think back in May when I started exercising and I could only walk for 5 minutes at a time. Now I can do the whole 45 minutes without stopping. Today was my free day, my day of rest, but I walked for 15 minutes I felt a little guilty skipping so I walked for a little while. At least today I can say I'm making progress!!!

    I do that too, y'know... Sunday is a day of rest, but though I skip the strength training I NEVER skip my walks... I may not go as far, but I find them rather refreshing...

I am going to go ahead and have a consult with a dietician. The last one I had was back in 1977 when I was diagnosed with DM.. Lots of stuff has changed since then. I checked with my Medicare Insurance and the consult is covered for diabetes management. I would like the consult for weight loss but that isn't covered. Maybe the dietician can ascertain my necessary calorie range and I'll have better luck with my weight loss efforts. I have progressed to my next goal for my walking and can do 45 minutes now. I'll keep trying!! I'm not a quitter!!!!!!!

    The "consult" for weight loss is separate from renal and diabetic care?? Since WHEN?? LOL

You have a consultation with a nutritionist (you didn't say whether it's a renal specialist or not...) They always ask about your lifestyle and tastes, so be upfront with your concerns, snacking issues, etc. NOTHING can dictate what questions you ask in that consultation, so write down the things you want to know and take your list of questions with you-- and be sure to tell him/her what you said here, and ASK about the weight loss issues that are just as important to controlling your symptoms as the kinds of food you eat are!

I'm glad you have this opportunity--don't be afraid to take advantage of it! I have never know any of them to record the conversation-- or balk at answering any legitimate nutrition questions!
