WOW - 10 lbs. lost in 3 weeks!!!!

Thursday, November 01, 2012

I am so happy, I have finally reached my first 10 lbs. lost and I am SOOOOOOOO excited. I just knew if I could lose 10# that I would be able to do this....now I have motivation I've been lacking. I'll be down to my normal weight by August of 2013 and I will be in the shape of my adult life at 58 years young!

Ooh, can't you feel how tickled I am???

    Thanks Shell.....nothing like reaching your first goal to encourage you. BUT, I have a much larger goal in mind. I shattered my ankle in 2000 and I refused to allow them to amputate and they put me back together and said I would have pain for the rest of my life (they were right!). I've been waiting for the last 10 years for them to perfect and have good success with ankle replacement surgery, and my team of doctors feel confident that the latest equipment will last me 10 - 20 years. They are now up to a 78% - 85% success rate in he USA. I will be one of the youngest people to get the surgery, but my leg cannot handle any more breaks. The only draw back is the equipment cannot support a weight of more than 180#, so I need to be down to that weight before surgery.

I'm on my way....I called my surgeon's office and left a message for his assistant and already have 2 emails with "congrats and you can do it!"

Feels good.....I know the next 10 lbs. may not be as easy, but now I'm determined! Thanks for adding me as a friend. Keep in touch!

  That's fantastic!! Good for you. I am still working at my second 10 lbs, but nothing is happening fast that's for sure. Still, I'm sticking with it - what's the alternative?

Keep up the good work!

Blew is over the weekend, still lost .8 lbs.

Monday, October 29, 2012

I really had a bad weekend. I went to Columbus, OH with 9 other ladies from our church to a Ladies Conference, and though I brought healthy snacks, all the eating out was horrendous on the count. I loved being away and being with my friends, but I'm sure glad to be home and me judging and picking out what I eat and not eat. Eating out is really not a healthful way to live, I don't see how people do it when they travel all the time.

I am one happy camper.....I weighed in last Friday here at work and didn't get to sign up until Monday so I used Friday's weight. I weighed just now and I've lost 2.2 lbs. I am so excited I can just jump!

Just thought I would share my good news!

YIKES!!!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I always said I never eat a lot, but probably a lot of BAD stuff, and sure enough, the first day knocked me on my butt (10/15/12). The last few days I have been better, but I still don't eat enough protein. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't like most meat. I'm going to need to buy some chicken breasts and fish this weekend, maybe some eggs too. I'm still eating too many sweet things!

Looking back, it's a miracle that with both parents being diabetics and me being overweight with a sweet tooth that I am not either....but I get tested at least twice a year and I don't have diabetes (thank God). I sure can see I need to kill the sweet tooth though.

I'm really lucky that I haven't met a veggie I don't like (even spinach and lima beans!)LOL.

My day started out really bad, but I just some self talk and said "this ankle doesn't hurt anymore than it does any other day, GET OVER IT!" and after my 1/2 hour of pouting, I said enough is enough, I like to laugh and tease people at work too much to have a long face and it is now 2:15 EST and I'm doing pretty good.

Lunch is just about over and I haven't finished my homework for school tonight! I must be crazy going for my accounting degree this late in my life, but it sure makes things interesting.

Hoope you all are having a blessed day.

    Thank you for the comment and for the SparkGoodie. I'm just getting used to all of this, and so far, everyone is making my trip down weight-loss lane, a remarkably pleasant one.


Thanks again,
Debi
