Not Good :(

Friday, October 24, 2008

I did my diabetes labs last week and did a follow up with the doctor this week. MyA1c is higher at 7.5 and yet just back in July it was 7.4. Although it's not a big change it does matter to me. So now for sure I need to get moving with the exercies, or at least strength training so I can get my A1c below 7.0 which my doctor recommends.
Oh yes I did talk to my doctor about my weight issue and she said she does do referrals for bariactric surgery. Either the lapband or the other surgical procedures. I told her I would think about this but to go ahead and do the referral so I can get more information.
So far I've been keeping up with my First Place 4 Health group and enjoying the fellowship with my group. But I do have one problem and that is my food journal which I just can't be consistant in writing in.
Well that's it for updates. Have a blessed weekend Sparkfamily,

    Now that I write EVERY bite that goes into my mouth it has really helped me with my weight loss. I have a planner for the year and I bring it with me anywhere I'll be eating. That way I can be sure to write everything down.

Keep at it and before you know it it'll be 2nd nature.

    If you write down everything that goes in your mouth you are more likely to stick with it! It is so important to see on paper what you are eating, it shows you when you do better .. Keep on writing!

    Yes the food journal is the best asset to dieting but I too have a hard time being consistant. Keep at it though you can do it. YOU can do better on that AIC too! I am type 2 not on meds ...still struggle to lose but AIC 5.3. Not saying to discourage. I know it is TOUGH.

Not so hard

Monday, October 13, 2008

Wow, I did it! I actually did a 30 minute walk this morning. I am going out of town this afternoon but will be back tomorrow, and I am hoping we get back early so I can get in another walk.
Well so far so good, I do pray for you all to have a successful and blessed week.

    Exercising first thing in the morning really sets your day up nicely...too bad I can never wake up early enough.

Again I try

Monday, October 06, 2008

Ok, so I messed up last week with the exercise but it's a new week and I am ready to "just do it" this time. But there is more I need to confess. I gambled too much money and haven't told my family yet. Why, why do I do this? I didn't leave us broke but we can't buy things we want. My husband took my debt card last time but I think I should surrender it again. So that is my next goal, to not gamble for the next 2 1/2 months. Now I feel relieved to say it here, now back to business of weight loss.

    Every day at a time. Just know that you can do this. We have faith in you, you just have to believe it yourself. Not always easy, I know, but YOU CAN!!!

Keep looking for the help and you will surely find it. The day you stop looking is the day you will be in trouble.

Keep going.

Your SparkFriend

    I am sorry about your gambling debt, if it continues to be a problem,go get help for it as it is an addiction just like our food addictions. You want to be a proud mama and wife, you can do it, you are worth the effort. New day-- it is a do over! We can not change the past but we can make better tomorrows

  It will be OK, it is best to fess up to your hubby on the gambeling, so you can deal with it head on!! I fell off the diet wagon too, so I know how it is. You CAN DO IT!!

    Joe Anne,

Hey girl, we all mess up sometime. Just get back on track and do a little exercise of some kind every day, even if its only 10 minutes of walking. Gambling, ummmm, I have a tendency to gamble to much too. I end up stopping when the money runs out and have to wait until next payday. Good luck on your personal challenges. One pound at a time, one step at a time, whatever it takes.

I did it! emoticon I did my 3 days of exercise for the week. I'll try it again for next week but add 1 day of weight training, unless I can get back to Curves.
Now I am off to bed early, because I have to work tomorrow the early shift.
GOODNIGHT Spark friends

Exercise is so good. I'm loving it!! Goodness. Did I really just say that? No, seriously, I love it. If I could afford to go back to Curves, I would. I used to be Manager of a Curves just over 3 years ago, but had to leave due to ill health. I would urge anyone to go that can afford it. I don't know what the fees are in the States, but over here in the UK they do have some really good offers going. Hey!! Who knows, they may give me X-Manager rates. emoticon Keep up the good work and you will certainly get where you need to be.

  Congratulation! It feels so good to meet our goals. Taking your lunch to work will be a big help. I'm used to it now but it does take some planning and work but I try to cook a weeks worth at one time. Thank you for adding me as a friend.

Day 2 of 3

Friday, September 26, 2008

Whoo Hoo! I finally got my second day of exercise in by doing 25 minutes of walking and 5 minutes of weights. I also did this first thing in the morning which felt really good and lasted all day.
Now I just need to get caught up on my water intake for the day. Have a blessed weekend SparkFriends :)
