I just came to the realization that I haven't posted anything on this blog in over a month. School does so often get in the way, and now the holidays on top of it. I'm feeling very excited because, despite the holidays being around, and all the wonderful food offered me, and the fact that I give myself Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve as "cheat days" I'm still losing weight and even finding myself able to indulge in small amounts of seasonal treats on my non-holiday days off from school. Admittedly, the loss is slower than it was while I had ongoing classes, because Wii Fit Plus just isn't as good as the elliptical at my school's gym, but apparently it's working.

So, I went to my doctor a few days ago, and she checked my A1C levels (for those unfamiliar that's a long-term look at your blood glucose levels) & I'm no longer showing spikes (ie, my risk for becoming diabetic is now much lower, thanks to my lifestyle changes). I am very happy about this, and wanted to share my joy! I still do have totally unexplainable dips in my glucose levels, however, which could easily interfere with my ability to continue losing weight (exercise & insulin shock don't mix), so my doctor and I are trying to figure out the cause. Nonetheless, victory! Only dips is better than spikes and dips.

That's a big ol' bag of clothes which are now way too big for me to wear anymore. Also, the bag is from Lane Bryant, a store at which I can no longer shop because I'm too small for their clothes (except their bras which come in a decent array of sizes and I love their push-up bras, but that's another story altogether).
Needless to say, I'm very excited. I'm no longer a plus size, my BMI is now "overweight" rather than "obese," and I'm almost half way to my goal weight!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who posted encouraging comments on my last blog. I'm touched by how many people offered a kind word to me. In the end it is something I have to work through this with my therapist (and I am). I am leaving the house, I just felt like I didn't want to for a few days.
That said, I'm so close to a milestone in my weight loss... this morning I weighed in at 200.4 lbs. which means I will soon be under 200 lbs. I'm very excited & just felt like saying something about it here.

I was plugging along, doing just fine, then someone said something hurtful to me, and now I'm finding it difficult to simply leave the house (it doesn't help that my next door neighbor is the one who did this, and fear of more confrontation is keeping me inside).
I know that, for some, this could lead to overeating due to emotional state. My problem is just the opposite. I have no appetite when I'm depressed. While I guess it makes up for the fact that I don't feel up to exercising, this is not good for my blood sugar levels. I'm doing my best, but I barely managed to make myself eat 1,000 calories yesterday. I wish I could just get over this, but it's easier said than done.
