Well...good news AND bad news.
First, will be the bad news. I've only lost 6 (six) pounds in the last three months! I console myself with the "muscle weighs more than fat" comment.
Now for the good news!
1. My cholesterol has dropped from 206 to 173! The added nuts every night and fish twice a week has really worked wonders!
2. I've lost six pounds.
3. My A1c is at 5.7. That means fewer lows on the blood sugar.
4. Doctor dropped my insulin units again! I'm down to 16 units in the morn and 14 units at nite!
5. I am now starting to wear size 14s (down from size 16) and large shirts instead of Extra Large! So, I'm still shrinking!
6. I now walk at least 10,000 steps every night in 75 minutes. That works out to about 4.1 miles and a 19 minute/mile!
Points of it all...health is getting better, muscle is forming and I LOVE my nightly walks! I am going to keep "sparking" and stay positive!

Thanks for the votes of support...the positive comments! I really do appreciate it. Therefore, I'm NOT going to give up on my December goals. I did set those goals to go up...not to push me back down.
So, today is a pedometer day. I get to take my youngest daughter back to college. She comes home every other week, stays overnight, and goes back the next day. Yep, she goes to a four-year college about 15 miles away, She stays in the dorms for most of the school year. The walking and back and forth activity is a good idea on just what I put in for the day. Now, the night is a whole different story!
I'm already prepping stuff for the new year! I've had a program on my puter for quite a while and have decided to learn it and start using it. It's going to help me coordinate all of the health and life stuff into something that I can setup to start at a specific time every day. I think that it will help keep me focused.
Hope everyone is having a great Saturday! Time for me to incite some positive mischief! Love, Laugh, Live!

Wouldn't you know it? The minute I post new goals...ACK! I keep telling myself that the new goals are SUPPOSED to be motivation. It's just not looking that way right now! Then I make the mistake of stepping on the scale. Not good. Come to find out the scale at home is over 30 years old and (according to my dad) hasn't been accurate in about 15 years! It always reads about 10 pounds more than is true! Part of it has to do with there not being a level place to set it on. So, it's ignore the scale or rip up all of the tile in the house. I'm going for ignoring the scale and waiting for doctor appt in January.
Next option is to find the measuring tape. Scary! My clothes are fitting better and I'm having to cut back on the insulin. I know...those are small consolations. However, for now, I'll take what I can get. hehehe
Hope everyone else is getting all set for the Winter Holiday season!
