Tale of two weeks

Monday, February 18, 2013

Two good weeks in a row.... Weight down by 10 pounds. Under 275...I never thought being under 275 would be a goal.....however....I had ballooned to 285..so with two good weeks,,,,I am on track and encouraged. Interesting happenings....bloodwork showed I had high sugar....pre-diabetes or diabetes...not sure which. Good excuse to cut out white carbs...looking into proper foods for diabetic diet combined with weight loss. Seems to be the same or better. Lost 5 ponds this week. Have a nasty cold...so helps with snacking urges....Really a big help to breaking habit! Love how a plan comes together.

    Hope you're feeling better!!!

Keep on keeping on....I understand that weight....always hated to admit it!!

And, I'm not losing anywhere near as much weekly as you....I'm not even losing that much monthly, but it's steadily coming off and I can see the change in the mirror, in the fact that I needed to get a size smaller in slacks, and in the way that I feel.

Good luck on this journey and keep on keeping on!!

Most people begin a new health lick in Jan. ... Not me...I get it around Feb...the gym has cleared out by then lol! I have yo hoed to my highest weight...a bummer! Serious start...went to Dr. Getting all checked out...I hann't been sleeping well...which never happens...and feeling tired in the afternoon. I attribute it to my weight. Dr. Says it might be sleep apnea...either way - it is connected to my weight. And, you also need to get good rest to help weight loss! A vicious circle! Time to reclaim the life I want!

  


Energetic Focus!!!

Thursday, February 02, 2012

So...I have had trouble getting started....emotional eating/nighttime snacking....my main downfall! Gained back much of previous loss on Spark program. So....a restart for my health on Feb. 1!! Reset my spark goals...I used to think slow and steady wins the race. My new theme...Energetic focus!!! Eye on the prize! Spark People works if I do!!! I even changed my ticker from a turtle to a running angel!!! Symbolic yes....but a positive change no less!!! No nighttime eating last night....Good workout at the Y today with my sister-in-law. Success one day at a time!!!

    Congrats on the loss - and to sticking to not emotional eating for most of the week! It's hard, I know, but now that you know you can do it - next week should probably be a little easier. : ) Good luck!

2011 happened

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

How to sum up this past year. 2011 happened....a year of major transitions. Good transitions.....I took a church musician position in my home church and moved back to my hometown. Heartbreaking transition: After six months of declining health we lost our beloved Mom in June. Her heart just wore out. Adjusting to life without our Mom......tough...but I have tried to continue as she lived....with faith, love, joy, and courage! Time has been a blur.....beginning to come into focus. Strong support from family and friends.... I feel I am mentally and emotionally ready to "Spark" again. So......one day at a time.....slow and steady wins the race!!!!
