Can you believe my doctor called me not long ago? It's almost 8:30 at night. Anyway, my stress echo was normal, which I thought it probably was. Cool!

I did it- I lost 2 pounds. I can't believe it! I also lost an inch in my waist and a quarter of an inch in my neck. I'm so glad- I was getting a little frustrated with nothing happening. I just really hope I can lose more. It always seems like I hang around 130 which is where I have been around. I've been doing pretty well keeping in my calorie range and with my workouts.

Yesterday I had my stress echo at the cardiologist. First they took an ultrasound of my heart while I was resting. It was really cool to see the valves moving and the chambers of the heart. Then they put all those electrode things all over me and I got on the treadmill. I was only on it for 10 minutes, but it kept getting faster and the incline went up more. Every 2 minutes they would take my blood pressure. Then I had to hurry up and get back on the table so they could ultrasound my heart again. The doctor that was in there said everything looked good, which I figured I would be fine. I don't see my doctor until the beginning of July to see what he thinks. The ultrasound tech said that my heart was on the verge of growing bigger- I guess they measure different portions of the heart. He said that when you have high blood pressure your heart has to work harder, so it gets bigger. And the doctor seems to think that I'm on the verge of having high blood pressure.

So here's to keeping the heart healthy! In a couple of weeks I'll be going in for a lithotripsy on my left kidney. I have struggled with stones since college. Seven stones in there. 3 in the right kidney, but it's costing me 900 bucks to do one, so not really wanting to fork out 1800 right now. My worry is that I'll get out of the workout habit while I'm recovering, but I hope I can jump back in.

Will catch up later- need to work out :)

So today we had this big meeting with our whole department and we had a mexican lunch. I was really good with my portions! I had one tortilla with reasonable amounts of everything. I was so proud of myself! I really wanted to eat more, especially when people were going to go eat seconds, but I refrained. Yay me!

    Yay you!! I am proud of you! It is so hard when you are with co-workers and they are all eating what they want and you don't feel like you can. I am going through the same thing at my job. I work at a childcare center, and since I started the program I have been offered pizza, they have ordered in Jalepeno Tree (mexican food), cake, and today they offered me donuts! It has been so hard. Last night, I had a bad night. I had worked 8 hrs, had gone to school 3hrs and then my husband and I got into an argument so I removed myself from the house to cool off. Oh my gosh! I wanted to find the nearest fast food resturant and just begin eating!!! I did go to Whataburger, but I ordered a 44 oz iced tea and left.
Anyway, I am proud because I know how hard is is to refrain and you did a great job.

Challenge Day

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

I am a member of the 1 Day Challenge group. Each day there is a challenge and it's great! Tomorrow's challenge is to write in my blog, so I'll do it a little early :) Well this is now week 2 of trying to follow my eating schedule and I haven't been doing very well lately! I got caught up in the birthday celebration thing and various people from work wanting to take me to lunch. I try super hard to find things not fried and that may be good for me but the calories are what are killing me. I continue to work out - I've gotten this under my good habit belt, and do it 5-6 times a week for about 30 minutes or more after work. So I know that if I keep at the food thing, I can get it - sooner or later!

I think, right now, the most important thing for me, is to remind myself that I can't be perfect. That if I slip, I can pick myself up and try again. I get so frustrated with myself real easily and I've been rather down because I haven't really lost anything- well what i lost has been gained again. I really need to stay focused and reward myself for going the distance. I think what is really going to matter this time is that my husband is being supportive. He's understanding that I need to eat different foods and joins in at dinner. I'm actually enjoying making great food with fruits and veggies to compliment.

Until next time!

    Keep up the great work! One thing that I found worked is measuring. I measure myself once every one to two weeks. Usually if you don't lose any weight you will lose inches because of all the exercise. That makes the blow of not losing weight because of water retention not such a hard pill to swallow. Just a thought :)

Ok, the weight is supposed to go down, not up! I'm sure part of it is the birthday celebrations, but it's time to get back to business. I'm a little unhappy with this but will keep on trucking.
