Yippee! I finally got my cholesterol results yesterday. This is after three months of being on no medication. I don't know the total cholesterol- she always breaks it down for some reason. Anyway, my good cholesterol is at 45, which is still a little low, but it did go up from what it was before. My bad cholesterol is 110 and the beginning of high is 120, so I can't complain. I know I could do better, but this means I don't have to get rechecked for 6 months and no meds. :)

    Congratulations!!! I am so proud of you. You have done such a great job. I can't wait to have new cholesterol testing done. I am hoping that it will be down. Mine was over 200 last time. Keep up the good work.

So my clothes are falling off of me now! So I went to one of my fav stores today to try and find some new clothes. I got size 4 pants! I'm down two sizes :) Yay me!!


September here I come

I feel totally recovered from my lithotripsy. It was pretty bad on Thursday, but I was actually in a lot less pain than the last time I had this done. Final test will be an xray at the end of the month to check the progress, but I've seen lots of stone particles coming out, which is good.

So tomorrow it's back to work and back to working out. I really slacked off in August for many reasons. It's back to the grind! And I'm determined to lose the rest of my weight this month. Even have a second goal of 115 pounds. Just have to reach my first goal!

Keep it up!

I'm still here

Monday, August 27, 2007

It's been awhile since I've written in my blog. There have been a lot of awful personal things I've been dealing with and I've really struggled with incorporating my daily exercise in. I know the times that I do that I feel a lot better about things and about myself. I'm not too far away from my first goal, although I think this week will probably be a gain as it is about that time of the month. Although maybe I'll lose a bit since Thursday I have to have my lithotripsy. Not looking forward to that! For those of you who don't know, a lithotripsy is where they use shock waves to break up kidney stones. So I'm sure I'll be in some pain and not eating much. I hope that my recovery time won't be too long and I can get back to actually working out.

    Bless your heart! I didn't know you were having that done Thursday... I will be thinking about you all that day. Keep working out even though you are having a rough personal time. You will feel better about yourself--inside and out. Nothing compounds problems more than feeling bad about yourself. It just makes things worse. When you exercise, you focus the energy away from whatever the problem is for that short period of time.
You can do it!
Love ya,

Very rough week

Saturday, August 11, 2007

And don't think I see any light at the end of the tunnel for awhile. I can't get into it, but I'm having extreme personal problems right now. That, along with having to make a difficult decision whether to take another job, made me drop about 3 pounds. I really wasn't exercising at all for almost two weeks and today was the first time I have. I decided to stay in my job and I am determined to make it better for myself.

    Stress makes it harder to lose weight. (But not impossible:) Exercise is my key. It helps alleviete the stress which helps lose the weight. And I feel better too. I hope your job is ok. Keep on going.
