My How Time Flies

Friday, March 02, 2012

I didn't realize that it has been so long since I've blogged. I haven't been feeling too well so have just been doing minimum posting. I wanted to keep up with the groups. I have been made a leader on one of the teams I belong to. We had a leader who has been unable to post consistently. She is still a leader and offers valuable information when she is able to post.

My weight has been down and up, down and up. Last week I had flu like symptoms so I had a lot of chicken noodle soup. That kicked in my sodium intolerance so I swelled up therefore my weight went up.

My family is getting ready for an exciting time. My granddaughter and great granddaughter is moving here from Michigan. This is my youngest daughter's oldest child. Becky lived with me from 2002 until she went to Michigan to live close to her dad and other grandmother. Since she lost her job, she asked if they could live with me...she says, "Grandma, I wanna come home."

Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it..........hehehe...........I still have to do some updated reports....I'll do them when I feel better............thanks for all the support, kind words, and prayers...may God be with each of you...Elsie

A Letter From Head to Heart.........Heart's Answer

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Dear Heart,

I know how valuable you are to this body. I am asking for your co-operation in making us both healthier. Please work with me as I know all the things we need to do to get healthier and I would be grateful if you would help me to obtain this goal. Together we could shed a lot of this weight. So what do you say?

Sincerely......the Head

Dear Head,

Thank you for a very informative letter. I know that I have to get on the same page as you. It is so hard for me to get all this to sink in. I begin with the intent of co=operating with you then the world turns me astray. Sometimes I get a bad case of the "I Wants"....I want this thing..I want that thing. I know this isn't right or fair.

I am going to put more effort into this program with you. I will need lots of help keeping in this program/

I sure need to send the "I don't cares" to the curb and let the trashmen haul them away.

I will put more effort into following what you tell me to do..

Sincerely..........the Heart

My feet are still swollen from eating out twice this week and ready prepared food.

Not only are my feet swollen but my system is out of whack too.

Monthly Summary for January

Friday, February 03, 2012

Here goes for the whole month------some good, some not so good........all needs improvement

calories-----------above guidelines 4 times---------below guidelines 2 times

fat.......above guidelined 3 times........below guidelines 1 time

carbs......above guidelines 0 times..........below guidelines 4 times

protein.........above guideline..0 times.........below guidelines 2 times

fiber..........above guideline 0 times.........below guidelines 8 times

sodium.......above guidelines 6 times

weight down 1 pound for this weight down 6 pounds from Dec. 1....averaging 3 pounds per month.

Improvements to work on for February.........increasing fiber, decreasing sodium to be within guidelines 100%

calories, fat, carbs within guidelines 100%

because i have a sodium intolerance, this really surprised me. Some of the items that recorded high sodium didn't have the stated amount because I made them at home and left out the salt so the number of times isn't absolute. I can tell when I've gone over my sodium level because my hands get numb and I get dizzy----didn't have any of that this past month (that I can remember). My feet were swollen a couple of times indication fluid retention.

Now, I know what to work on for report after Feb. 29..
