WHO!! took my common sense??

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I absolutely knew better than to try chili this soon....but silly me did it anyway.......well 3 bites and my abdomen revolted......cramped up real good to tell me NO MORE OF THAT STUFF!!!

It is now in the garbage.....sure won't do that again for at least 4 more months.......Dr. said it could take up to 6 months for my inside to heal...

Think of your weight as you do your utility (electric) bill........get sloppy and it goes it closely and it goes down....

    Be careful what you eat, you don't need your stomach revolting against your brain. Great analogy!

    I do hope you are feeling better. That was a great comparison and I know you will be winning at the losing game!

    I reviewed your blogs to see what I missed, I memorize what I read. But could not see why you cannot eat chili. Did you have a medical procedure on any part of your digestive system or have acid reflux?

"You take the good, You take the bad, and there you have the Facts of Life"

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Had a fairly good report from the doctor this morning.

1...blood pressure is good

2. heart is good------stopped the Cardizam

3. feet are swollen more---increased the diuretic

4. weight was up 2.2 pounds-------see above note

5. don't have to return for 6 months

6 recheck of B 12 and hemoglobin drawn---report to be called in a few days.

All in all not a bad visit....besides the doctor is cute (and married)

    Glad you had good health report. B12 and B6 are as important to metabolism and losing weight as drinking water.

2013 GOALS

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

These are my goals for 2013:

1. one pound per week which would be 52 pounds during 2013

2. walk 5 of 7 days ( and actually get outside and do it) outside when weather permits it....take DJ walking to strengthen his legs as he is having more and more difficulty getting up

3. stay within the 1200 to 1500 calorie range--maybe even lowering my calorie range

4. blog progress every 2 weeks

Have you made goals yet??

    emoticon emoticon Howdy! from a very cold DFW area of Texas!

I've made some goals, but I'm not decided exactly how to put them down in the order I want to achieve them. I'm starting on my eating challenge today. I still have quite a ways to go to reach the goal weight my doctors want me to weigh. Please read my page to learn about me.

Let's keep each other's backs and we can do anything.

Good luck and great success on all of your goals! emoticon emoticon

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Thursday's Weigh In

Friday, December 21, 2012

I was down 1.2 pounds on Thursday when I weighed in........some of the 2 pounds regained the previous week by eating hi sodium meals.....

Plan to do as well if not better this week......which isn't off to such a great start.....had a roasted chicken breast on 9 grain honey wheat from Subway, then granddaughter made taco salad for supper.....under calories but over on sodium...
