Goal Achieving Express---day 2

Monday, October 03, 2011

I feel that I am off to a good start on my goals, of course weigh in on Thursday will tell the real story.

I did well eating at the buffet today---only took small bites of items, ate slow, and got full. Drank lots of water too. For supper, I made whole wheat spaghetti with ground turkey and green beans.

Progress report will be either Thursday afternoon or Friday.

Sunday is the day

Friday, September 30, 2011

We have been gifted with another beautiful day.

As I suspected, my weight gain was fluid. I poured down the water yesterday and am down 4 pounds this morning.

Sunday October 2, will be the beginning of my October goals. I thought Sunday was a good day to start since it is the beginning of the week.

Boy did God even know what He was doing when He placed the October goals on my mind!!!!

My weight went up 4.6 pounds in ONE week.......UGH!!!!!

I am not swollen a lot. I am very stiff and slightly puffy with sluggish movements.

I did eat quite a bit of pumpkin bread---which is all gone now and I won't be making more for quite a while---maybe November as a reward for reaching my goals. I love pumpkin bread and don't use good sense when I have it in the house. The same with other quick breads.

My new goals will begin Sunday so I have a couple of days to see if this is water weight (which I think it is) and comes off like it went on. I do swell up quickly.

Also, I ate out 3 times last week. I thought I was watching what I ate fairly well---I guess not. I did have grilled chicken from KFC on Tuesday which may be the cause of my gain. I only ate one piece (1/2 a breast) that didn't have skin on it and 2 sections of a wing.

    Bet it is fluid retention and will be gone in no time. Just keep committing every day to the Lord and allow Him to direct you! You will do this!

Goals for October

Monday, September 26, 2011

Here we are closing in on the end of September. Have you met your goals for Sept? Did you set goals for Sept? Have you made October goals? One pound per week will mean that 10 to 12 pounds will be gone by Christmas---now wouldn't that be grand?

I have not displaced the 5 pounds that was my goal for Sept. I did dispose of 2 pounds for the month and 1 inch off my hips and waist.

My October goal is 8 pounds---5 for October and 3 from September. This is a long reaching goal that I am going to set my mind to work towards.

I am eating better and still should decrease the size of my portions. I eat a lot of vegetables but one can have too large of a portion of even the good stuff. This is my main problem---too large of a portion. If one peach or apple is good then 2,3 or 4 is even better---right???? NOT!!!

My October goals:

1.. down 8 pounds by Oct. 31

2. proper portion sizes

3. walk outside (as long as the weather holds) 20 to 30 minutes 5 of 7 days

These will be achieved by:

1. posting my official TOPS weight every Thursday and measure waist and hips Oct. 6 & 20 and post results

2. blog each Friday or Monday about progress and/or problems

3. get DJ into the habit of going for a walk so he will bug me until I take him ---he can be quite persistent....malamutes are stubborn dogs

Feeling Better

Thursday, September 01, 2011

B 12 level done Monday Aug. 29 was normal so injections are monthly now.

Still having heat issues. Temps from 90 to 103 just wear me out. Looking forward to cooler temps next week. If this turns out to be true, I will be outside a lot trimming trees and weed whacking.

Talking with the pastor of the former church went really well. He is such an understanding man. I hope the other members will be the same. I didn't leave because of any discord or anything like that, I just wanted a more active church. I really like this church and have gotten involved with a few things already. And they have a fantastic library that I have already made use of.

My weigh isn't going down very fast--seems to do the down and up thing. This heat swells me up a lot. My feet have been so puffy the past 2 or 3 weeks. Hopefully cooler weather will take care of that.

With my B 12 getting up to normal I am doing more things. I still tired easily but recover quicker with a nap.

God is watching over me and I love it.
