tracking again

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

With the last few weeks being full of pain, I just stopped weighing my food and tracking it. I have been staying on the way I eat, but tracking is always a good idea. So now that I feel improvement I am going to try to get here every day and track. Get back into my old routine. It is positive reinforcement every time I stay within my carb goal, water goal, and calorie goal.

finally improving

Saturday, March 08, 2014

I am finally feeling better from the fibro flare. About 4 days now that my legs no longer buckle and I have been able to put the cane aside again. The pain is so much less! This was a long one. It is also above freezing today, a second day in a row! Where I am, it has not been above freezing for 5 weeks, mostly single digits to teens. This is the coldest winter I can remember. Snow is no big deal, but single digits, below zero, and wind chills into the below teens... everyone I know is saying, they are done! Even the winter lovers are done. I just want to see green.

    I am glad you are feeling better! We have had a record setting winter this year and several Arctic Blasts. It was nice to be in service today and have it be above 30 degrees. The sun was shining, it was nice. I am a winter girl, it is my favorite season, but I am wanting to see green too!

Take care!

In a lot of pain

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

I have fibromyalgia and it has been pretty stable for awhile now. But it flared up super bad over a week ago and I am in agony and feeling weak in the legs so I do not move around a lot. I am still eating right tho! I do some slow movements when the pain meds kick in, since sitting still may feel good, in the end it only makes things worse. I just wish I wasn't so weak in the legs, they buckle without warning. Makes me afraid of walking. Back to using my cane for now, but it is always temporary; the flares do ease. I just have to wait it out. But any wait is too long a wait!

happy doctor

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I was 22 pounds less than my last visit and my cholesterol was below 200 for the first time ever. My good cholesterol was high and my bad was low. My triglycerides where a little above normal but that goes with the low thyroid so she was unconcerned. My sugar was fine, my blood count was perfect. She could not have been happier. Neither could I! I love getting a good medical report.

Hmm, same weight for 2 weeks

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

I hate it when my body seems to stall out on the scale. But I have noticed a change. I look like I lost weight. I actually see it in the mirror now. So my body seems to be pausing and readjusting. If it needs to do that, fine, but I want it do go back to losing again. I am sure I will. I see my doctor for a physical Friday and it doesn't matter what I weigh, she will be glad it isn't what it was 3 months ago. I think she will be surprised!

    One thing I notice when I hit a plateau was that my sodium was way too high. So as an experiment I stayed under the recommended 2300 mg per day for two weeks and it resulted in a 17 pound weight loss. Of course it was mostly water weight.

    Yes...what Celeste' said!

Congrats on the weight loss success thus far. Don't fret about what appears to be a stall...it takes time for our bodies to readjust.

    We all agree. Remember that fat and muscle weigh the same, but fat takes up 4 times as much space. so if you are gaining muscle from working out (just saying) then the weight will remain the same, while your body or inches show a difference. I stayed the same for nearly 3 months, but went down 3 clothing sizes in that time. Dont fret, and DONT give up.

    Larissa is right, plateaus happen. I would sometimes stay the same for 2 weeks and then see a drop. I know you won't get discouraged, you will keep going!

    I hope you get a good number on the scale at your doctor... and plateaus happen. Just keep pushing! *hugs*
