Nope, I didn't make it to the 150s...

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Although I did go down to 160.3 last week, and I weigh 161 now. That's OK though. All in due time, the weight WILL come off and then a new battle will begin to get off the 150s. emoticon Why aren't we ever happy with ourselves? It would be nice to accept ourselves as we are, but that is NOT the solution for our health. I have to keep reminding myself -- one day at a time, one pound at a time.

    it's tough to gain when you think you'll be in the next 10's but you're right it is all in due time :) there is always next week and the weeks after that.

    Well, I did not make it either - was hoping for a 2 lb loss, but got one! I was happy with the one pound, as I had spent the weekend visiting my daughter at college and had dinner at the sister-in-law; a wonderful cook - butternut squash and cheese ravioli dressed in a brown butter sauce....yum!

Slow and steady - celebrate the little things and laugh! Have a great week and if you need some support shout out to me on my sparkpage.

I can't wait to get off the 160s!

Friday, November 06, 2009

On July 18th, I officially went off the 170s and since then I have been battling to lose the weight in the 160s. Right now, I weigh 160.3 lbs and will be EXTREMELY happy to get off the 160 to say goodbye to this weight forever. I will do it! emoticon

I was tempted to put my new weigh-in today but decided to wait till Sunday in case I can do this by then.

October was nice to me!

Sunday, November 01, 2009

My weigh in was very good today. In October I have lost an overall of 7.3 lbs and an overall of 12.5 inches in this last month! Needless to say, I am happy with the results and will continue along this path.

Although I still have not yet fully mastered the carbohydrate intake, I have diminished my consumption without hurting myself in the process. Everything is paying off.

This is it... Tribute to Michael Jackson

Saturday, October 31, 2009

You may ask yourself what a 61 y.o. has to do with MJ? Goodness gracious, I practically grew up with him. I was a mere teen when he started singing ABC with his brothers, and my own daughters grew up dancing to his tunes as well as my oldest grand-daughter who is 16. Anyway, last night they showed the movie in Dakar and my husband, my best friend Houma, my niece and I went to see this. It was really nice to see the real Michael in action. It showed what a sweet person he was. So humble too. After the movie, we all danced for nearly three hours to music dating back in the 60s up to present. It was fun and we all enjoyed it (and I wasn't even tired -- pays off to exercise).

What a loss to the world but at least his legend lives on in his music

Cholesterol is below 200 for the first time in years!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

On August 26, 2009 I did a cholesterol test and it came back with 250 g/l! I was shocked because I had never had it so high before. My husband said that it must have been even higher before but because I was exercising so much, that it must have come down some. Anyway, I redid a test yesterday and got a 53 point drop in my cholesterol -- yes, it was 197 g/l. emoticon The first thing I did is call my husband to tell him and the next I am telling you all. I am so happy to be off the 'danger' zone. Exercising and watching my food intake is paying off.

    Isn't that great!!! I had a similar experience with my triglycerides. They went from 205 to 123. All due to exercise and cutting way back on refined foods.

Good for you!
