This is tough, so much has happened since my last blog.... I will start by listing my goals for the next 12 weeks:
1- To get my new pedometer working! (needs a battery)
2- Drink 8 - 10 cups of water a day.
3- Use the nutrition tracker, stay in my recommended calorie range.
4- Move!!! I want to get back to 10,000 steps a day, pass 8 miles on my elliptical machine, complete the GOYB and GOYBD challenges....
5- Lose 25 lbs...
6- To get my numbers in line, (diabetic) I want to get to 6.5 to 7, and keep my blood sugars 70-120, then to be able to go OFF my meds, AGAIN!!!
7- To have my liver functions improve.
8- To be able to work more hours, and keep feeling better! To function better in All areas of my life! I stay busy, but to not have it be such a chore to get up or down! Little things like that are something we should never take for granted!
9- To wear a size below 20w, (I have some 18 jeans hanging around for incentive)
10- To feel life more, I have been so sick, it's been hard to see beyond the here and now. I am improving, and feel it's time to dive in and save my life!
* To get all of the hardware out of my left ankle... that is a story in itself! I cancelled the needed surgery that should have taken place Aug 14th, because of all of the overwhelming health issues I have been dealing with... it will be nice to not be in pain all of the time!*
I need to get below 220, for personal reasons; ok I will tell you, I haven't weighed that since I have had my baby... 22 years ago. Ouch, that hurt to admit! I have been known to say; as I am patting my belly...if I would just have this baby I would look so much better! It's real over due!!!
Then it will be the wonderful goal of getting to 199!!!!!!!!!! Then to take it 10 lbs at a time.
My big goal is to get at my healthy weight, and maintain it for a year, then treat myself to some much needed "body tucking"!! My Husband knows just how much I HATE my belly area, and has said he will make that happen, so, we will see!
It is scary, I have found that the thought of losing weight is uncomfortable, it sounds strange, but, to lose one's security blanket is freighting! I have never felt like this was me, I had never had to watch my weight when I was younger, with life happening; I subconsciously built a barrier, and need to like myself again!
So as my user name says it all....HEREWEGO!
