July 18: Dr Appt.

Monday, July 18, 2011's time for the three month update! Drum roll PLEASE! It's official. I have gotten rid of another 11 pounds! Yes, that's ELEVEN pounds!

I know now that I'm NOT going to make my original goal of 137 by August. HOWEVER, I am happy with the progress that I'm making. I have decided that I am looking at the long term and not on the short term.

My A1c is holding steady and that is with a drop in insulin dosage! The insulin is now down to 14U in the morn and 13U at night. Going down.

I'm going to keep with the walks. Yes, I did make some changes on the walk timing. Thanks to the hot Arizona desert weather, I now split my walks. I walk at least 5,000 steps/2.5miles in the morn and the same at night. I aim for 10,000 total or no less than 8,000 steps.

It's about time to start cleaning out the closet. It's out with anything over a size 16. I'm keeping some of the larger shirts for yard work and outfit options.

Next new goal is to start aiming for more blog posts! Wish me luck on that one.

Now to change the weight dump goals. Keep sparking people! It really works!!!!

    Sounds like you had a great doctor appt. - I just went for mine this week too and my doctor was happy with my blood pressure, no weight gain and great cholesterol levels so I'm sure you are as happy and relieved as I was! You are doing wonderful with your walks in that heat - I've been walking inside around the house with this heat. Have a super week!
