What the future holds

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Had to take my Mom to the doctor today and didn't have time for supper before church, the old me would have gone through a drive thru either before or after church but I talked myself out of it. My mom needed me to do some shopping for her while she was in the doctor's office so I got me a snack to hold me through church and even then was thinking of stopping somewhere after but I didn't. I started thinking of the future and about what life might be like if I get this weight off and talked myself right out of going to a fastfood place. Instead I came home made me a chicken sandwich on wheat bread and eat some grape tomatoes and cherries with it, woohoo. Hope I can keep this up! Things look really good right now for possibly getting off these meds. I forgot to take them the other day and when I realized it and checked my sugar thinking it would surely be over 200 it was only 167. Yea that's high but the way I used to eat if I hadn't had my meds all day it would go over 200 and possibly even get to the 300's. So anyway since eating better is making it go down I'm hoping that by getting the weight off I can control this diabetes with diet alone. My whole point of the blog though was basically that what the future may hold when I loss this weight looks better than any fast food.

    What an awesome accomplishment!!! I think looking to the future is great as it helps give us that nudge when we are struggling with the current day.

I hope you are able to get off of or reduce your medications. What an added bonus to feeling healthy and strong. :)

So happy that missing your meds didn't mess you up and hope that you are able to come off of them soon.

    What a great non scale victory you had! Not only with your great food choices but with you also reducing medications.


I like your idea of thinking about the future when you are making these choices. I may have to use that the next time I want to reach for something sweet.
