Today is weigh in day and I did well this week. In feeling despondent for a couple of weeks and general not feeling well for a long while I fell off the wagon. However it was always in the back of my mind. Then I got a fatty liver report in which I have been given 3 months to get my colesteral down. Research leads me to know I must be active in Spark, Losing weight and exercise is the key here. If it means I can do without more meds then I am for it. I also discovered some interesting things in this research. Metamucil is good to lower your colesteral. I like it. Tastes good and I mix it thick so it is kinda like ice cream.

With the adrenal issue most chemical are not good. So I switch to tea. Make myself some every morning to use later in the day. I just get so worn out. I continue to fight my way through the day. Giving up is not a option. emoticon

Choices I made some days were not eating the main entrée and going for sun butter, celery, raisins. So good and yummy. I work as a school cook. This year we are changing to lots of fresh veggies. It takes longer to eat them. I have noticed that my coworkers will wait or just take longer eating now. And I know they are watching me with my food choices. I even passed on beef nachos. full of processed cheese.

Going forward to the 2nd week of success. It has taken years to get here. I however must remember which I have to walk at night I must avoid the concrete. I did that friday and knees gave me fit next day. So I must find a good flashlight.

    All those steps will lead to success and improved momentum. As a school cook you have such an opportunity to affect kids and adults in their food choices without even realizing it. The power of observation can be a strong motivator for those seeking to improve themselves-congrats on being a positive role model!

    It can feel great to make the big changes, but if you get tired fast, the shorter exercises are just as good for you. Jump back in and go for it!
