In the midst of another day without cheats. I lost 2.2 lbs last night, and now back down to 223.4. I walked 90 minutes today instead of 60, and feel good, and even contemplating playing some basketball tonight, if i continue to feel this good. My shoulders had been aching when I used to walk, and I attributed it to pushing myself hard, but in the hospital, they told me it was from excess water. No aching shoulders today. I may go and do 30 minutes or so of basketball, if I can get a ride.
My brother goes to school 8-5, and then has a parks and recreation committee meeting at 6:30. They are meeting to set the policy, and pick programs of what they will do for the next few years, and plan how to pay for them. He has been on this committee twice now, and loves it, but it leaves me with no car... btw he is down to 295. He went to the doctor yesterday, and had lost 56 lbs since his last visit 4 months ago. His doctor was so happy. He walked him out at the end, and was bouncing, with a big smile on his face..lol. My brother eats a very carby diet, and is down 112 lbs, so we both have lost a lot of weight on our respective diets. Just find one, and be as strict as you can, and patient.
I am cooking lunch/ dinner right now, and cut out my green beans to add cheese again. That bumps my fat to 69%, but more importantly, is what i ate yesterday. I did keep the mushrooms with my 6 eggs this morning. I now plan to lose 2.2 lbs tomorrow, and will blame it on the mushrooms, if I don't..lol. It feels great to lose a kilo, eating 2700 calories a day.
I am reading The Silmarillion right now by J.R.R. Tolkien. Probably going to take a nap later, till my ride shows up, and then come home, eat supper, and watch Bones, and Survivor. I got to bed at midnight last night, which is early, but my brother's coughing woke me up at 5:30 a.m.
At the doctor's I met my doctor in the lobby, and she gave me cholesterol #s from the hospital. She was very happy to let me know my HDL was up to 39, which made her feel better about cutting my cholesterol meds. Total was 109, LDL was 54, and HDL was 39, with triglycerides in the 130's. I go back in to see her next Tuesday. Last time I was in, was at the end of August, when I was 252, so hoping to lose at least 30 lbs. between visits.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.
