Days 12-15 My how time flies and feeling exhilarated!
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Time sure flies - seems like every time I blink, three or four more days have gone by and I haven't blogged - ugh. I didn't get in as much walking this weekend as I had hoped, but I did get some in everyday so that's a plus! And I got lots done around the house that had been neglected far too long so I feel like it was a very accomplished weekend!
As for feeling exhilarated - well, what a day so far!! I woke up this morning and it was my weigh-in day. I decided when I started back on this journey that I would not become scale obsessed so my decision is to weigh-in only once every two weeks. So far so good with that! Well the good thing is the scale moved - not much, but it did move - down 2.2 lbs yay! But the even bigger news was I took my measurements (and I take a lot of them!) and I was down a combined total of 10.5 inches woot!! It felt SO good!!
In addition to the losses this morning, I was feeling a bit anxious because today was the day I was going to meet my new Endocrinologist - when I left the appointment - more exhilaration! I LOVED him!!!!! He was attentive, responsive, never condescending, explained past thyroid scan results in detail (something the original Dr didn't even come close to doing - probably because he didn't really understand himself!). It felt SO good to explain my past Dr. related frustrations and have acknowledgement from a specialist in the field that he understood the frustrations and didn't understand some of the responses I had received in the past either. It was AWESOME! So he naturally requested blood work so we have current numbers, and included some tests that I have never had on my thyroid before, so I went straight to the lab on the way back to work and got it done! I go back next month to get the results and see where we go next ... I can't wait!!! One more step forward!!
All of these positive things happening today just reassure feelings within myself that I can and will make this my year - my successful year ....
and with that, a motivational quote then it's off to take my afternoon break (walk)...
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." ~Thomas A. Edison
You said it Thomas ...
Best to you all on your journey!!
