Stupid scale, I kicked it under the bed.

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Stupid scale, I kicked it under the bed. Working hard and it didn't budge. Fortunately, Spark Coach today was about that very problem. So here is my list of ways spark is working for me that isn't the number on a scale. I think some of this is the crappy winter weather around here. Minus 20C and today, sleet and slush when walking the dog.
Positives:
Doctor reduced my diabetic medication. Woo Hoo
My blood sugar AIC is normal and has been for 6 months
Overall I have lost 20 pounds and 5 sizes
No pain going up the stairs, one day I even ran up them!
Enjoy exercising.
Have lost inches.
Skin excellent (bit dry in the winter)
Facing problems head on instead of "swallowing my problem"

My goals:
Meal planning and following the divided plate method of portion control
Yeah Sparking!

    Good for you, weight is irrelevant, gaining muscle and losing fat is all that matters. You can make huge improvements. Lower carbs enough and you'll get off diabetic meds completely. emoticon

    You certainly have made lemonade out of your lemons. Great attitude. Keep up the great job. Always more pros than cons when working towards a healthy lifestyle. Have a wonderful way.
