No more monthly Dr appts for me! This scared chick has sprouted wings & is soaring high!
The doctors are thrilled with my progress & said keep doing what your doing. I've got this. They did one more blood test just to ensure the adjustment they made with my Thyroid was effective. Last time they lowered my Thyroid I spent the night in the ICU. This time we did it slower and it's fine.
My thinking has shifted. Instead of looking at food that I can and cannot have, I look at it as nothing is off limits. I can take a bite if I choose to. Everything is a choice. For some strange reason that shift in thinking, for me, takes away the deprived/shamed feeling I got before. The nutritional tracker has opened my eyes. I have so much more energy when I eat within my ranges.
The Fitbit & the motivation & inspiration I get from my SP family is priceless! You have taught me so much & I will continue to learn. The mistake I made last time I was here was I met my goal then stopped utilizing my tools. I ended up 10 years later overweight with serious health issues. I've learned from that mistake. I used to be so weak I was worried about how I would get back home if I walked down the street. After several baby steps and the supervision of my doctors, I now range 10 - 12 Fitbit miles 6 days a week with a full time desk job. I completed a 5k & 10k & I'm looking forward to my 1st Color Run in August.
I got my husband a Fitbit for his upcoming 50th birthday! The whole family & friends are getting healthy. It's contagious & I couldn't be happier!
Words cannot express how grateful I am for your support! Thank you! You are amazing!
