NSV Of Great Proportions!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

06/01 (322) -2 = -20
06/08 (326)+4 = -16
06/15 (326) -0 = -16
06/22 (329)+3 = -13
06/29 (324) -5 = 18 again
JUNE total = 2 pound gain
07/06 (325) +1 = 17 pounds lost
07/13 (323) - 2 = 19
JULY lose total =
So I started the month of July already 1 pound up from June. I can deal with that because we (DH & I) are tweaking the whole healthy eating schedule.
For so many years I have panicked every time I tried to lose weight and ended with a gain instead. I have learned that the body is a strange creature. It has a mind of its own and no matter what you say or do, it will drop weight according to its time frame and NOT the time frame we feel is the right one. I have learned to CHILL, hold my breath, climb up on the scales, and DEAL with the numbers that appear...... OH, and keep trudging on!

I have learned that a half cup of pink grapefruit, 2 carrots, 1/2 cup oatmeal, promise spread, beans, a few grapes, garlic, Vitamin E, and vitamin C each day, can help to lower bad cholesterol and actually does! My cholesterol is down 32 points and my HDL is up by 4 points in just the last 3 months. THAT is amazing for me. So I guess you can call that a NSV (non scale victory) of GREAT proportions?!
