One pound at a time

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

That's how you loose one pound at a time. At this point I am loosing about one pound a week. I am not sweating the scale as every scale you weigh on weighs different. My gastric doc's scale is weighing me from a lower start weight than I was when I had surgery. It is the approval start weight I gained 7 more pounds over Christmas. My regular Doctors scale weighs from my true start weight.

Now for today I am at 164. I had the option of Run/Walking in the Athena division of the Woodstock 5 K. You have to weigh over 160 and must weigh in. I chose not to do this. 1. I didn't know my weight could have a sudden drop, 2. I am not that person anymore even though I am at or around 160.

I had a dream where a real runner from a group of runners chose to run/walk with me and laugh off the friends who complained I'd take to long to go with the group. This person told me you are going to be a runner and I will walk/go with you and I will guide you. Wow, what a dream. So in writing this I will tell you I realize that was God! He has always walked with me and guided me and if he says I will someday be a runner I will. Powerful feeling this morning. Funny I told my husband this dream a few days ago and it made me feel good, but had not wrote it down or processed it till now.

So I go off to work this morning having not had time for my morning run/walk, but my shoes are in the car for a mall walk in the middle of the day, knowing God has more in store for me. He may send me a human guide and He will always be my compass and guide in life.

How's that for starting the day!

    I have lost about 1 pound a week over the last 4 months by watching my food intake and being more active. My wakeup call was A1C went up 1 point and the doctor wanted to put me on medication. I pleaded with him to give me several months to loose weight and get the A1C down. 4 months later I've lost 22 pounds. My next goal is to get in a regularly scheduled exercise program. I am active and busy buy just can't get into exercising. emoticon
