100-249 SparkPoints 176

keeping with the program

Friday, August 16, 2013

I may not have lost much weight. The 140 appearing on the scale magically turned into 148 in a day: salt, bloat, lunch, whatever. I also still feel kind of lousy 100% of the time. That could possibly be because I decided to have a child at 38. Nevertheless, I decided to be proud of myself for staying on track with my program.

That's right, I have not binged or missed workouts. I'm still experimenting with wheat-free. (It's actually been easy--except for chicken nuggets. That is very strange.) I am not letting my hurt arm hinder me from cooking. I have not given up on myself.

I've stayed with the blog too. It's the best way to keep a handle on the all-consuming nature of my weight loss. I just noticed someone has a private blog. That seems to have pros and cons. The pros are that it's basically an online diary. That might be an idea for me; I'd have a place to talk out the nitty gritty of things that are not so closely related to diet & exercise. The cons are that I do like having a possible audience. I'm fairly shy so I rarely let out this much when speaking to people. It's so great to get feedback and it's always positive!! Hmm, I'll have to think about that one because sometimes marriage could use its own blog. ;)

But today's blog was about me keeping with my program, and I am very proud of myself.

    And you should be proud. We all have setbacks, so we pick our ourselves and drive on.

    I am on Chemo for Lymphoma and one of the medicine in the cocktail is an anabolic steroid which drive the blood sugar sky-high. Weird, right?
