WOW So happy I lost more weight!

Friday, August 16, 2013

I was going to write about my zen hot tub experience, or my spiritual/fitness retreat over the weekend at Tahoe, or about how I am loving swimming 2 hours a day, but instead I want to write about losing 7 more pounds yesterday at the doctor!

I am really pleased, I was driving to the doctor yesterday after 2 hours of water exercise and I really was having some mental obsession time going on between my ears ~ I kept thinking, OK I don't think I have lost more weight, Ok I probably did NOT lose any more weight, but maybe I did not gain any too, well, if I did gain ok at least I still do not have to take insulin anymore, and maybe I did lose a little weight, but I don't feel like I have, I don't know, I don't know, I don't freaking KNOW!!!!

By the time I got to the doctor I was pretty worked up, and I had to WAIT! It was agony. About 45 minutes of waiting, more mental gymnastics of the negative nature, people kept getting called in who arrived after me, I finally told the receptionist, I have been here 45 minutes, I think they forgot me, of all days! Exasperation!!!!

So I got called in and got my shingles shot, yep it is time now to do that, ugh, I do not like shots, never have, that's why 4 injections of insulin per day were so hard for me!

Finally after the shot I went to get on the scale I always weigh on, and never more than 1 time a month and ONLY for accountability..... and I practically cart wheeled off the scale, I had lost 7 more pounds! WOO HOO! Golly, I said out loud, I lost 7 more pounds, I was sooooooo surprised.

I have been building muscle, its now all over my body, we do weight training right in the water daily, and over the weekend in Tahoe I did not swim at all, too cold, so between no exercise for 3 days and a heavy dinner the night before (all Paleo tho) at Outback I was SURE I had blown any chance of losing weight, but nope, I lost 7 more, so now in 4 months I have lost 27 pounds, which I am very pleased with, I don't want to lose it any quicker than this, in a couple of years I may be able to lose the majority of what I need to lose, maybe, who knows.

What I do know if I feel about 100% better and my diabetes is now under control for the first time in about 20 years and I am doing better, one day at a time.

Thank YOU!!!! World, people, program, God, friends, family, swimming, paleo, prayer and more!

Love, Jill

About 10 days ago, playing guitar with my 3 buddies, so much good fun!!!

    Hi Finishingrace....... how did I get to the point of weighing once a month only???

it wasn't easy ..... I just had to tho, the scale was making me nuts, has cost me success more than once in the past, and just causes an obsessive thinking syndrome in me that is not self-loving. So I gave it up except once a month at the doctors for accountability and to make sure I am doing something right with my food and exercise.

I still am terribly bothered when anticipating weighing, like I was sure that I had not lost any weight but I did....... go figure!

    Jill, congratulation on your most recent loss. I can't even think about only weighing once a month--how did you get to that place?
