Merry Christmas! Wishing everyone a peaceful day.
It's been a while since I posted. I've achieved my goal weight and more. As has been the pattern in the past, I struggle to maintain. I'm continuing to lose weight albeit more slowly, but still trending downward. I struggle to find the right balance. My fear is that if I change my diet too much I'll start to gain which is what has happened before.
I had my annual checkup on Monday. I'm looking forward to seeing the results of my labwork-especially cholesterol since that has been slightly elevated in the past. I did get a call from the doctors office yesterday telling me that my sodium level is low. They asked that I limit my intake of water to 6 glasses per day and get retested next week. I have to say that I was not expecting that! I have to think it's because I eat so few packaged foods that are generally loaded with sodium.
If anything over the past few months I've become more committed to the Vegan lifestyle. What I'd like to concentrate on in 2014 is developing an approach to exercise. I'd like to get to the point where I'm naturally moving more throughout the day.
