I haven't been checking in here lately, but I'm still hanging in there. I'm happy to say I've been soda free since the last week of October! Woohoo! I'm still working on increasing my water intake and decreasing my sweet tea intake, but it's a start! I'm also still slowly cutting back on how much sugar I add to my sweet tea. I've tried using splenda, but it just doesn't work for me. So hubby and I will just gradually cut back until we can take it almost unsweet. He's a skinny guy, but we've both gotten to where we don't buy any junk food when we do the grocery shopping anymore either. On a rare occasion we might get a candy bar or bag of chips, but we try not to keep it in the house anymore at least. We're getting there. And I've been doing a pretty good job avoiding the vending machine just outside my office door most days.
I'm also starting to feel much better now that I'm up to my full dose of my Topamax my doctor wanted me on for my migraines. I've had very few of them since being to the full dose, as opposed to getting them almost daily. I'm on a few other medications too, so all that combined has really helped me get back to me again. I feel it helping me get some energy back too. So hopefully in no time I'll be back at my Wii again getting my sweat on! LOL All I'm doing now is I try and take a walk on my lunch break at work when the weather isn't bad.
My goal for this year is to lose 25 pounds by the end of summer, and 50 by the end of the year. That's pretty obtainable, right?
