Week Seven Weigh-In

Thursday, February 20, 2014

I'm down another pound this week for a total of 10.6 pounds lost since January 2.

My blood sugar is great. Can't wait to get it tested in a couple of weeks and see how I have done on my own without the Metformin. Still not drinking diet pop. Also, my sleep is much improved, but I still need to work at what I do when I'm up in the middle of the night. Starting an inner monologue about how stressful this week is going to be is NOT the right thing to do at 4am...

For the past two weeks I have been eating less meat. In fact, I went a whole week being meat-free except for a tiny chicken salad wrap I had at a workshop. My cholesterol intake and sodium intake have been nearly perfect as a result. Less processed foods, more fruits and veggies. I routinely get 9 to 10 servings of produce daily now.

Today is a horrible day. Right in the middle of a tough week at work, it is the 12th anniversary of my step-father's suicide. Mother posted something about it on Facebook this morning, and I'm a bit of a mess as a result. He was very, very sick (with severe depression and psychosis) and there was nothing we could do for him.

And given how busy work is right now, my only goal for the week ahead is to hang in there!

    Keep up the good work!

    Hugs as you navigate today. The anniversary of a death can be tough. Its ok to take a few minutes and grieve if you need. Try not to let your emotions dictate your progress today.
