Today's Inspirational Quote

Monday, June 09, 2014

Have a blessed day, everyone!

On a personal note, which I never put out least RARELY. I want to thank all those of you out there that are so regular at writing your personal blogs. I read a lot of them and had not realized right away just how much they help. Many of you have been talking about changing your goals and it has been nagging at me for some time. I haven't changed mine in awhile. I absolutely HATE the scale and have dh weigh me every so often and NOT tell me what it is. Same for today but I happened to look down at the scale before the number flashed off.

I have been within the same 2-5 pound range for many, many months so thought maybe this should be my "maintenance" weight even though it is just about the healthy BMI number for me. I'm 66 (next month) after all, so thought because I'm "older"...well, that is not true apparently because I decided emoticon . I like the way my clothes fit now and all but I really do want that healthy number. My doctor loves that I stay here but I know he will love it more if it is technically "healthy".

So, all of you that are such an inspiration to me, I want to say a BIG emoticon and give out BIG emoticon your positive attitude and thinking has finally rubbed off on me! emoticon

God bless you all!

One of my favorite quotes!

I am also trying to figure out what my weight ought to be. I'm at the top of my healthy BMI range, trying to stay in that "healthy" area. I mistakenly thought I'd keep dropping and be mid-range (and out of the Bannockburn challenge) by now!

    Outstanding new resolution there, Gaye! It's never too late to take care of yourself... and I can envision your doctors' grins... 'cause I've seen mine... they really, really get a charge out of folks who actually *do* what they recommend.

    You are doing good Gaye and if you want to change you goal--go for it. I know that you can do it. I am still working on mine. Yes, I read lots of blogs and respond to some. Some I just get encouragement from. I love reading your blogs too. Thanks.

    I definitely believe in a "maintenance range" and only you can decide where you are comfortable, healthy and happy.
I never really expected to be where I am today again; it's a bonus of my deciding to make healthy choices. I too hate the scale, but having the boundaries of a "range", for me 5# over or under goal, allows me some flexibility without getting discouraged. I did have a nemesis (place where I get stuck) weight of 140, so I lowered my goal by a couple of pounds so I wouldn't allow myself to see it. Top of goal range is now 138; it's a silly mind game but it works for me.
I love the quote! This is definitely more than a passing interest. It's my health!

    True. I too get an impetus from other's blogs. They usually appear when my spirits or motivation is lagging. Guess I'll look at my goals too.

    No matter what the scale says, you are an inspiration. Congrats on maintaining so well. Chances are your body is content where it is at. Don't let the numbers get you down. Your doctor is right to be pleased. HUGS!
