Week 3, Day 3. I only got in a 10 minutes session on the treadmill today. I've been having some pain in my right hip and will be going to the doctor on Monday to have it checked out. FBS today was 118. Down 1.7 lbs for the week!

You can often Google it and come up with sites that have numbers for various other activities. It's a best "guesstimate" but I like to see those numbers too.

Judy - I did hear back from the endrocrinologist and my dietitian. You were right...I have raised my calorie intake to 1300 - 1500. But I have gained weight. I am a loss of what to do. I have increased my exercise from 20 minutes of chair exercise to 55 minutes of chair dancing. The 24th I have an appointment with the bariatric surgeon and the dietitian. I guess I will see what they have to say. Plateau, maybe??

Slow but steady wins the race!

Week 3, Day 1

Very interesting.

I had a bacon burger last night for the first time in I don't know how long.

When I put it into the tracker it came up as somewhere between 800 and 1100 calories, and the only reason I didn't break my calorie count for the day was that I did a lot of walking - at least 7 miles.

Lo and behold, this morning I have the highest FPG I've had in a while.

Definitely can't outrun poor nutrition.

It looks like I'm starting week 3 today, but am confused on weeks. The goals are listed in Sun-Sat streak weeks, but I started this challenge on a Thurs., so can't seem to track my goals for a week to coincide with which challenge week I'm on. It's really confusing.

I did do more physical today, so that's good. #s are good this week.
It's challenging logging all this (maybe I'm trying to track too much - -kinda went all gung-ho)
How do you determine calories burned in certain workouts when it's not listed, anyone? Still trying to figure out fitness tracking.

Change the I to WE, and Illness becomes Wellness!

Thanks Judy F.

Cindy, NC

I have come to the realization that the scale is not my friend or foe...It is only the messenger!

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

ALICE - Has your endocrinologist given you a calorie limit of 1000 - 1300? You would advise you to check with her. I know the diabetes assoc. says NOT to eat less than 1200 calories or your body will go into starvation mode and hang on to all the food it can get. Also, when you aren't eating enough calories your pancreas will work over time trying to get your glucose up to where it does belong, thus it would account for your higher blood sugars. Are you eating your snacks between your meals? The snacks will also help to keep your blood sugars from spiking or crashing. Just some info for you to consider and bring to your endocrinologist on your next visit.

Judy - my endocrinologist has lowered my insulin because I am eating less. I am eating between 1000 - 1300 calories. and she said she did not want me to eat to keep up with the insulin. so as a result I am having higher and higher blood sugars. I just took it at 11pm and it was 333. 259 at dinner. and these were taken before meals. as a result I am feeling kinda sluggish - tired. so I don't know....I don't want to go any lower with my calories and I cannot do any more exercises than I do. emoticon

Thanks for asking. emoticon

LINDA - emoticon on keeping up with your food and logging while away for a couple of weeks!! That was emoticon . I have a feeling that you probably got more exercise than you think. Now you're getting back on track and that's great!! Keep up the good work!

I've been gone for a month already myself and another month to go before we get out of motel living and restaurant eating!! It's not an easy task - harder than what I thought with eating AND with exercises. But, tomorrow is another day as we say.

REMEMBER: When the scale seems to come to a halt, don't rely on that scale. Instead, look back and see how far you've already come, how much looser your clothes are fitting, how much more energy you have, how much better your FBSs are etc.

You are doing great!!

I have been away for a couple of weeks. Family really was demanding for a while, so now I am back.
I kept up on my food and logging, but exercise really suffered.
I am going back to water aerobics today and using the elliptical for 10 minutes everyday.
I totally skipped my strength training - back to that 3 days a week.
Blood sugar is not quite where I want it, but still not bad - averaging under 120 upon waking. I want it under 110 with an occasional day under 100.
Weight loss is slow - but I feel like my body is ready to shed some pounds.

goal is to be able to walk again

hi! i also have a serious problem with portion control. i don't use dinner plates any more, just the saucer and salad/ bread-n-butter plate. like you i started with 10 minutes. there are some really good dvd's that have seated training, some right here on spark! "coach nicole" has some really great videos. and i have to say, you weight loss is truly impressive and inspiring! so nice to meet you!

emoticon I am late today. Judy - I eat pretty much the same thing and measure it. I also use lean cuisine and weight watcher meals because I do have a problem with portion control. I started with 10 minutes of chair exercises and now am up to 15 minutes. I am in a wheel chair so I don't move very well. I am just glad I didn't gain. I am trying to work up to going to water therapy. I started at 556 and am down to 454- I had a gastric sleeve and am hoping to get an RNY this winter. But I have to lose 30 lbs. I am probably repeating myself but oh well!! emoticon Thanks for the input. I really appreciate it. emoticon Hope everyone has a good night! emoticon

Have you tried the SP recipes? If you go to the top of the page where it says Articles & Videos, you will be able to look of a huge amount of foods and how to prepare them. You might want to give them a try. They really do have some good and easy recipes there.

Keep up the good work!

AUNTALICE - You mentioned that your weight was the same Are you measuring and/or weighing your foods? Be sure you also tract all foods/liquids that go into your mouth whether they be good foods or bad foods. This will show you where you what foods work for you and which ones don't. Also, are you exercising? Walking is a great exercise for us. Walking is the main source of exercise for me. emoticon and together emoticon . emoticon .

I'm in to week 3 and trying to continue to exercise on a regular. I started hip hop abs and i'm able to get through the exercises without stopping so that's good. I still need to find a variety of food I tend to eat the same things although they're healthy it would be nice to find something else.

CISTRON - It's quite common to go up a pound; could be water weight. Stay positive and be sure to exercise as well.

Today was weigh in day and sad to say I was up 1 pound. I will be more careful this week, although according to the plan with the exception of 1 day I was within target each day. I think it is just a transition week, so I plan to really be careful this next week in my choices and focus on changing up my exercise a bit to perhaps give my body a change.

I will succeed!

Live with courage, compassion and joy!

I am doing better with my blood sugars. but I am having trouble with my fasting blood sugars. I know what it is to want to have a high calorie snack. but I have gotten around it by making pies with sugar free jello, sugar free cool whip, fat free cream cheese. I have less calories but a lot of satisfaction. I pushed myself yesterday until I crashed. I tried to do a lot and succeeded but then I hit a wall. I was really proud of myself though. I am working really hard at being positive. emoticon emoticon emoticon

CISTRON - emoticon and together emoticon . emoticon and you'll get there.

When you feel yourself being tempted as yourself "Do I really want that pie or do I want to get healthy?" "Am I really hungry or just being tempted?" Try drinking a big glass of water instead and weight a few minutes. "Is your stomach growling?" Try going for a nice walk or even a run if you're able. Chances are you aren't hungry and the water and walk/run will help you over that hurdle. IF you find that you are still wanting that piece of pie then have just a small piece of pie and then put the pie out of sited. Nothing is off limits on this journey - just portion control.

REMEMBER: YOU ARE WORTH IT !!!

Embarrassed with myself today... I thought I had it handled today but even after trying to compromise my cravings with healthy options I still gave in and ate 2 pieces of dutch apple pie. I am more embarrassed because now I feel satisfied instead of remorseful and a little worried that I might have trouble tomorrow.... If you can send me encouraging words tomorrow so I get back on track....

Day 1--good start to Week 3. within calorie budget; 30 min cardio; 20 min strength
Day 2--continued to focus. stayed within calorie budget. 30 min, interval, 10 min. strength, 20 min walking. mindful of food choices this holiday
Day 3--still under calorie limit--barely!--but doing o.k.
Day 4--under calorie limit; need to watch content to keep bs low. not much exercise today.
Day 5--weight down some--so need to hold focus and keep it down. back to 30 walk, 30 interval, 20 strength today. under calorie limit, but need to be more thoughtful about choices. (Chips. Really?)
Day 6--feeling good about my intentional exercise. doing o.k. but need to be thoughtful about snacks--don't eat just whatever is there; look for something wise.
Day 7--BS is sometimes down/sometimes up--not as "up" as used to be. Did my usual 30 interval, 30 walking, and the 20 min strength workout for week 3
