Great. We can motivate each other.
My last glucose test came back high. This was the extra motivation I needed. I went to the library and looked up what I could do about it. Basically, it is exercise regularly and lose weight.
I already have heart failure and do not want to add being diabetic so I am doing whatever it takes to lose at least 10 pounds. Right now I am concentrating on 2 pounds at a time.
I must be one of the slowest losers but that is ok. This is how I have done this month:
5/ 1 - 152
5/15 - 150 - first two pounds gone
5/19 - 149.6
5/20 - 149.4
5/21 - 149.1
5/22 - 149.1 - said "no thanks" to birthday cake at a party.
5/23 - 149.1 - had virtual binge
5/24 - 149.0 - cancelled pity party
5/25 - 148.9 - I didn't put on all this weight quickly and it won't come off quickly either.
5/26 - 148.8 - I am learning patience
5/27 - 148.2 - I ate a modest portion of spaghetti. I have power over food.
5/28 - 148.0 - I was doing the happy dance because I lost my second two pounds but later in the day my mood got negative. I took a walk and ignored my negativity.
5/29 - 148.6 - Even though I stayed in calorie range the scale showed a 0.6 gain. That is ok because it is just water. I am still doing good.
When I was younger and healthier, losing weight was no problem. Now it is a different story. One of the side effects of my medication is weight gain plus I now have to live a sedentary life. So losing weight is now a tad more difficult but not impossible.
When I set my mind to something, I can do it. I just needed to set my mind to losing some weight and keeping it off.
Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.
Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.
Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success
The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.
Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.
