Continuation of 2009
Sunday, January 03, 2010
I took a break and thought that through the holidays I might have sabotaged myself. Good news, did not :) yea me :)
More good news, I met and exceeded my goal for 2009, not by much but still did it.
The journey continues though, not just maintaining. My husband has suggested that there might be more room for improvement. Another 15 pounds ... lol
I think it is doable, as I can see that there is more fat on my body and my BMI is at the high range of normal.
So, a continuation of 2009 :)
I can and will be healthy, move to a more whole food approach to my eating habits and move away from quick foods. Get my carbs from fruit and veggies, eat protein at each meal, just veggies for dip instead of crackers, have eggs and protein for breakfast and stay away from cold cereal and toast ... the list goes on but for me it is to remember that I can do this. It has taken 3 years to lose 60 pounds, it's not a race but a steady paced jog with the finish line in sight, but I must resist the urge to do whatever it takes to win and stick to tried and true strategies instead of quick fixes.
Another item that I must take very seriously is my B12 deficiency ... My Dr said a range of 900 to 950 is healthy, mine is at 149, so I have to supplement daily with B12 strips. Have to have a blood test in a month to see if these are helping, if not .... shots it is :( Now that I know that my symptoms are not due to old age (at 47 lol) I can adapt to offset the short term set backs knowing that in a few months my memory will return, my feet won't fall asleep while I work out and my exhaustion will diminish.
I am hoping for better health, more gym time and kids moving out ... lmao ... thought I would try to sneak that one in :)
I want to thank my spark freinds for all their support and love through the holidays and wish them bountiful good things and health for 2010 :)
By for now and talk to you all tomorrow :)
