Checking in and Goals for May 2010!

Monday, May 03, 2010

I can't even imagine how April flew by.. It seems like the month just began and I set my goals for April and now I am into May already.. The move could be a reason too.. I tried to stay on track most of last month.. I am not saying that I was perfect, but I did announce my colleagues at work that I am working to get down 10 lbs.. They seemed to make fun of me, but since I had announced them, I had the determination to keep up my words and show them how much I could stick to it.

And after my struggle with my steroids for months now, I did see some downward trend in the weight.. For the past week, the machine showed like 3-4 pounds loss.. I didn't trust it at first, so I tried to monitor it for a week and I guess it is true? And my friends at work saw me today after four days of absence and they feel that I have grown "thin". Though I don't agree with them entirely, I know that that's bit right. So this is motivating me now.. And my hectic tasks at home keeps me from thinking about food. And you know what, I have gotten into the habit of getting rid of any junk food at home.. So if it is not there as an option, I will not reach for it.

I am slowly getting back on track after a messy and hectic week, but it might take another couple weeks for me to get settled.. So I was wondering if I could shoot to lose another few pounds in May? I fear that I might get the weight back.. that holds the back of my mind for some reason.. I hope I don't have to get up on the steroids and my doctor could taper it a bit more for me.. Also I need to focus on taking in more protein and iron to help with the hair re-growth.. So for now my goal is to get around 130 lbs by the end of May. I know that is aggressive, but what else am I to lose?

And I am working towards some changes at work which could also affect my schedule.. Lots of unknowns, uncertainties and learning curve, responsibilities and new team to get along with. I pray that things go well and smooth for me..

Summer is here.. It is this time last year that my illness flared up.. Though I haven't totally recovered from it yet, I am still worried about any new flares. I am trying to protect myself from the sun as much as I can.

So there's lots going on with me and around me and I hope things go well this month!
