Having a Good day!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I m one happy little chick a dee today. Why you ask? Well the scales is moving in the right direction for one!! I've finally making progress with eating less calories... for the longest it was hard.. it seemed I liked food more lol Still could eat less than what I m doing, but as I have found it takes time getting your body use to it. But for now I am happy with staying in between 1500-1600 calories atleast 5 -6 days a week... I do let myself have a cheat day to hit about 2000 calories But only once a week... & I have been doing my best to stay busy all day weather its working out, playing with the kiddos or cleaning house, lawn care, shopping whatever... just busy lol Also I have worked myself up to 12 sometimes 14 glasses of water a day.. also took time to do so but I m there!! Anyways I am finding that IT ALL takes time... not just the weight loss but the steps it takes to get there. NOT that I m saying I am THERE... oh no my friends I have along ways to go BUT I do believe I will be celebrating the over all total of 90lbs gone since Oct of 2010.

I also just broke down and ordered me some new work out clothes,,, the ones I was using were just getting to baggie! I have been doing my best NOT to buy anything because I have so much to lose and want to spend it all on the cute stuff lol but I figured the workout clothes I need! And yes when the others just won't stay up anymore I will get some more... so don't want to scare the mess out of anyone with this naked body lol

Oh and I did get my blood results back and GET this... even after at that point of having the test done... it had been about 8 months of watching my cholesterol, and everything but some how it all went up buy like 2 points... not that that's horrible I know but I mean REALLY?! So my cholesterol is 216!
I am at a loss for words.. all I can do it keep working on it!

Okay so I've went on long enough all I m gonna say now is Thanks for reading and I WISH YOU all the BEST!!!!!! emoticon

    Congrats on new workout clothes! There's just something about cute workout clothes that makes a workout better! emoticon

    What was the break down for the good cholesterol compared to the bad cholesterol? I had borderline high cholesterol, but it was because my good cholesterol was really high, which pushed my overall cholesterol number up. I did eventually get it back into a healthy range with healthy eating, exercise and some fish oil though.

    What a fantastic day you've had! Keep it up, everyone is cheering you on. The numbers will move and as Mennoly says some people just have higher numbers, you're doing everything right. I can't wait till I have to go shopping too.

    You are doing great! Work out clothes are one thing that I will buy for myself if I can't easily take them in because they get worn a lot. As for the cholesterol, some people just produce more cholesterol. I am one of them. Supposedly people on thyroid replacement also have higher cholesterol. There was a time that your cholesterol numbers were not considered bad. Today everything is just stricter. Keep up the great work!

    I know the feeling of needing new small work out clothes. Wow, does it make your hold your head up higher at the gym. When you see you have shape. Plus, all the compliments from people that see you daily, the tighter clothes make them really take notice.

    All the best in your journey!
