Making a Goal and Hitting IT!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Well as I have posted and in my last post I said that i was 5 pounds short of my 20 pound a year goal loss - well that is actually no longer the case I have actually now made the goal that I set for my self each year.

I'm pleased that I've been able to make it two years in a row and if next year goes well as this year (in general) then I'll be 10 pounds closer to my 200 pound goal weight (ya I know doc's still wont me at 160 - but if I can get close to the 200 mark and not louse muscle that I've gained then I'll be happy - as in I don't need to whittle myself down to a BMI weight that isn't reasonable for my body type and build).

Now if I can just get my A1C back down to 7 I'd be all set - what at the doc's on Tuesday I got the news that my A1C was at 10.2% up from the 9.9% four months before so NOT a good thing at all - thus he upped my Lantus that I take at bedtime, but not my meal time insulin.

So next year goals will be to get my A1C lower and to louse another 20 pounds plus find as close to stable employment as possible (this goal I have had for 5+ years now and its still one that keeps being out of reach - but I have hope that it will come into reach one of these days).

Take care everyone!
