January was a VERY successful month for me. I lost 5.4 poounds for the month. I feel really good and for a change, I have not had a bout of flu or cold this winter - a few threats in the fall but so far nothing that has really laid me low enough to miss work. We have had a lot of days off due to weather - have to make them up later but I don't care because right now they are really helping both the kids and us adults survive the winter blahs. I have reduced my ins ulin by 15 units and still staying well within my expected ranges for blood su gars. My knees have been good DESPITE the cold and it has been a little over a week since I have NEEDED the P A I N meds. Overall - I would say this has been a GREAT start for the new year.

Plans for February are simple - I intend to KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON and move forward. As my knees hurt less in spite of the really REALLY cold temperatures, I expect to increase my E X E R C I S E. and keep eating healthier foods and keep up my positive attitude. It is so much easier to do ANYTHING when my attitude and mood stay positive. No school to start this month which s uits me just fine. We go shopping on Sunday and I plan to really go heavy on the fruits and veggies.

Everyone have a great and wonderful day. I may come back later and blog as the day goes on since I am home and might have some extra time on my hands.

    NANCY, i AM SO PROUD OF YOU !! Wow, I just clapped my hands for you and said softly "Way to go" DH looked up and said what are you so happy about?
    I just smiled and said, "one of my SPARK team gals had a GOOD month, lost weight and knees not hurting and insulin use down and NO pain meds...WOW...My turn will come if I stay faithful...Husband smiled and said, "you are more healthy even if those scales won't let you see success yet."

    I am encouraged and impressed! Keep it up and I will too.

    I'm glad you had a really successful January and I wish I could say the same for myself. My New Year started just recently when I finally put a stop to my overeating since the holidays and consequently re-gained almost 10 pounds, 2 1/2 of which I lost again. So glad to hear due to healthy changes and WL you are able to cut down on your insulin and your knees hurt less. That is the kind of success I want for myself. I know February is going to be just as good or better than January was. Enjoy your weekend.
