Visit with My Dietitian

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Wonderful news I've lost 10 pounds from her last measurement. That's 28 pounds. Across the board I dropped my Cholesterol 20%. My HDL is still very high and it puts me at an intermediate risk when added to my age.

I have taken myself out of my safety zone by walking in front of my students and co-workers during lunch. I've been walking everyday this week and I am walking 24 to 35 minutes at a time. It comes to a 3.5 mile an hour pace. Not bad for somebody who sat for the last couple years in a chaise lounge that supports my bulk. Well my bulk is getting smaller.

I lost three inches around my waist. If anybody finds the three inches please do not return it.

Anybody have a cure for plumber's butt? My pants slip down as I walk. The belly pushes the pants and belt down. I tried suspenders a couple times 15 years ago. They are dangerous when they snap.

I looked at several online hydration calculators and the most reliable suggest 16 to 25 cups a day. I thought that would be difficult until I stopped putting ice in the water. Apparently iced drinks can make you feel full.

I love SparkPeople. I eat anything I want and tracking foods helps me make smart choices. I wanted Stater Bros self rising pizza. A serving is 1/6 of the pizza and I knew I wanted to eat half that pizza when we purchased the pizza that morning. I put the pizza into my tracker early in the morning and made adjustments around those calories throughout the day. I only ate 1/4th of the pizza during dinner but I could have eaten 1/2 if I desired.

I appreciate all the encouragement that I have received. Thank you.

    Good for you with the weight loss, the inches lost and the reduction in your cholesterol! The big thing with weight loss that so many people overlook is that it only takes small changes to lead to big results. You're doing great, keep it up!
