Spooky Spiders week 4 ---Success & Goals

Monday, October 27, 2014

For the final week of the Spooky Spiders challenge, I was challenged to blog about accomplishments thus far & goals for the remainder of the year .

As far as accomplishments, at this point, I really don't feel I have accomplished anything. I know I was slowly making process at the 1st 1/2 of the year, had even lost a few #s. But then ---July came & my DR put me on insulin, I immediately gained it all back + some.

My goal for the end of the year is try to get myself back on track as I have discontinued the insulin, otherwise I would have kept right on gaining as that is one of the side effects. I'm planning to turn the spare bedroom into a workroom, already have a treadmill & planning to purchase another used piece of exercise equipment.

By Dec 31, my goal is to drop from current 188 to 180.

    I stuggle with my weight all the time.....but without the insulin I go into ketoacidosis and that is no fun either...... So my doc just has to realize that I have difficulty loosing the weight. Sure hope you have better luck than I have been having....

    All the best with your goals, Donna. It can be difficult to make progress with things out of our control like side effects of medications like weight gain. Enjoy using your exercise equipment.

    Donna, it sounds like we have both ended up in the same boat. I am now on insulin and we keep adjusting it to get my blood sugars down. Keep on working at it will the pounds will come back off.

    It can be tough to lose weight when you are taking medications. I hope your dr can at least find a way to reduce the pain in your feet so that exercising will not be so difficult. Even though you feel like you haven't made any progress when the numbers on the scale don't seem to reflect what you've done. However, you are off of insulin now and that is progress! That is a huge victory and I'm sure you've probably had many other non-scale victories. Good for you for turning the spare room into an exercise room. We did the same thing a couple of years ago. Have fun getting more exercise in once you get the room done. I think you'll have more success once the room is done. Your goals are good and attainable. I'm sure you'll be successful! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You can do this Donna. You have your good and bad days, but as long as you never stop trying you can achieve anything.

    Donna, hang in there. It will get better. I know its easy to think that you have not make any progress when the numbers on the scale does not show much movement but if you think of the many non scale victories you have had since January you will realize how much progress you have made. Have fun putting together your workout room.

    YOU CAN DO THIS. GLAD YOU ARE OFF THE INSULIN AND DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE. I BELEIVE THE LESS MEDS WE TAKE THE BETTER OFF WE ARE. I KNOW SOMETIMES WE DON'T HAVE A CHOICE. A WORKOUT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA.

    Hang in there. It takes awhile to get away from the weight gain that insulin causes.
