The Progress I've Made and Plans for the New Year

Friday, January 02, 2015

So yet again I basically maintained, even though I intended to lose weight. Still no gain for another year is a definite plus.

The biggest area I made progress on in 2014 was self-care. I learned that I need to keep my salt intake low or I will blow up like a balloon. I learned to eat two crackers before I take my morning meds so I don't have heartburn all day. I learned I need to try to get at least a little bit of exercise every day for my emotional well-being as well as my physical. I learned that it is better to keep going back to the doctor until they figure out the problem, rather than just give up. Most importantly I am learning how to be a confident decision-maker who doesn't need to double-check everything. I have learned not to regret my decisions, but, if they were wrong, to figure out what to do different next time.
Plans for the New Year include speech therapy for my vocal cord dysfunction and a possible move. In addition, I will continue working on increasing my exercise and keeping my eating as healthy as possible.
