Finally made a choice

Sunday, January 31, 2021

Well I finally got disgusted with myself and joined WW. I'm tired of hurting all the time and feeling miserable. My husband and I have been talking about ways to get myself motivated and I finally decided on joining WW. So far I am loving the app and I've lost 4 pounds since I started. (less than a week). I also talked to a friend from grad school/a previous job who has done Keto for quite awhile and lost 55 pounds on it and maintained. So I'm following a diet that is kind of a Keto/Whole30 mix, which they are pretty similar, but I'm making it work for me. My daughter seems to enjoy it too as she loves fruits and veggies. I can see making bad choices for myself, but I should not feed my daughter crap too. She will have to battle her weight the rest of her life due to genes (and that extra one!) so I want to solidify good habits in her now. My blood sugar is coming back down already too (it was creeping back up despite the insulin). I feel like I have a little more support now too which helps.

I'm still battling that dang plantar fasciitis. I go back on the 16th and will probably get an injection then. I had to have an endometrial biopsy again this past week and some labs drawn, but it was clear and they have officially labeled me perimenopausal. I get my mammogram on the 8th and may try to get in with my PCP about the pain in my left side that's been there a year (they just wrote me off about it last year) and my all over joint pain that she just kind of ignores when I go in. But, if I continue to feel better with eating better, I may not have to push the issue as much. We will see!!!

    I've done WW and it was okay for me. It got me started on the weight loss journey! Good luck on your diet and glad you are eating better with your daughter.

    Great job! WW has always been a great program, I've used it and lost weight a couple of times over the years. Sticking with those good habits after losing weight was always my challenge!

    Have a great day!

    WW is a super program. I used it years ago when they had tally sheets. I really believe in their way of eating and whole 30 too. What a wonderful skill to teach your daughter, the art of healthy living. emoticon
