Saturday is my weigh in day. I have lost 12 lbs in 5 weeks. I would have loved it to be more but despite doing everything I can it feels as though each pound lost has had to be dragged from me kicking and screaming all the way.
I am not sure what is different this time round. I have walked over 100 miles since October 3rd. It is getting easier doing the walking. I walk up and down hills, to elevate my heart rate. My food intake is pretty good; it's not perfect but it's a whole lot better than it was.
My diabetes numbers are improving greatly, I guess I just have to be patient. At the end of the day it's getting those diabetes numbers under control which is the number one concern. I have blood work done the middle of December so that gives me another six weeks to try and lose another 12 lbs. That should make a big difference to those diabetes numbers I am hoping.
I am having my physical at the end of November, so my goal there is to have another 8 lbs off by then. That's with the nurse in the doctor's office. I will then have a telephone appointment with the doctor just before Christmas to go over the blood work and the physical's results.
So until then I just have to keep on doing what I am doing. At the end of the day I have lost over a bag of potatoes, plus a bag of sugar. My clothes don't feel as tight and I don't feel as though I will die trying to walk up the hills anymore😊
Slow and steady wins the race as they say!
