Today I am about 16 pounds from my goal of 199. When I set my goal to be 200 pounds I never thought I would achieve it especially this quickly. Oct 19th is my 1 year band anniversary and I would like to meet the 199 point by then. While on vacation I lost 7 pounds. That is unheard of. LOL I still continue to weigh everyday and watch it fluctuate a little. This is a bad habit I need to break....it is a hard one. I think starting Sunday we are going to have family weigh in time and rest of the week the scale will be in the cabinet....lets see if I can do it. This is a bit obsessive compulsive but I think I can control my urge to weigh in every morning. LOL Had another great visit the other day with my primary...he pretty much said he does not know what else he can do to help me and felt that the next time he would need to see me is in a year. A year?? I have not been on that kind of a health plan like ever! My A1C was 5.6 For those of you who do not know that is the 3 month blood sugar test and 5.6 is awesome! Not sure if I have ever been a 5.6 let alone doing it with no medication. I have come so far and I am truly proud of myself.
Today I meet a lady at work who was looking for something that she is allowed to eat on her diet that she is on. She happens to be on the I believe it is called the Ideal protein diet? I know a doctor who is running this program and has had good success with his patients. Anyways this lady and I got talking...I know surprising that I could make a friend in the middle of the supermarket aisle huh? lol She was telling me about her diet and I was telling her about my journey. It goes right back to what I have always said.....it does not matter what path your journey takes you on as long as it is the right journey for you and your forever health. I told her I was proud of her making the decision at age 50 to take charge of her life. She is just starting her journey but I can see she has the will to succeed. She complimented me on my success and that meant alot to me. I am proud of myself...I am just learning to say that and believe it. I still think it is funny that people think I look so different now and sometimes don't recognize me....well I guess I have changed a little. I will let you check out some pictures and you can tell me what you think! As always thank you for your support and I am always here for you too! Have a great weekend and I promise that I will not stay away as long next time! God Bless! Jane
