Today is a beautiful sunny day despite the cold outside. I am feeling nervous and optimistic. and proud of myself. I have been logging on Carb Manager and keeping within my macros for a couple weeks now. I have seen 5 lbs shed in the past couple weeks. I am now at 204.6 lbs. It has been quite some time since I have been there and can see onederland very close by! I am proud of myself.
I STILL need to schedule my 6 month med check/shots etc and my yearly mammogram. Both I am not motivated to do and feel inconvenienced by. I know I need to though. Get it done and over with then in 6 months do half of it all over again. I don't like it and that should be enough to motivate me to lower my A1c and weight in hopes to get off some or all the medication I am on now. I know I can and am able to make progress in this and will. By my calculations my A1c may be up a point from 6 months ago. But! Still in a non diabetic range I believe. I am sure they will take a pee test too, another thing that hangs over my head because I am bound and determined to never go to a kidney specialist ever again. Not if I can help it.
I need to remember to get the second dose of the pneumonia shot I had started. And since I will be traveling cross country I responsibly should look into my covid shot options in my area. I am not truly sure how to feel about that whole subject. I just want respectful, responsible decisions to be made by all.
March is a HUGE birthday month. All 3 of my sons have birthdays this month. They want costco cake and brownies and ice cream. So I REALLY need to exercise self discipline and not ruin my progress! Besides I am taking a 25th anniversary trip in June and I want to look and feel good!
I am saving a trip to Hawaii as an ultimate reward for losing ALL the weight I wanna lose. I ALMOST got there a couple years ago! I was 40 lbs away. I had lost about a 100 lbs and life happened in not a good way and all that went down the tubes and it has taken me two years to see any progress in the right direction again. I AM happy to see this stall I have been in finally broken. It was very hard to push through when you see absolutely no progress no matter how hard you try. But I stuck with it and it finally happened.
Spring is just around the corner! Warmer months ahead! More sun ahead...I hope!
