Week 2 Complete!

I maintained this week. I'm so happy I didn't gain! Most times that's the way it goes, I lose, I gain - goes back and forth so maintaining is just awesome!! I had 1 day where my eating sucked but otherwise I was good. I did my arm bike 5 out of 7 days and journaled everything! Let's hope for another week like that :)

Doc called Monday and I have to go back on my Lopid - chol. is good at 173 on the Lipitor but my Trig. which were getting down around 200 or less shot back up to 560. So back on another medication :P Can't wait to get surgery and get rid of some of these drugs.

Week 1 Complete!

My first week is done and I think I did a pretty darn good job. Of course won't know the results until Tuesday when I weigh in. I've used my arm bike 5 times, journaled everything for the week and even drank all my water. I know I can do this, nothing will stop me this time!

I feel that journaling has opened my eyes to my downfalls. I have a strange schedule and I found out this week that when I get home at 8pm I tend to overeat - or eat the wrong things. So I managed to plan my meals when I work, all but one day at least were planned. I have even started measuring things so I get accurate measurements and not what I think things are.

A New Year!

A New Year once again! This is the year I get healthy! NO MORE EXCUSES! I have completed all my mandatory testing for Darmouth and now I need to finish the weight loss expectation. I lose and I gain. I'm eating like crap even though I try to be healthier in my choices. I know I can do this. I found my calorie counting book I received from VT Bariatric center and I bought a journal for the new year. Today is day 1 of a new healthier me and I will conquer this.

All the support I can get is most appreciated!
