It has been nearly two months since I last posted on this topic. All I can say is that my life went in a direction ( I knew it was coming) that I was completely unprepared for regarding my relationship with food and eating healthy. I don't want to make excuses, I could tell you all the reasons why it went bad....but I won't! I will say this, that if you know big things are coming into your life that will take your time & energy you need to make a plan for how you are going to remain healthy during it. This is where I failed; but, I learned from it... that is for sure.
Now don't think that I forgot everything and ate at McDonald's everyday. No, I kept in mind things that I have learned about eating healthy; but I was not as careful or as deliberate in my food planning. I have found that these two key factors are very important to making a food change. So needless to say there has not been a huge change in my weight...which I understand and am not beating myself up about it.
Results of my Doctors visit...
Now I did go to my doctor and I surprisingly had a good report and I even lost a little weight. I could kinda tell; because my clothes are fitting better, thank goodness. My cholesterol could be better but it wasn't in a range that she was concerned about. My blood pressure was good. I just need to loose the weight and exercise. I shared with her that I discovered over the past 2 months that it wasn't how much I was eating; it was what I was eating. I actually left feeling pretty good!
I also decided that I will not share weight loss or gain numbers here...it is not the point. Sure it is a goal but I don't want it to be about numbers, I want this to be a God thing. I want to be surrendered to Him in everything. I never want this to be about my own vanity or praise. However, during my journey I may feel that God may allow me to share numbers later...we will see.
Goals for the up coming week...
- Go back to the 1,200 calorie diet
- Use my sparkspeople.com account to help
- Use my walking videos for exercise
I will write next week to let you know how all is going. Ready to get back on this journey to good health and feeling good!
