Another Week


Well, here it is - another week has past. But not any week - Christmas was in there. Lots of food, not the correct food, was shoved in the old pie-hole. At least I broke even - same weight: 190.4 -so, no damage done. All that crap food - cookies, cakes, pies, chocolates - makes me feel so lethargic; well, more lethargic than normal. Today I'm going to eat right and head downward again.

The doctor visit was great - he said my goal weight should be 180, so ten pounds to go!

Ah, yes - the glucose - you've been waiting for that, right?

TA-DA! Man, that looks good! Though after yesterday it may be around 180! Just kidding...

Catching Up

First, I want to thank everyone who left a comment - that's really cool and I need the encouragement!

Well I missed posting last week - no biggie - I weighed in at 192.4 - a 1.2 pound loss. I'm slowing the loss up some and trying to wean my self off the constant tracking and going with a "lifestyle" approach. Man, Weight Watchers really teaches you a lot! I still "count" and look up foods, but not tracking every bite. I sometimes look up foods after I eat to see how I did - I'm really getting a good sense of what and how much I should eat. I weighed myself this morning and it was 191.2 - that rocks - I feel great!

I had blood work done yesterday and the lipid panel was posted last night look at this!

WOW, huh? I'm waiting for the glucose numbers to come in - that, to me, is most important. As soon as I get those in I'll put 'em up!

I have a busy Holiday ahead - my daughter and her husband are coming in for a week and I'm really looking forward to the time with the entire family together!

Merry Christmas everyone! And a Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends!

This is why I missed a week! I wanted to wait until I hit the "Big 50" at WW. When you add in the first ten pounds I lost it's actually 61.4 pounds this year! WOW!
It seems that all I get is compliments these days and another guy joined due to his daughter and my success with WW. I still keep it in perspective, I really didn’t do this to look good and hear compliments – it was begun for my health. I feel great, really great – like years younger! I have reset my goal to 185. I realize that I’m not done; I’m not at my correct, healthy weight. I have an appointment on Dec 22 with my doctor – I’ll let him make the final decision.
