2. Stay within carb limit
3. Eat more fruits and veggies

Personal goals
1. Start on Christmas cards
2. Clean kitchen (AGAIN)
3. Try to find some joy in the season

Hey Jenn


Good to see you. I haven't been on much since I reached my goal in August but I thought I would stop by and say hello. BTW you did the Canadian format on the date. So it's not wrong just not consistent with previous ones

Congratulations on sticking with the weekly motivation thread. I hope it's progressing well for you.

As far as joy in the season, well I say make some. Do something special that reflects your views on the holiday spirit. Lately I've made pies for Christmas dinner at the soup kitchen. I'm sure you can find something that feels "worthwhile".

Have a good week!

Thanks Robin. Yes, I find I need the motivation or at least the goals in my mind to know what works for me. I'm doing much better on remembering to drink water.
I've lost 2lbs this week. I did try to eat healthy when I was away so it makes me feel good that I did.

Hope you have a good Christmas if I don't talk to you before.

A shout out from Robin brought me back home.

I have not been exercising and not drinking enough water, but I have been watching my blood sugar and cholesterol. I have not lost any weight since my last weight recorded here of 234 on 9/11/2013. Beats the heck out of gaining, though.

I have a doctor appointment Dec. 18 for just a weigh-in and cholesterol check and she will not be pleased. But I did remind myself it's my body and I am a grown woman who is ultimately responsible only to myself. So it's myself whom I've let down.

But it's never too late to restart and get back on track, so here I am.

Looking forward to catching up with my old pals and meeting new ones here.

Hi Mern--missed you and welcome back!
My blood sugars have been all over the place since I got back from my weekend away. Eating at irregular times and I skipped lunch because of transportation issues (a long story). Slowly starting to get back to normal.
Mern I was supposed to go and see my family Dr in the fall. Around the time I would have my Mom got cellulitis--very bad infection in leg. needless to say I haven't had time so yeah my specialist won't be pleased. But as you say it's my health and I'm the one responsible for what goes into my body. Thank goodness I don't have to go until the middle of Feb!!

Hi, Jenn! Thanks for the welcome back.

Glad you're getting your blood sugar back on track. I should have known (but didn't until recently) that keeping blood sugar stable throughout the day will also aid in weight loss. Makes sense since excess blood sugar can get stored as fat--which is the primary reason for my obesity. I think that's a pretty accurate statement, even though I do admit to an occasional binge. So many people think all obesity is caused by eating like pigs all the time.

I've heard that cellulitis is awfully painful as well as dangerous. Is your Mom OK now? I understand the difficulty of your staying on track with diet when family issues are pressing.

The middle of February is a decent amount of time to get your numbers back on track. I'll bet you'll make good progress.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
