I should be in bed but I did an extra set of lifting because I can't sleep. Worried about my sick little cat. I do animal rescue so I am used to sick animals but my ex bf and I actually adopted this one. I am very attached to her (I also have 7 dogs/8 cats/kittens and a bird right now) One of my dogs is snoring like a man which is cracking me up! Another one is woofing in her sleep, too cute... I have one laying at my feet and another one in my lap plus 2 cats that are wrapped around my laptop making it hard to type. And hard to go to bed so I can reach my sleep goal, lol.

My checkup at the doctor went way better than I expected. For those of you who don't know me, my doc worked with me for the past 2 1/2 years to help me develop a personalized eating plan to successfully reverse my pre-diabetes and high cholesterol to normal through diet alone, no meds. I didn't lose any weight over the past three months, but gained only one pound. Even though I hadn't logged my food for the better part of those three months, my fasting blood sugar and A1C (average blood sugar) are in the normal range. Doc decided to skip the cholesterol test because I've been doing so well in that area that she thinks it's OK to test me only every six months. But I still want my blood sugar tested every three-four months because Type II diabetes runs so heavily in my family.

Doc doesn't preach to me--she coaxes me back on track through listening to my own words. After complimenting me on achieving a healthful carb and cholesterol intake lifestyle, and gaining only one pound over the past three months, she asked WHY I gained a pound. I told her I need to increase my protein because I let it drop; and that I haven't been exercising and that none of my explanations as to why I haven't been exercising are valid excuses. Doc asked if I could promise myself that I'd exercise three times a week for the next month or so and increase it as I am able. And I said I could.

THEN I came home to find vabeachgirl's post to think "I WILL do it" ... "because I am worth it."

My simple goals for the rest of this week are to work my way back up to 64 oz. water per day and to exercise two days.

Vabeachgirl, kudos on your Monday and Tuesday accomplishments on goals 1-3 and on the extra lifting. Sorry about your pickled cookie dough! Aw, I understand your attachments to the rescued pets. My little sister also has a house full of rescued pets--three dogs, two cats and then a store-bought bunny. I hope your cat gets better soon.

Jenn, best wishes on your goals. Oops, I forgot until I saw your water goal that I've been slacking on water.

Fridge is all clean--found some stuff in the back of the fridge EWW. Garbage day is tomorrow and will be last one until after Christmas so everything is out! I'm going to count going up and down stairs and lugging 2 full bags of garbage out to the curb as half on my exercise for today!

Congrats Mern on a fairly good report from the Dr. I need to buy more fruits and veggies tomorrow. I know I have been eating too many carbs and it shows in my blood sugar readings. I hopped on the scale on mon and lost half a pound.

Mern, glad to hear the news was good on your dr. appointment! I remember when my doctor told me if I lost about 7 pounds I would be perfect. I kind of wanted to kick him! BUT he really cared and was kind of old school and HONEST! Haha!


And you know what? All of us are worth it even when we don't feel like we are, right? RIGHT???

jjrudd, congrats on the half pound loss! Should I even ask what you found in your fridge? I am always hoping I find "something" in the back of my fridge or cabinet when I get a craving but I never find anything I didn't already know about!

LMB2011, where did you go?

01gt4.6, What's going on with your lack of water? Stop eating that cake/cookie/wtfe and post up slackerboy.

Hi all. Better late than never. I walked for 30 min on the treadmill this morning and I hope to do another 30 tonight. I need to get back on track and making progress.

Jenn, woohoo on the 1/2 lb. loss! And congrats on all the exercise you got with your chores. Now come clean MY fridge! Good idea on stocking up on the low carb fruits. I could surely use some fresh strawberries and canteloupe.

vabeachgirl, nice report. I know TBD means to be done. What does TBH mean?--or was that a typo" I know what wtfe means, though. LOL Mike is usually good on the food porn, so I suspect he'll fess up a list of wtfe he ate. Your old school, honest doc sounds sweet. Very gentle and diplomatic way to enrourage that little 7 lb. loss.

Libby, VERY NICE job on your walking!
