Learning To Take Care of Myself in 2015

Yep, here I go again. I am sure I am not alone. It's time to look at my progress or lack of progress in 2013 and 2014. I lost a small mount in 2014.

So it's almost seven years since I joined Spark and I still haven't gotten to my goal. I weigh more than I did when I started. I feel like I'm telling myself a fib when I say, "This time I will do it!" but I am hoping that this time will be the charm. This time next year I'll have a completely different story. Instead of trying again, ...

So it's almost seven years since I joined Spark and I still haven't gotten to my goal. I weigh more than I did when I started. I feel like I'm telling myself a fib when I say, "This time I will do it!" but I am hoping that this time will be the charm. This time next year I'll have a completely different story. Instead of trying again, I did it finally! A big motivator is that I don't want to do this again in Jan 2016.

Of course I'm trying to figure out my lack of commitment. What am I getting by holding on to this weight. Dropping these pounds offers so much more. I know one thing. I love to eat and while I can have incredible self control, I can also allow a lot of splurges and toss my diet plan to the side and out the door. Sometimes I am easily influenced to eat what I shouldn't while at other times, you couldn't pay me to go off my plan. So I need to find out how to keep the healthy me and stick to it determination in control.

So some things I think that will help me stay focused most of the time.
1. I need to be honest with myself. I know what foods will put weight on and what will help decrease it so I need to act accordingly when I choose what to eat.

2. Eat at home whenever possible and eat before going out and take snacks with me. My will gets very weak when smell fast food cooking.

3. Realize there is nothing more important than this. My future and current health depends on it.

4. I need to choose a healthier option if we have to eat out.

5. I know how to do this. I have no excuses. I can do this.

6. July 2014- The thing I feared has come upon me...a high blood sugar diagnosis!

I am setting myself up for success this year.

My Goals:
1. Drop 10 pounds
2. Drop 15-20 lbs
3. Onederland in 2015
4. 35ish inch waist.

Remember slow weight loss is still good b/c it gives the skin time to adjust.

My Program:
Wed 7/16/14 -
Diabetes 2 diagnosis. A1C - 8.8
Blood glucose - 171

3. Tracked weight in Feb 2015 and the scale wasn't moving down on the veg plan. I kept slipping off plan frequently and wasn't the happy veg person. Started the Belly Fat Cure in March and the scale started moving down so will stick to BFC since it seems to be what works for my body. I am happier on this plan.

2. Read Dr. Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes and Eat To Live - Reversing diabetes books. They were very convincing. My skin looks better when I eat more veggies. I'm plant based- for normalizing blood sugars and losing weight.

1. Started with Low Carb (Started very low carb Atkins 72 but still felt bad after a month and anxiety /depression started to surface again. Researched and it can be caused by very low carb so increasing carbs a bit.

Personal Information:
Married - no kids other than our dog-baby Gizmo.

I love to read inspirational books, self improvement, and Christian fiction.

Other Information:
With God all things are possible. That's my view in life even though I don't always act like it. That's a goal too - live it.

"Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world."
� Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Many things which cannot be overcome when they are together yield themselves up when taken little by little."
� Plutarch

Sounds like that quote applies to the weight I want to release.

"You cannot afford to settle for any situation that dampens your spirit. When you discover you have 'detoured,' you must do whatever it takes to return to the path of joy. Putting your foot down is a prerequisite to stepping ahead." - Alan Cohen
