"Rev.Dreams" 2 be even healthier by February 14th,2014!!...
I had hoped to reach my ideal weight by my birthday today. But have been at a standstill with losing those last 25 lbs. since May when my doctor began to adjust my meds.Funny thing is my new clothes hang on me already-so am I losing weight?- but gaining muscle mass? I have not gained any weight which is a good thing! But I need to step it up & finally get the last of the flab off of me! I've been walking more & I continue to eat healthy. And now that the colder temps are ...
I had hoped to reach my ideal weight by my birthday today. But have been at a standstill with losing those last 25 lbs. since May when my doctor began to adjust my meds.Funny thing is my new clothes hang on me already-so am I losing weight?- but gaining muscle mass? I have not gained any weight which is a good thing! But I need to step it up & finally get the last of the flab off of me! I've been walking more & I continue to eat healthy. And now that the colder temps are here I will begin doing my Cardio Blast DVD that I recently received.Hoping that may make the difference.So I am extending my goal date into the NEW year...With my NEW goal date being Valentine's Day!! One of the most romantic days of the year!!
My sugar & thyroid are good but I still need to get that cholesterol down.Casper goes for his gastric bypass surgery on the 21st! It is coming up so quick! Gonna be a life change for the both of us! 2014 will not only be even happier but healthier for us together! :)
Got results of yesterday's blood work back.I need to lower my sugar by 2 more points & my cholesterol by 20 more points.And my thyroid is still good!
Casper got his surgery date! He goes in for gastric bypass surgery on October 21st!! Please keep us in your prayers!! He is excited & nervous! He's lost 55 lbs. in like the last 6 mths. or so with another 3 lbs. to go before the surgery.He's been so much happier as he's gone along this journey with me.He's more like the Casper I remember! When he saw me getting healthier(thanx in part to his loving support) it inspired him to think more of himself & do the same!So we are ending the year healthier-mind,body, & spirit.I am so proud of his progress!
I have had a very busy Summer.Unfortunately, I have not lost those last 25 lbs. over the Summer as I had hoped.I have not lost anymore weight since my sugar med was lowered in May.Important thing is that I haven't gained any either.I've just hit a plateau is all.It is normal.I spun & won a exercise video on here the other day.Maybe that will help speed up the process.My sugar & thyroid are good.I am working on lowering my cholesterol. I go for a followup with my doctor on Sept 12th.If my blood work is as he hopes I will be taken off my meds...I've come a long way & I am almost to my goal.Then to maintain it & I KNOW that it can be done!!... :)I have changed my goal date to my birthday November 17th...I originally just wanted to lose 14 lbs. but to be with the BMI I went with losing another 11 lbs.making it the 25 lbs. it would take to be considered normal on the BMI...
On top of everything else that I am doing...
I am currently taking Sexual Assault Advocate/Counselor Certification Training online & VAT(Victim Assistance Training)Online!! This will help as a crime victims advocate as well as a mental health advocate. Always doing all that I can to further my expertise. :) So if I do not answer you back right away this is why...Wishing you all a great week ahead!
I have lost another 7 lbs. meaning that I have broke the 200's & am now at 194 lbs. with another 14 lbs. to lose by my NEW goal date of July 19th,2013!! Based on the doctor's goal for me.But I am thinking of losing another 11 lbs. Making that a total of 25 lbs. to lose making me 169 lbs. @ 5 ft. 9 inches tall.Based on the BMI. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanx! :)
Went to doctor today & my A1C is down to 5.9(it was 6.6 & started out at 8)my sugar med was lowered & soon I will be off of it.Doctor was impressed with my weight loss & commended me for all that I am doing to improve my health! :)
I have lost 8 lbs. more since my last update making me now just 21 lbs.! from my goal weight of 180 lbs.!! by my goal date of 7/8/13!! I've gotta really buckle down now & make some more time for toning up on my manual treadmill!!...
As a result adjustments reflected below:
Hi everybody! My name is Kelly & I have been a member of SP since July 20th, 2010..In the time that I've been here I've lost 124 lbs.with the majority lost since August 17th,2011.I have just 21 lbs. to go to meet my goal weight of 180 lbs. by my goal date of 7/8/13!!In March 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes(-found out I'd had it for 5 yrs.-),under active thyroid,& high cholesterol.In February 2013 I was told that my diabetes is going away. My thyroid is doing better & my cholesterol is going down. I go back to the doctor in May 2013 for a follow up. If my blood work comes back with the results that my doctor hopes for he says that he will be able to take me off my medications.My doctor is very impressed with my progress & says that he is going to mark me down as a success story.I AM seeing results & you can too!!... We all hit plateaus but we make our way through it. Please don't give up!...
The 1st time around in 2007 I lost 109 lbs. within like 4 months time. Refer to pic of me (with my "rocker chick" look)at my thinnest. I was like 19 lbs. from my weight loss goal when I came to the Adirondacks to better my life on 1/4/2008. I'm the happiest I've been in a long time!I came here to build a positive life with my "partner in sublime" Casper.We've been together since 3/29/07! First met as kids & reunited some 23 yrs. later!! Unfortunately I had been under a lot of stress up to that point & was severely malnourished. Had I not removed myself from the situation I was in at that time I probably would not have survived because I was sicker than myself or anyone knew.
But I am getting healthier every day!I have cut my portions by more than half.Eating lots of fresh fruits & vegetables.I eat chicken & fish.I barely even eat any red meats these days.I rarely have soda & I have only about 2-3 cups of coffee a day. I don't crave/overindulge in sweets like some & for that I am thankful.
For those of you that know me I keep VERY! busy.I am all over the internet & I wear many hats. I have a lot of people that depend on me & I need to be healthy to be able to do all that I do...
As an Event Promoter/Manager/Agent/Founder I provide non-profit promotional assistance by helping musicians to promote their links & through recommendations as well as airplay on our radio & TV stations.I plan to do more with this(like signing/booking acts,etc.) as time goes on.We also have a musical movement geared toward child abuse awareness which is incorporated into our promotions company & as part of our ministry. I am an (ordained) reverend.I am a singer.This area is my focus.
As of 6/30/13 after nearly 2 yrs. I am no longer a Peer Respite Advocate/Human Rights Advocate/Activist for a local non-profit agency as they have closed. We were an alternative to the traditional mental health system..I only got the chance to work out in the community a few times a year(I worked only 4 mths. out of the past 23 mths.) as the $ cuts & questionable behavior on behalf of my bosses had really hurt the agency. An investigation is under way & the agency was forced out of business.
I also share missing/ exploited posters & amber alerts via the internet.
As if that were not enough I have several other projects going on like online studies to better my advocate/research specialist work-assisting authorities in solving cold cases,etc...
