Ups and downs

Thursday, October 03, 2013

These last few weeks have been a mixture of really great highs and a really angering and disgusting low of a discovery. On the getting healthy aspect, I've been super successful since adding the IF in. I'm now just ounces away from getting to the 150's. That is a huge huge achievement and exciting thing for me! On the other issue, I'm really and truly totally pissed off with the obaminable care act. Now, **warning!** I've never ever EVER been a fan of the current pretender and his entourage. I think they are the worst thing to ever happen to America. If my ancestors (who came over on the Mayflower and sacrificed their lives in the creation of our Nation!) and my family members who came after (who also gave their lives for this Nation!) saw the current state of affairs, it would turn their stomachs and make them wonder WTH as much as it does this military vet.

While I was calculating our costs for the so called affordable care act, taking everything in our situation into consideration, this law will cost us close to $20,000 a year!!! And that's before we see a doc. If this were you, wouldn't you be livid too?

There are not enough 4 letter words to describe what I and my Beloved feel about this.

  


Another successful fasting day done

and down again on the scale! I really can't say just how much I'm loving the new tweaks I've made to my plan. It's absolutely wonderful to see consistent progress every week again. I sure hope it keeps going this way!

Halfway there!

Saturday, September 14, 2013

As of this morning, I'm officially more than half way to my goal!!! I have to admit, it's a little exciting to see on the scale! I even put on a smaller size pair of pants when I got dressed this morning and they were a little loose!! Can't wait to reach the next level down! Thank goodness I didn't get rid of my skinnier me jeans!

It's been awhile

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

since I logged in and made any entries. It's not because I fell off the wagon, I didn't! I've been staying strong, not giving up or quitting. It's just that my Beloved had some unexpected but welcomed time off and we took advantage of the time to just invest in spending the time focused on us and the house. It was soooo nice to be able to not turn the alarm clocks on and to just enjoy our morning coffee together instead of that hectic usual morning routine!

I've continued with the post feast full day fast and am averaging a 2 plus pound loss every week!!! I have noticed that not only does the scale reflect a weight loss the day after a fast, but the downward trend continues during the week as well. I'm still not experiencing any feelings of starvation, headaches, shakiness or extreme fatigue so I'm going to keep it a part of my routine. It's exciting considering I spent the greater part of the last few months plateauing. I'm finally getting into the lower 160's range and I hope to be in the 150's by the end of the month! I wish I had done this earlier!

Hope everyone is having a successful time of it!

    Wow, that 2+ lbs/wk is pretty awesome! I'm hoping to do that also! I've heard fasting is good, if you can do it. I'd eat my arm. lol

Hope you're having a good day!
