Not a bad day....everyone in, and patients behaving themselves nicely. One of the afternoon men who came in was in a wheelchair and the nutritionist informed the doctor that this 63 year old man could not stand up and be weighed. He, according to her, had to weigh over 550#. His wife was with him and not happy. Her statement was that he refused to go on any weight loss program. He is covered with infections and unable to care for himself. His whole attitude is 'Feed me'. If he doesn't like something he throws a verbal fit until she gives in. I don't think I would do well in that relationship.
I took my break today and sat down with a sample 26 point WW menu and entered it into the SP nutritional log. It came out to be a little over 1200 calories. So it gave me an idea about breaking this plateau. I planned out a week's worth of meals Mon-Fri with more flexibility on the weekend. I'll continue to work out my daily hour and walk on the weekends. That should give me 2 days of water aerobics, 3 days of weight lifting and 2 days of walking. I've continued to decrease size...but I would really appreciate losing another 12-15 pounds by Easter. I've been pulling out clothes and have them lined up by sizes. When I feel comfortable in the next size down I 'retire' the size I'm leaving and hang them at the back of the closet and pull the 'new size' out to the middle. I can go down to about 18-20 before I have to start buying clothes again. I have all the time in the world.
SIL is still ill. He's been abed since last Fri except to go to the doctor. He got up this afternoon and was able to play with GS a little. Not contagious...at least not now...but it was rough on the little guy not to be able to be near dad for a few days.
Co worker showed me a pic of her new GS today...not born yet...4 mths gestation and absolutely perfect. I would love to paint a pic of that...just beautiful.
Be blessed all. Early to bed tonight...up for gym, work and then art class tomorrow night. God is good and life goes on. Keep Sparkin'!!
