First of all Why have I gained 3 lbs on my new Medifast diet plan? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question... Hubby & g'son are in the bed. I'm letting the g'babies & Papa have the bed to themselves this weekend. I feel more secure in a bed to myself, this way no one will accidentally jab me, kick me, lunge on top of me, so forth and so one. Better for all involved! *grin*.
I've been super busy today, well, now yesterday but wanted to come in here and post a little bit. Okay, we all know I can't jot down just a little bit, but I'll try to keep it under a million words. It's like I wrote in the answer to one posting. I have a gift of gab, which can ooze down my finger tips to where I type it out. Hubby has fussed for YEEEEEEEEEEARS, telling me I really do need to write. I tell him I do alllll the time, he says NO that's not what I mean.
So, starting a blog wasn't on my goal list, but I think it is now! I'm not going to do it right this very minute. I've got to keep focused on the project at hand..
I'm not sure if I've actually posted my complete stats on here..
So here goes:.
As with so many of us, I've been overweight most of my adult life. The numbers go up & down, up & down, more upping than downing. I've lost weight too many times to count, but unlike other things I've lost for good, my weight always found me. I'm the big girl of the family, I guess someone has to be the chosen one. I'm as serious as the day is long when I tell people I have dieted myself to this weight..
Also, as with so many of us, this January as in so many other January's, I made a vow to myself that I was going to try again this year to be healthier. I started 2009 @ 278 lbs. ever so slowing getting closer to 300 lbs. I went to the doctor for a check up and was told I had the beginnings of type II diabetes. I can't say I was surprised. My triglyceride levels have been off the chart for many years.
I had known all those years most people with high triglyceride numbers, especially as high as mine were had type II diabetes also. It's not unusual for my medical make up to not follow the norm. Daughter & I joined a gym and were faithful to our workouts. We made healthy Medifast food choices, the scales moved downward at a very slow pace or not at all, but the good news was, I got down to 258, 20 lbs down. I was happy, don't get me wrong, but not overjoyed! By the end of May, membership was once again due, financially we really couldn't afford it..
Yes, I know, alllll of these are excuses, but they sounded good!.
Of course as it always happens, the weight started creeping back up. BLAH.
Fast forward to the middle of July.
When I started on the protein shakes before.
, I'm pretty sure (I'd have to double check my records, cuz I honestly don't remember) but I think I was at 264 lbs because the Friday before.
I had lost 9 lbs & was @ 255 (again!) Our scales here at home run pretty dad-gum close to the ones at the doc's (note to self, take home scales with us when I go in for post op check see how close!). I hadn't weighed since that day at the doc's until today... I hit one of a couple of goals: BELOW 250 since, I don't know when... 248 lbs.! I was so excited since daughter was here today (yesterday) helping with the house I told her, I felt almost embarrassed because deep down inside I don't usually tell people these things, cuz I know in my heart of hearts, it's not going to matter, I'll just gain it back and then some. But this time my mind thought is s-l-o-w-l-y changing. I'm thinking (please pardon my French...I don't want to offend) hot-damn, that will be the last time I'll see 275 lbs! That will be the last time I see 250 lbs.
Ahhhhh, yes live is good, I am tired and I'm sure you are too, of my ramblings, so I'll give us all a break and say g'night!.
