Blessings when you least expect them

Friday, January 18, 2013

So, it's been quite a while since my last blog. For those who don't know me, I lost alot of weight several years ago (5 yrs) with the help of a nutritonist. I had much success. Then I started feeling invincible, like I could do this on my own, I had the tools and I knew what to do. Then gradually, I put the wt back on, especially with the passing of my beloved Mother last September. So, fast forward to today....I have been working out regularly, food tracking, yet the scales are not budging after the first 5 lbs... Been toying with the idea of contacting the nutritionist again..(it is on the air force base here and is free since hubby is retired air force)... but then I think to myself..she will think Im a failure.... ugh...

So yesterday I get a call from this vary nutritionist "Jackie". Seems like my base doctor referred me without me knowing. When Jackie saw my name, she said "I know who this is:)'... She is going to see me this Tuesday and says she wants to put me in their new "BOD POD"... it measures body fat, lean muscle, calories expeded... it is a very cool thing... This way we can see how many calories my body needs on a regular day and adjust my eating accordingly. She has told me before that I am not eating enough... maybe this is it? I eat around 1200-1500 calories a day.. and I am on my feet all day at work (TSA at the airport).. I easily go over 10,000 steps every day. So.... Tuesday it is!!!

I am so excited about this!!! I keep trying and trying and I just cannot do it on my own... I need help!!! My goal is to lose 25 lbs by mid May when I go home fo Ohio for my Mom's memorial service....

I feel this is an unexpected blessing sent my way..... Someone is watching over me:)

    Thanks Sunny:)...Im sorry as well to hear about your Dad... Hugs...it is very hard! You can Google "Bod Pod" and it has a picture of it.. It is like a capsule and they put you in it , close the door, and measure your lean muscle mass, fat, calories expenditure, then the dietician can calculate how many calories a day you should be eating... I found some info on line about it... I am so excited!

    I will stay in touch.. Hard working full time, but I will try to keep in touch.

    How wonderful for you my friend. I know you can do it. You are one of the strongest
    persons I know. I will be here so let me know how you are doing from time to time.
    The Bod Pod sounds interesting. Is it like the Fit Bot? Sounds like maybe it is. Hope
    it helps.

    So sorry to hear about your Mom. I don't think I knew this. I too lost my Father in July so know how you are feeling. It is tough! I had been doing very well but yesterday while we were in town, a sadness just enveloped me. I was able to talk to DH about it and I felt better. There are just things that will trigger a memory and then, I miss him so much.

    Take care and have a lovely day. Good to see you back on track and goal oriented.
