Isn't life great - I so love the changing of the seasons, we have had skiff of snow, so the cold winter can move on - but as hubby say 'In 4 months we will have flowers trying to spring up'
I am making amazing progress - just taking it one day at a time, telling myself that I just need to eat the food I have planned for the day just for today and before I know it the day has come to an end.'
Have had one small somewhat temptation when I thought this afternoon that I wouldn't mind having a Brisk Lemonade - but that came and left just a quick because as quickly it entered I told myself 'Do I really want to break the streak I am on' and my answer was 'No.' So I can say I have made it through today with 3 meals, no snacks, measuring all my food that I ate, got in my water and have written in my paper journal.
Am seeing NSV (non scale victories) even this soon in the progress. I am sleeping better, am finding I can stand longer therefore able to help out once again in the kitchen rather than having to sit and help. My IBS discomfort has improved already. Last 2 days I have taken the blood from the finger to test re sugar and diabetes. One month a go the numbers were somewhere between 6.5 - 6.9 which is good but could be a lot better. When I look at the numbers the last 2 days the numbers are in the 5.1 - 5.6 range which is a great improvement. By the way I live in Canada so if anyone reading this is in the USA your numbers for this would read higher.
Shared the program I am on with a friend today - she is in her 60's, many illnesses, walks with a cane and very obese. We talked on the phone and after asking how I was and what I was up to I shared my success with my weight. She shared that this was great and asked a lot of question and is going to get the book. I told her that should she decided that she wanted to give this a try, let me know and I would do what I can to encourage her as support is really necessary as temptation is all around us.
Tonight for dinner we made Not My Mom's Meatloaf = but rather than ground beef used ground chicken. Decided that it would be better with the beef - but that could be because we like ground beef better than ground chicken. So next time that is what we do as other wise it was good recipe
Genesis 9:3 says
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.
3 things I am grateful for today are
(1) grateful that I have followed the plan of no sugar no flour for 10 days being 100% complaint = Praise the Lord
(2) grateful for great music and that husband enjoys listening, playing the guitar and singing
(3) grateful for the city I live in
My streaks so far are as follows
Day 54 of logging onto Sparkpeople
Day 54 of tracking all food and water
Day 54 of reading the Bible with my husband
Day 10 of going no sugar and no flower and have lost 11 pounds doing so
Pedometer reads 1,592 steps = close to getting 2,000 which is 1 mile
