DONE SOMETHING RIGHT

So.... I got a text from my Doctor yesterday with my HBa1c result.


ABOVE:  I was worried that I wouldn't have a drop... but I did!
Not as good as Stew's, but still a drop.
So, onward and downward, I just have to work a bit harder on the food choices long term.

There is NO WAY I want to end up on an insulin pump (which is what she wanted to do with me and Stew!).

Happier thoughts... I've got weigh in at Weight Watchers at lunchtime today.
I THINK I will have a small loss again.
Time will tell.

After the meeting, I am going to grab a few groceries (not a full shop) and come home.

By then it will be time to pick up the kids from school.  

ONWARD...

I hate posting FAT photos of me... but come on... we all know I got fat again!
So.... here's where I'm at:


ABOVE:  Three months.  Last two walking at least 3 times a week.  Something is working... no doubt a combination of being a bit more careful with the food choices, and the walking.
Next photo in November.


ABOVE:  Keera has Mufti Day at school today... so this is what she wanted to wear.  Bloody cute kid.  *smiles*  She sure takes a nicer photo than me! 

AND THE WEIGH IN RESULT IS IN... I lost .700 grams this week.   So I'm happy with that. 😁

What an awesome day it is ... three positives today.  My blood result, my progress photos and a loss again.  Cool eh?  *smiles*

Thanks for all the lovely comments today... I was a bit hesitant to put those photos up... but bit the bullet!  

It's been a busy evening helping sort out a couple of walk routes with 'THE BOSS' lady.  But she got there in the end.

Time to wind down and enjoy the next couple of hours before bedtime.

  6. That photo comparison is wonderful! What is the actual weight difference? Regarding your HbA1c, if you cut more of the glucose spiking foods you will see a huge difference next time (note I was careful not to suggest you go low carb.. hehe...) Well done, it's exciting isn't it to feel 'on track' again and doing something positive? I'm looking forward to seeing those comparison photos of you melting away.

    I think when you lose the weight this time it will be different - you now realise how easy it is to regain and hopefully changes you make will be permanent. Weight loss is only part of the journey, it's the maintenance when the real struggle begins and I'm sure you can do it. Keep up the great work!!!

I know you've posted some online articles that you like re: eating and health. Can you please post a link to another as I have to reduce my weight and specifically my cholesterol.... thanks, Christy

    3. I find dietdoctor.com is the best place now for everything low carb and sensible! Loads of articles, recipes, movies, medical knowledge, diabetes information and success stories. You may have to pay a monthly fee for additional information but comparatively it's very cheap.

  7. I don't comment on here often but I just wanted to tell you that you are doing such a good job!! The photos show a definite difference - the walking is changing your shape (subtle but it's there!) Keep it up and you will get there before you know it.
