I gained 2 lbs this week, back up to 179.4 but it’s also that time of the month and my sweet tooth has kicked in so I’ve indulged a bit not terrible but some. I made some toffee this week with a new recipe and ate a few pieces plus Mike bought some red licorice for our hike yesterday so stole a few piece of them also. Now today was hard, no sugar other than what’s in the foods I eat and today was minimal because of the indulges but I know better and I know just a couple days of indulging in sugar takes almost a week to get it back out of my system. I’ll do it.
My book is awesome, I’m learning quite abit about turning 50, mentalpause (like my new word) because though my body is changing my mind has a lot to do with it also. I’m still learning about Thyroid Disease and what I can do.
I am heading to my doctor on Tuesday, my regular doctor. Just for a second opinion. I want to know what he thinks and just have him know what’s going on too. My mama and aunt have had issues with varicose veins and blood clots and hospital stays and …. well lots of stuff so just to be sure all is okay I’m going to go get checked out. It is not something I can afford to do but I also can’t afford to have to have time off or being down or worse dead so I’ll go and see what’s what.
Earlier this week I asked for help and a few of you offered some sweet and great comments and suggestions, I really appreciated them all. It helped me to see and figure out so there is no more woe is me. I do have to say I asked for help on the CDCC post this week and not to many of you stopped by to offer any advice and I did think that this challenge was about support and advice and more. I know we’re all busy so that’s fine but do check in and see how others are doing because some really do need help, love, advice, support and more.
I have no intentions of ever giving up. I really want to get into that dress but it may or may not happen but the point of any life style change or diet or whatever it is that’s helping you become the healthiest you can be is what’s important and that’s what I’m doing, not giving up.
So there’s my Christmas Dress Count Down Challenge update.
I will stop by each and everyone of you, like I do each week at least once and wish you the best of luck, kick your butt, offer any advice I might of learned along the way or just be there for you. Take care my friends and have a great and blessed week.
