Default April Accountability

ACCOUNTABILITY

ACTIONS THAT REFLECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE

This is NOT a Challenge - it is a place for us to record our daily behaviors (behaviours) toward being personally responsible for our EFFORTS. We cannot control our OUTCOMES - weight - however, we can control our EFFORTS - daily actions aimed at losing/maintaining weight.

If you want to give this thread a try, just post 1 message on this thread. Each day during the month, all of the Age 50+ ladies are invited to add to their original message (using the "edit" button) by updating information about actions they have taken toward meeting their goal of losing/maintaining weight.

There is no single format - feel free to be creative. The winners on this thread are all of us who continue to work toward being accountable for our actions!

Eat a piece of frozen mango when I feel hungry. Have 14 pieces when I awaken in the morning.

April 1 : 229 Walked.
2 : 228 Life is good. Walked.
3 : 228
4 : 227 Noticed in the mirror yesterday that my blouses are starting to hang. I'm almost afraid to say it, but snacking, instead of a three course meal, every two to three hours has really made this weight loss easier. I actually enjoy it.
5 : 226 exercising every three hours seems to be working. It's not hurting.
6 : 226 Continue doing what I'm doing
7 : 227 Keep doing what I'm doing
8 : 227 Eat one (7 calories) or two pieces of frozen mango between 9pm and midnight if I'm hungry. Quickly takes away any hunger.
9 : 226 Walked
10:225 walked
11:223 walked
12:225 Easter
13:226
14:227
15:226 Yeah! Going back down.

Here I am . . . will simplify this month so I don't gobble up so much space . . . don't yet know what I'll track though.

Okay -- I'm going to track the same stuff as last month; just going to arrange it differently so it takes up less room. Once again, I'll be aiming for an average of around 1400 Net Calories (Carbs - Fibre) and a 40/30/30 (Carb/Fat/Protein) split of those calories.

Here's my place. I didn't do well in March, ended up gaining 1/2 lb. We ate out way too much. We are now home and I hope to do better this month. One good thing is that I tried on some old jeans (you know the skinny ones you keep just in case!) and I was able to fit several of them! So that made me feel better. I will track my weight, calories, carb servings, exercise and blood sugar.
March 31st weight was 165.5.

4/1/09 164 lbs (now why didn't that show up yesterday!), bs high, 1620 calories and 16 carb servings (too high). No exercise but busy at home and shopping.
4/2/09 165 (very tired of this number!), bs high, bad eating day. Don't know what's wrong with me!
4/3/09 167 (well this is even worse!), 1255 calories, about 11 carb servings, bs good. out of town, eating out so think I did pretty well.
4/4/09 166, bs high, 1466 calories, 10 carb servings, no intentional exercise.
4/5/09 165, bs high, 1564 clories, 11 carb servings, only exercise was shopping.
4/6/09 164 (finally!), bad eating day
4/7/09 165, bs little high, 1404 calories, 11 carb servings, only exercise was light housework.
4/8/09 164.5, bs high then later good, 1510 calories, 13 carb servings, only exercise was light housework.
4/9/09 163.5 (yea!), bs good, 1294 calories, 12 carb servings. stair climbing and slow walking.
4/10/09 163.5, 1254 calories, 12 carb servngs, bs good.
4/11/09 162 !!!
4/12/09 164, ate lunch out and est 1964 calories today, my food diary says only 8 carb servings but I'm sure it was more like 10 or 11 at least.
4/13/09 165.5! 1428 calories, 10 carb servings.
4/14/09 163.5, 1503 calories, 13 carb servings.
4/15/09 162.5, 1640 calories, 10 carb servings, bs high.
4/16/09 162.5 Doctor appt. He was pleased with my 4 lb weightloss (since last visit in Dec) A1C was 6.7, not bad but it is rising. Doc gave me a prescription for med, but I told him I want to continue to try 1-3 more months to see if I can get control before I give in and make med. calories today were 1517 and carb servings 13. bs high and then later good. Trying to be as careful about fat as the carbs since they play a role in insulin resistance.
4/17/09163.5, bs a little high, 1343 calories, 12 carb servings. slow walking and stairs. bs good tonight.
4/18/09 162.5, bs a little high, 1328 calories, 12 carb servings, slow mall walking incl. some stairs.
4/19/09 162 (yea!), bs high then later good, 1439 calories, 12 carb servings. My dh said he is beginning to notice my weight-loss!
4/20/09 161.5 (yea!!), bs high then later good, little mall walking, 30 min stretch and 40 min cardio, 1384 calories, 12 carb servings.
4/21/09 162, bs high then good later, 1336 calories, 11 carb servings. No exercise except shopping.
4/22/09 162.5, bs high then low before lunch, 30 min stretch, 40 min cardio, 1065 calories, 12 carb servings.
4/23/09 163, bs high then good later, 40 min yoga stretch, 40 min cardio,

4/24/09 162.5, bs high, 1720 calories (dinner out!), 10 carb servings.
4/25/09 162, I've had to return two orders for clothes that were too big! bs very good, 1531 calories, 11 carb servings.
4/26/09 162, bs slightly high but best it's been in am for a long time, this afternoon it was very good, 1611 calories, 14 carb servings. Too much too early in the day...hope I can keep from eating tonight! edited 4/27 ended up eating about 100 more before bed.
