I am doing well with my small changes these past two weeks

I am walking after dinner every night in addition to walking to and from work and I have started my bellydancing classes again this weekend.

I am also planning my meals out and drinking more water.

I wanted to check in. I have began very good, down about 10 pounds depending upon how much water I am retaining that day!

I still am 15 pounds away from my Halloween Goal, that may need a re-commit I will do that the end of this week.

However, I have integrated the following into my lifestyle.

1. Support....check in on these boards twice a day, even if I am not posting.
2. Following the Dr. Phil Challenge on the television, reading the book and participating in the book club thread
3. Following a locarb/sbd. Enjoying the mental benefits of not eating sugar...for me that is losing the constant obsession with food.
4. Doing hypnosis. Two actual sessions, listen to my tape 2-3 times a week. Learning how to think like my "thin self".
5. Dong Fitday. Taking a protein shake and taking the additional cal/mag supplements that I should because my grandmother and my mother both had/have osteoporisis.

This week I am looking to integrate exercise. I am going to begin Curves on Wednesday. To acutally make use of the membership that I have been paying for!!! I may start today, but I need to take the puppy to the vet for a scratching shot, poor little guy is chewing himself up. Then tomorrow for an oatmeal bath.

So, I am looking at the overall integration, and while the scale victory began as my focus, I am trying to stay present to what I am doing, and how important it is for the long run!!!

Check in......kept OP, still doing everything, but did NOT make it to Curves.....this is my biggest challenge....

My guy friend wants to build me a workout area in the backyard, that will be good except when it is raining, I am also thinking about getting a trainer to get my butt working out.

I really want to go back to doing pilates again. That was my favorite thing to do. Maybe that will inspire me back to Curves....

Um, here were my small steps -

~Keep busy so I don't eat after 8pm.
~Take my vitamins every day
~Drink more water/Crystal Light. I tried the sugar free kool-aid (which I have a ton of) with some Equal, and it's not bad.
~ NO MORE Buying Snacks - I have a bunch of it already. Actually I have enough food in this house, that I am not going grocery shopping except for milk, eggs, bread, fruits & veggies.
~Bring my lunch at least 3 times this week.


I am sucking at pretty much all of these, but the water one. And that one I am only doing ok on.

I CAN do this!

I have set up a night time pattern that has helped alot. I eat about 5:30-6:00. Do dishes. Cycle for 10 minutes during the news. At 7:00-7:30 I have hot choolate sugar free. Then that is it for the night. I have no usual snack food in the house. This has helped me and my diabetes a lot.

My small change this week is to take my vitamins regularly.
So far I have managed to for the past 4 days

fern-yes, it helps when there is no junk in the house I have stocked up on celery and laughing cow cheese, almonds, unsalted cashews, pre cut baby carrots etc. so that I won't feel like eating chips.

Bad thing is there is a store downstairs in my building so I don't have to go far to get junk-just put on my slippers and take the elevator so i switch to pj's after doing the dishes and the housework so I can't easily pop downstairs

Good for you, Mauvais. DH went to the video store the other day in his long trenchcoat with his pyjamas on underneath. No shame.

Another small change! There has been a bag of oatmeal cookies (the good kind - Dad's Oatmeal) for over 2 weeks now and I have only eaten 2 - normally I would be eating 2 or 3 with a cup of tea per day - so this an accomplishment

I have noticed that I am cutting back automatically on artificial sweetners. When I started I used at least 6 teaspoons of real sugar in my 20 oz. coffee, next I switched to 4 packs of sweet & low, now I'm down to 3. Stuff just tastes too sweet. I am just listening to my body more
