One Day

That's right folks, one full day of being OP and feeling awesome about it. I know you've probably seen a few of these posts from me...but I have to shout it out. That way if I happen to lose it again, I can search and find THIS post.

Notes to self : Mandie...you feel AWESOME being in control like this. You ate the right foods yesterday, and did not once feel like caving because you were satisfied! Yeah, that's right...satisfied!!! The lunch time run was the mid day energy burst you needed...as well as those heart pumping exercises during the Biggest Loser commercials. REMEMBER how good this feels. I'm "bottling" this up for you to use at a later time. The motivation is very thick in here now...so I'm totally saving it!!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay...got that out. So today I've been trying to think of what I can do "differently" with my exercise and it dawned on me...a bike ride with the kiddos! OOOH what fun!!! The temps are wonderful, and the colors of the leaves are WOW! Totally gonna ask Hunney to put the seat back on my bike for the little guy and get to pedaling!!

*Side note...test results back from Drs office with my cholesterol and thyroid - all good. No more trying to blame my lack of weightloss to the stupid thyroid. Phooey...it IS just me. Well, now I know and can grasp this with both hands!!!

You are doing GREAT. Hang in there. Have you been checked for insulin resistance? It's different than diabetes and can cause slow periods of weight loss even if you are working out and eating well.

The bike ride with the kids? That sounds like so much fun!

I am glad the tests came back okay. As nice as it would be to have something to pinpoint, it's a blessing to not have a life sentence of medication!

Congrats on feeling empowered and making it through the day today. Keep up the good work!

Glad your results came back good. I don't always agree with the statement that because you have a thyroid problem, you can't lose weight. I have dealt with Hypothyroidism since I was 19 ( I am now 36) and I am still not on track with that, yet I can lose weight. I have done it two other times before now, so it isn't just the Atkins diet I was on that did it either.

Anyhoo! Good for you for being on track.
