    Kathy,

    You are knocking on that one der land door!!

    Full speed ahead.

    I can't stay on long.

    Mid challenge weight up at 213.4

    will have to measure tomorrow.

    got blood labs back. Improvements but no cures yet.

    Blood glucose 106 down from 137
    HDL cholesterol (healthful) 61 up from 60
    LDL cholesterol (lousy) 82 down from 122
    Hemoglobin A1C 6.2% down from 6.4%

    all four changes were to the good. My next test will be in 3 months. I will post my results and my diet guidelines in the kitchen. I will up my vegetable intake and shrink my grains intake. I will put dates on my chocolate so I will not inadvertently have more than I should. I will redouble my efforts to take my evening pills which I sometimes forget.

    I wish you all a very good day. I have to go prop my arm up.
    Smoochies,

    Janine,
    It really depends on how active you are getting and if you plan on just continuing with what you are doing or if you plan on increasing time or distance on it.
    If you plan on doing what you are doing now, for quite awhile, I'd say shoot for a goal of a TOTAL of 1 1/2-2 inches lost per month... not per body part but altogether.... you should be able to make that with what you are doing and if you continue to watch what you eat and how much water you can consume.
    Stay well within your boundaries for sodium as it really makes a difference in the inches lost. Water retention will kill you every time.

    Good morning. Weight was 188. gained that one pound back.
    It seems like i lose two pounds and gain 1 back.
    but it is still progress

    I forgot my measurements at home on a piece of paper, i will post them tonight.

    Breakfast was Greek yogurt with strawberries

    Lunch will be noodles with a this Chinese sauce on them. I believe it is about 300-350 calories.

    Dinner is going to be a chicken broccoli casserole.

    Today i have already walked for 30-40 minutes and run up 3 flights of stairs. I plan on coming up the stairs at lease 2 more times for the day and also walking for another 30 minutes.

    Yesterday was a horrible day for me.
    McDonald's sausage mcmuffin and sausage burrito.
    Lunch was skipped
    Snack was a bag of chips
    Dinner was 2 burritos from Taco Bell
    To top it all off, i did no physical activity yesterday

    But today is a new day and i am doing much better already!!!
