Better Day

I had a better day today.  :-)  I was able to go to the grocery store this morning and get some good food.  I bought chicken and ground turkey and real vegetables. :-)  I had a good day sticking to my food plan, too. I only went over my bread selections by 1, and everything else was spot on! I even drank all of my water! Yay! It makes me feel good to meet my eating goals.  :-)  Two more days until weigh in.  I'm actually a bit anxious to see the results of my changes to my eating habits.  I know, I know... a few good days won't make me instantly thinner, but it's a start.  I'm encouraged by what I've been doing.  I haven't been feeling really hungry, either.

I forgot to state my goal for this month!  I'm wanting to get below 200 lbs. by the end of the month.  So I need to lose 10.6 lbs.  I'm having a hysterectomy on Dec 2nd and I don't want to be heavier than 200 lbs. when I go in.  I feel I will heal faster if I lose some of this weight.  I was over 200 in 2007 when I had an appendectomy, and it took me 2 weeks to recover.  Of course, it didn't help that they had to open me up instead of doing it laparoscopically.  I know a hysterectomy takes longer to heal.  I just want to give myself a good start.  I'll be starting my ab exercises tomorrow.  It can't hurt....

I better go to bed now.  I'm sleepy!  Sweet dreams everyone.


  1. Hang in there!!!! Im proud of you and sorry to hear about your pending surgery. If you need anything let me know.

  2. Thanks, Jerri! I'll be hanging tough. :-) I'm actually quite ready for my surgery. I've been having lots of female issues that keep getting worse. I'll be glad to get it over with. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :-)
