Friday…Picture Day!

Today’s weight 286.6

So, it is Friday! I post my picture in the gallery and take a moment to reflect where I was and where I am. After 14 weeks following the Noom program, I am 286.6 pounds and 36.3 down. I am actually very proud of my success this week. I know two pounds doesn’t sound like much, but I have been dealing with an injury, personal stress, and all the civil strife (seems to tame of a description, but it is what I got).

How do I feel about me? I am still working on radical self-care and general self-care.
While loving my body as I am is still really hard, it is easier to see myself naked in the mirror. I don’t need to put on my PJs as soon as I get out of the shower. I can wash my face, brush my teeth, and comb my hair while naked. I am accepting myself, as I am.

General health-wise, I am walking again. This morning, I walked a mile. This is two days in a row. I wasn’t going to, but I felt something missing. I give myself permission to shorten the walk when necessary.

I continue to eat well. I raised my calorie intake to lose to 1 pound a week; I lost two. I eat very clean. Even when I slip, I slip up healthy. Huge WIN! It is hard to post a recipe daily. So, when I fix something I like, I will post it. But the recipe section of my site is slowly building.

I went for my metabolic testing. I am looking forward to seeing some lower numbers. My last testing showed my A1C was 7.2, down from 7.6. I am optimistic about my numbers. While I don’t think I will be in the non-diabetic range, I feel I will be getting closer to it. I will know on Wednesday (or maybe earlier if the lab posts the results to my account.)

I also made an eye appointment and am getting new glasses! It will be fun to funk-up my appearance a little. Oh yeah, the seeing and fewer headaches will be a good thing as well.

I still don’t have the results from my Coronavirus test. I am hoping I will see them soon. My account with the lab should be live today. Please, please, please be there.

But life in the Hobbit Hole is still moving a long. Every day, I see someone I like more and more.

In this time of anger, fear, and strife, be kind–especially to yourself.
