HYC

At the last minute I decided to post a HYC update. I've had a fairly upsetting week as far as scales, but that doesn't mean that I'm not working on making ME healthier. And, I don't think I did anything wrong to warrent the weight gain. I did break down and have some sympathy boneless buffalo wings last night...which doesn't make any sense. I was upset about gaining weight so I ate food that would ensure it? I do agree with y'all....too little water and irregular bathroom activities (I'm already at least down to 218...and this is after eating dinner and stuff). I usually don't have that problem (opposite), but with low carb living and little caffeine (IBS) I'm not doing as well with the bathroom stuff. How do I fix this long term if I'm eating veggies and fruit? OH, but you didn't come here to hear about bad bathroom stuff!!! Sorry for the grossness.

But, I'm back on the plan again. So, this week I will walk my 10,000 steps/day, along with eating low fat food with veggies or fruit at every meal. To get my spirit back, I plan to NOT weigh myself except on Tuesday for weigh in. It's not the major reason I'm doing this, so why stop and have a pitty party because the scale is a stinker. I know I'm doing good, so I'll stay on this regardless. I need to have NSV's to motivate me. My blood pressure is already back down to 111/74. It never was high, but it was creeping up already. So, maybe I'll post inches and sizes in addition or instead.

I understand how disappointing the setbacks can be. Don't let it get you down. We're all trying to find some kind of path to health; and the most important thing is to find the method that works for you. Learn from the mistakes and tweak accordingly!

We all have a setback now & then. Just keep on point. It will come off! Good deal on the lowered blood pressure!
