Hope and encouragement
Went for an "official" weigh in at Carolyn's doctor and weighed in at 216 pounds and that is what my scale said when I started the journey. So I am a little disappointed and just a little discouraged!
Yesterday went shopping for Christmas and I kinda had Wendy's boneless chicken wings and boy am I paying for it today. My stomach is really churning and don't stand behind me you will get gassed away!!!
Right now I am making a very healthy turkey soup. I have been stewing the carcass since noon and the meat has fallen right off. I am going to add fresh cauliflower, fresh broccoli and whole wheat rotini. I have added some Mrs. Dash to the broth and this house smells like Thanksgiving all over again.
My journey has been hit with some u turns and wrong turns (the wings) but you learn from your mistakes. I do know this that my blood sugars have been fantastic and taking in less insulin (which is a growth hormone). My walking is getting better--still with a walker or cane--but getting better.
I am glad that I started this journey and looking forward to hitting my first goal!
