Weigh In - the good and the bad

So since we are in a new month - it is time for an up date at how my new lifestyle is going and what my results have been this month.

So I was a bit disappointed this past weigh in because it showed that I had not lost anything for the week. So I was discouraged. But one of the biggest things that I am having to do is - not base my participation in a healthy lifestyle based on what the scales say. I will continue on.

The good news is that I did not gain any weight for the week. And even more good news - I lost a total of 5 pounds for the month of September- bringing the grand total of weight loss to............
17 pounds!!!!!

Something that I was impressed to do this morning, is to start keeping track of at least what fruits and veggies I am eating each day. I am thinking of having a food diary - and keep track of what I am eating. That way when I have the weeks like this week where I really did not show any weight loss I can go back through and see what could be the cause. Another good reason to keep the journal is to make sure that I am getting a variety. In order to be healthy it is good to have a variety of healthy foods so you can get the nutrition that you need. And by keeping a journal - you will see gaps of where you need to fill in some different fruits and veggies.

I am continuing to work towards getting more movement and exercise into my life. And I am continuing to make better choices in what I eat and drink.  I am hoping to have at least this much success with losing weight for the month of Oct. I have an appointment with my oncologist in the middle of November and I would love to be close to if not at the weight I was before chemo. That would be awesome!!! I will be checking in at the beginning of November for another Weight in. Please continue to pray for me - because it is only through the help of Jesus Christ that I am able to continue on this path way. There has been some similarities that I have noticed about weight loss  and our Christian walk and I am hoping to be able to articulate it clearly soon  - and when I can I will share.
