Week 4 already. Man these weeks have flown by. This week has been a little rough. Not been able to go to the gym because I’ve been sick wth sinus/cold but done pretty good on my eating and did some Zumba. Lost a couple of pounds. Today was the first time this week I had to take insulin. It was in th he low 200s which is not too bad. Next week going to start increasing my workouts.
Ok it’s been a couple of weeks now. Not quite as hard as I thought it would be at least the eating part. The exercise has been rough. I Lost a couple of pounds but can’t hardly move. My blood sugar which normally ranges in the high 300’s is down to 117 (yeahfinally in range). My main goal on this journey was to get off of insulin and I am hopefully moving in the right direction. I now realize this is not just a diet. It is a life change.
I’m thankful for my family’s support and HIS Radio. Most of all i want to thank my savior for keeping me focused . God has really helped me stay motivated. When vendors bring in doughnuts I just think of the calories and sugar that is in them and the amount of exercise I have to do to work off one bite and decide quickly that is just not worth it.
Reality Sets In
Before last week my day consisted of sitting at my desk at work eating junk food all day. Soda was my weakness. Drinking four or more a day to keep me alert at work. I also drank several cups of coffee loaded with sugar. The worst thing about my past eating habits is, I am a diabetic who takes insulin 3 times a day. Needless to say joining rbl has been a drastic change for me. I started Friday and cut out all soda and sugar from my diet. Next was bread. I went from taking in over 3000 calories a day to 1200 to 1300. I never realized how fast calories add up. Logging in my food intake has really made me aware of what I eat. I also started walking on my breaks at work. I have made it to the gym twice this week and started doing aerobics at home. My past diets have always failed. This time feels so different. I am more confident I am going to do this. I feel God has given me the strength to accomplish my goals. My husband has been really supportive this week. He made sure the house was clean when I got home from work and helped me with my workouts at the YMCA. Im grateful to His radio for the life changing opportunity. Kristy Bailey
