Well, during MONTHS and months of wanting to see change and not seeing it, I fell off my motivated wagon. I feel like the first months when I started this 7 months ago I was seeing change, I was eating well and I was exercising. For some reason I thought it'd get easier and I could lighten up. However that is NOT the case. It actually got harder to lose the weight and if I really want this weight to come off I have to work harder and harder.
It does all come down to calories in vs calories out. So documenting my food intake on Livestrong MyPlate does help. I also tend to eat too much sugar and being with PCOS I need to keep a good eye on my sugar intake. OR SO I THOUGHT! I went to the Gyno this past week for my annual appointment and guess what I found out! I no longer need to take Metformin for pre-diabetes. In fact she said my numbers were in the low side of normal. I for the past 5 years have been taking Metformin for my blood sugar! So, although I didn't see much change on the scale, my body is getting healthier! :o)
I will continue to to soldier on. This morning I woke up at 5:15 and did a 2 mile run in 20 minutes. Last night I walked with Sammi for 5 miles and we did it in 60 minutes. It felt so good, and we motored a fast past. We had great conversation, and it just felt good.
I think this morning the kids and I may go biking with some of the neighbors! :o)
Healthy living feels good.
