My Happy Planner, and plans for 2018

Today, I bought a Happy Planner.

Hopefully it will inspire or motivate me to read more, to keep on track with my diet and eventual exercise, and I'm a big nerd and it has stickers and I'm totally a gold star kinda girl. It's also lovely. :)

Goals for 2018 (not only weight/diet related): 
  • first 100 days of the year is a challenge to NOT eat out at restaurants
  • Lose 30 lbs before my trip to Denver in April.
  • Start a regular exercise routine
  • Start walking home from the bus stop (in the spring!)
  • Travel more
  • Read one book a month. (I miss reading!)
  • Continue doing slam poetry, no matter how nerve wracking it is
  • Write more
  • Stay stable enough and on top of things enough for my doc to write me 3 month scrips
I'm sure I'll think of more later, but that's where I'm at for now!

Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition review

Is it just me or is Chris Powell, the personal trainer for EMWLE,  the happiest guy alive?
Reality TV
I must tell you, I used to hate TV shows about weight loss. Then came Heavy and I changed my tune. EMWLE is another shining example of what people are capable of. Sure these types of shows are unrealistic. Not everyone has someone to live with them, to be accountable to, to pay for their food and buy them a home gym. Sure, not everyone has the ability to quit their job and work full time on their weight loss, exercising 5 hours a day, 6 days a week.
I think all the negative talk about how unrealistic it is obscures the message though. Maybe you won't lose 250+ lbs this year, but you can start. You can put in what you can and see results. I know, I have. I had 150 lbs to lose and now have 71 lbs to go. I'd like to get to 100 lbs lost by October 19th, my one year anniversary of weight loss. 
Unfortunately though, Chris does not live with me, or encourage me, but in a way, with the s…

I'm on my way!

That's it, I officially have diabetes. It's early, and I can reverse it if I try. I've started taking Victoza, it's an injection medication (non insulin) that makes you digest food more slowly. Keeping you feeling fuller longer. This is EXACTLY what I have always needed, because the anti-psychotics I take for my bipolar basically turn OFF my full signal. This stuff is great. in about three weeks I have lost 15 lbs. By my next doc appt (on july 19th) I am hoping to be back in the 200's. I'm only a few lbs away as is!

I don't have much to say, other than I love this med and hope that it continues to work for me. I seem to have hit the medication jackpot. Bipolar meds are working great, I'm on neurontin now for my fibromyalgia, also working great, and now the victoza. Life feels in balance. I'm on my way!

Weigh in #4: Not much of a weigh in at all. Stupid Scale.

So, I noticed my weight fluctuating WAY too much on my old scale, I KNEW it was being FAR too kind.

If a scale can 'be kind'.

Anyhow, I bought a new one, and so now I see my old one was WILDLY off, and I have no idea how much I weighed at the start of the month or how much I've lost, realistically. I know I have dropped a pant size and that is usually like 15-20 lbs. So, I've probably lost about that much since before xmas.

Starting fresh, I'll weigh in next week with results from this new scale. Gah!
