Happy Weekend Best Buddies,

October is starting fairly well - I completed two productive workouts and have kept my carbs down.

Today I was at a clothing store. I was grabbing tops to try on - and they all were too big! I had to go to the petite area so the sleeves and length would fit right. I bought a P-L and a P-M top. AND, I was able to zip and button size 12 black jeans so I bought them - they are tight - but once down another 2-4 pounds they should be good. I have a pair of the same jeans in my closet size 10 that I bought last year - but I will have to hit my goal weight, or below, for those to fit comfortably.

My eight day business trip starts Tuesday and will go until the following Tuesday. The best part is the venue has a well equipped gym and indoor swimming pool. I will have a refrigerator in my room and the food is varied enough that I can stay on my plan. Last time I went on the same training trip, I actually came home with a loss!

"To achieve great things, be a great dreamer!"
I am dedicated, determined and diligent.

Greetings my Best Buddies,

Happy October to all! Another new month to experiment and practice new habits to help myself continue forward.

It has been a strange week - On Monday, I had my annual physical with a doctor who is somewhat new to me. I am doing great and feel well - and what does she want to do? Start tinkering with my thyroid medication! Those of you who have hypothyroid will understand that once you are on a stable dose, you do not want to change things. It impacts metabolism, appetite, sleep, energy levels, body temperature, etc. I said, "No changes, thank you very much." She was not happy with me. I have been on the same dose for over 10 years - if it ain't broke, why try to fix it?

But they did force a flu shot and a shingles vaccine on me. I do not like flu shots for various reasons; and the shingles vaccine caused a huge red bump at the injection site. Geez!

The best part is my lipids were all good! Triglycerides down, HDL up, and LDL in an acceptable range - could be a little lower but OK. Oh - and blood pressure 100/76 and resting heart rate 64 !

SO ALL those who were concerned about ketogeneic diets killing us with all the fat can rest easy now!

I am dedicated, determined and diligent.

Greetings Best Buddies!

Thank you all so much for the great encouragement in yesterday's journal!

My primary goal is to change my body composition - which is build muscle and lose bodyfat. My weight loss is very slow - but I am determined to keep losing fat which I believe eventually moves the "Idiot Box."

Today was mildly difficult because my husband woke me at 7:00am saying his heart was racing the previous three hours - so off we went to the ER! He is fine but he had been started on a new medication last week that seemed to interact with his other ones. We spent four hours at the ER...but everything was normal and he now feels fine.

I cancelled my early gym class - BUT ended up still going to my class a little later in the day! I was relieved to get my workout in today! And of course, that my DH is fine.

And NEW words of the week!
