The doctor also said he would like for her to keep her carbohydrates at 150 grams daily. So, now we are watching sodium and carbs closely, as well as cholesterol and fat. Food labels are my new best friend, and all meals other than breakfast, which consists of Cheerios and a banana, are made at home from scratch. I believe this event is a blessing in disguise as an opportunity for a better, healthier lifestyle. It's been a life-changing event for both mom and me; I know am committed now more than ever to being healthy.
Regarding being healthy, tomorrow starts my third month on Weight Watchers. Since starting the plan on 01.01.14, I've tracked everything I've put in my mouth and have not gone over my points. To date, I've lost 29.6 pounds. I don't think it's extremely obvious yet, but my clothes fit better and I feel better. I've gone to the gym every week, taking Body Pump (weights) and Step (cardio). I'm very encouraged and excited about my progress!
Many prayers have been answered this year, and I am thankful for each of these and for all of my many blessings. Three things I desire: That my parents be happy and healthy, that I have gratitude for all the wonderful blessings in life, and that my appreciation always outweigh my expectation.
