View HAPLOTK114's food & exercise for this day
So. It's almost been a year. 25 lbs. I had hoped to be 100. Such is life. My lowest weight this year was 234. So I'm not too far away from that now. 25 lbs steady. I've had ups and downs, but I think this is a good new starting place.
80 more pounds to go. I hope to drop another 20 between now and New Years. Be the lowest I've been in a long time. I've lost focus and desire. Work sucks. It's a paycheck at this point. But it will pass. The whole system is in the crapper. I'm in isolation now, and don't see it all, but when I do get to talk to others, I see it isn't just me. That makes me feel a little better.
I've got to get more exercise in. Build more muscle = burn more calories. I need to get back to eating more veganish. As dumb as it sounds, this is what helped me drop the most weight earlier on.
My lab results have come back good. A1C is the lowest it has ever been, and within range (6.5, my highest was 11.8). With more weight loss, I may get rid of my sleep apnea and dependance on my CPAP machine. Not that it is an inconvenience, but at least I'd feel a little more normal without the Darth Vader look.
I hope to use CK more often. That too, helped keep me focused and motivated. But with so little time, and feeling like I'm pulled in 1000 different directions, this is one of the things that got put on the back burner.
