Page UPDATES for 2019...

*Happy 2019 to you all! I hope this year brings much good health & happiness to you!...
*December 4th- I’ve lost weight! Down to 188 lbs-the weight I was when I moved to upstate NY Nearly 12 year ago! I started my journey@401 lbs & I’ve lost 213 lbs to date! My first goal weight is 148 lbs with a new goal date of April 23rd,2020! If I don’t Ike where I am@ I’ll go for the goal of 130 lbs...
*October 11th—Had dr appt. Sugar A1C was up to 8.4 for latest blood work. Yet when I test daily@ home it is within normal levels. Dr wants to explore more meds. Meanwhile, people I’ve told are wondering why I haven’t seen an endocrinologist. So I’ve asked for a referral. I’m always stressed when I go to dr(white coat syndrome). But even more so with him pushing meds on me when he knows I am hypersensitive to medications. Thinking of switching drs. I am doing everything right when it comes to eating healthy & keeping active. My A1C reading before last was 7.2 & dr wants it@7.0. I’ve been stressed with losing my mother this year & the getting her estate settled. Plus near losses of family members with their health issues.Also lost 2 of my kitty kids within a few months of one another. Been a lot going on so it’s been a rough year & a half! I’m just ready for hibernation mode to kick in all the way for the Winter & be able to get more relaxed! It is then that I will be able to recharge! Been A lot of changes-mostly positive & some I’m not sure about. Just focusing on me & my health is hard for me when I am more about helping others...trying to find more balance in my life as right now I am feeling like I’m knocked off kilter a bit!

*September 17th— Lost weight!! Now down to 194 lbs with a goal of 148 lbs & if not,130 lbs. Goal date February 26th,2020.I’ve lost approx 40 lbs so far this year!...#motivated

*July 12th—A1C went from 7.2 (4 months ago)up to 7.8! I don’t get it! I’m doing everything right as far as eating healthy & being active—doctor thinks the recent stress(losing mom & everything) may be a factor!...have no idea what else to do to bring it back down! Aside from meds with side affects that make one want to steer clear of the medication! I’m already hypersensitive to medications! The doctor tried to put me on Trulicity & sorry but I want to live!...
*July 11th—I’ve lost 17 lbs since March 10th! I am now just 65 lbs from my goal of 148 lbs! New goal date 2/25/2020! Will see how I look@148 lbs & go from there!...
*May 5th—I’ve lost 5 lbs since March 10th!! My new goal date is February 5th,2020 & my goal weight is 148 lbs. We will see how I look!...if not, I will go from there!...to 130 as scale states should be my goal...my doctor wanted me@170 lbs but that is not enough & Casper thinks 120 lbs but that may be too low! So first goal is 148 & 2nd goal is 130...
*I saw Doctor April 11th. He was indeed very happy with my progress! My blood work was great! Keep doing what I’m doing! Just increasing my steppage since it’s gotten warmer out!
*I see my doctor again in April for follow up. I know my doctor will be impressed with my progress since last July 2018 Doctor appt! I know I’ve gained muscle mass & toned up since then as I can see it! Goal for doc appt—get back on patient portal!...

*For being active in a Wellness group in February 2019 I won a special Bluetooth scale(Eufy brand) that syncs with Fitbit & my iPad! I received it today! It tells you everything you want to know & then some! The bad news?! My old scale lied! Lol! (So disregard the old figures of lost weight as that’s been updated todayMarch 10th!) It said I weighed 47 lbs less than I do! So I have a new goal as I changed it from doctor’s goal @170 lbs to my goal @148 lbs. The scale states a goal@130 lbs! So I’ll do my goal of 148 lbs(81 lbs to lose)& go from there!... Motivated & I know I CAN do this as I’ve gotten this far! (**Wooo hooo! I went from 401 down to 229!)Big bummer that it wasn’t more!...turned to hyper motivated @warp speed! As you can imagine!....Just makes me all the more determined to continue this journey & reach my goals! Here’s to better health & happiness so positive as we progress in 2019! Who’s with me?!... sneaker high five fist bump #moveitin2019 #goalsofmotivation #positivefocus

UPDATE 12/7/18:
I’ve lost another 8 lbs making me 12 lbs from my goal of 170 lbs! I’ve lost 219 lbs to date & starts my journey@401 lbs!! My new goal date has been pushed up to January 19th,2019!!

UPDATE 11/14/18:
I’ve lost another 8 lbs making me 21 lbs from goal of 170 lbs! I’ve lost 210 lbs to date & started my journey@401 lbs! My new goal date is January 28th,2019.

Sidenote:
I think I am going to go for the 148 lb goal once I hit the 170 lb goal as I am still pretty flabby!

#MOVEIT #2018goals #fitbitgoals

UPDATE 8/31/18:
I’ve lost 5 lbs since July 6th! I am 29 lbs from my first goal of 170 lbs. I’ve lost 202 lbs to date! & I have a new goal date of December 11th,2018! Which happens to be my late father’s birthday & day before my Baby—my partner in sublime-my soulmate!— Casper’s Birthday!

UPDATE 7/31/18:
Saw doctor today & found out I’ve lost 1 LB since 7/6/18! It’s not much but it adds up! I’ve lost 198 lbs since I started this journey! More details TBA!... new goal date is 11/24/18...

UPDATE 7/12/18:
Looking for a female fitness buddy in the Hudson Falls NY area with likeminded goals.

As I get closer to my goal still not liking what I see! Setting small goals. Almost to first goal of 170 lbs. Then second goal is 148 lbs. & if still not liking what I see in mirror-120 lbs. with a possible 134 lbs instead... I’m currently looking for a new doctor as mine just is not helping me....

*GOAL #1: 34 lbs away
*GOAL#2: 56 lbs away
*GOAL#3: 116 lbs away
**(possibly 70 lbs instead that would bring me to 134 lbs)

UPDATE 7/6/18:
I’ve lost 8 more lbs wooo hoo! & I’ve set a new goal date of November 3rd,2018...That makes me 34 lbs from docs goal of 170lbs. But I’m reaching for goal of 148 lbs as I still see a lot of flabbage that needs toning & stuff...Casper’s says our scale is correct so I’ll know if that docs scale weighs me wrong on the 31st.
I’ve lost 197 lbs since I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I was@401 lbs when I started & I am now@204 lbs. I’m almost to one-Der Land!(100’s)... Lean,clean,& green mixed with high fiber plan...doing it on my own... watching what I eat & exercise...I can see me losing another 56 lbs instead of 34 though...that’d bring my weight to 148 lbs instead of 170 lbs...That would equal 253 lbs weight loss! Casper has lost 260 lbs! We’ve both lost a person!...well he lost over a person!...

UPDATE 4/25/18:
I've lost 4 lbs more!! Making that 16 lbs lost so far this year! Slow but better than none@ all! I've added one more day to my goal date making that September 20th,2018... I am now 42 lbs. from my goal of 170 lbs! I'll see how I look@ 170 lbs & if I am not liking what I see I'll go for the 148 lb goal...

UPDATE 4/10/18:
From 1/26-2/8/18 I lost 8 lbs & now I can add 4 more lbs to that=12 lbs lost so far for the year!! Slow but getting there! My new goal date is September 19th,2018. I am now 46 lbs from goal doc set me@which is 170 lbs. But I think I need to lose more than that.I'm thinking more like 68 lbs more which would put me@ 148 lbs. Casper thinks more like 96 lbs that would put me@ 120 lbs for my 5 ft 9 in tall frame. I've always been told I am between a medium & large frame. My doc says 120 would make me too scrawny...

UPDATE 2/8/18:
I've lost 8 lbs. making my weight now 220 lbs. I've lost 181 lbs. With another 50 to go! New goal date 8/11/18.My doc's goal weight is 170 lbs. I'll see what I think when I get there. I'm thinking more like maybe 148 lbs.(somewhere in the middle) & Casper is thinking more like 120 lbs.(on the lower end). I am 5 ft 9 in tall. My doc says if I get below 170 lbs I will look too scrawny. I always thought I was big boned but my doc says between medium & big boned. My BMI shows a healthy weight for me as being between 125 lbs. & 168 lbs. What do you think?!...I can do this!! :)

UPDATE 1/29/18:
Received blood work results & my sugar & cholesterol levels are up. With some adjustments this will be remedied...
JANUARY 2018
NEW YEAR! NEW ME! New updates!
Starting with a fresh slate(profile)!
Finally getting around to updating my profile! It was a busy 2017 & 2018 is just getting started!!
I see my doctor for followup & weigh in @on the 26th & will update my profile from that point on...considering gastric bypass surgery as I am not losing the weight as fast as I'd like & my doctor tells me I am a candidate.We'll see what he says @ this appointment. I know it's not an easy fix. You have to work @ continuing the healthy lifestyle to keep the weight off. I've been on Casper's GB journey with him since he had his surgery October 2013. So I know what it takes.Discipline,determination,& being positive & believing in yourself! I will let you know what I decide! I have been on the lean,clean,& green with Casper & I just need to be more active than I've been. Summer & Fall 2017 I had a job watching 2 beautiful children nearly 24/7 & that sure kept me busy. That is until their mother lost her job & well that situation didn't end well.I ended up being sickly with colds & flu into the end of 2017.This year I am much more rested & I know that 2018 is my year!! So I am hoping to go in a different direction this year with a career I am looking into! Wish me luck! Casper & I are doing great & still looking into buying a home of our own when the time is right for us!...I will keep you updated on that!...I've lived in Upstate NY 10 years as of 1/4/18!!... :)

MY JOURNEY TO A HEALTHIER ME:

Hi everybody! My name is Kelly & I have been a member of SP since July 20th, 2010. In the time that I've been here I've lost 181 lbs.(I weighed 401 lbs.)with the majority lost since August 17th,2011. I have just 50 lbs. to go to meet my (doc's stated)goal weight of 170 lbs. by my new goal date of 8/11/18!! Casper feels I could lose another 120 lbs. But that would put me closer to 120 lbs! My doctor feels if I go into the 120-140 lbs range I will be too scrawny looking for my 5 ft 9 in frame! In March 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes(-found out I'd had it for 5 yrs.-),under active thyroid,& high cholesterol. My sugar is now normal as are my thyroid & my cholesterol. The doctor took me off my sugar & cholesterol meds in April 2015! & if I lose that last 50 lbs. & maintain it for awhile he will consider taking me off my thyroid med!! My doctor is very impressed with my progress & says that he is going to mark me down as a success story. I know that it has taken me longer to lose the weight this time around. But I am doing it the healthy way. Not due to being under stress. I am doing it through living a healthier lifestyle. I AM seeing results & you can too!!... We all hit plateaus but we make our way through it. Please don't give up!...

The 1st time around in 2007 I lost 109 lbs. within like 4 months time. Refer to pic of me (with my "rocker chick" look)at my thinnest. I was like 18 lbs. from my weight loss goal when I came to the Adirondacks to better my life on 1/4/2008.I'm the happiest I've been in a long time! I came here to build a positive life with my "partner in sublime" Casper. We've been together since 3/29/07! First met as kids & reunited some 23 yrs. later & have been inseparable ever since!! Unfortunately I had been under a lot of stress up to that point & was severely malnourished. Had I not removed myself from the situation I was in at that time with the help of my love I probably would not have survived. Because I was sicker than myself or anyone knew. So Casper literally saved my life!! & I owe him a lot for all that he has done for me! He is a good man! & I am so blessed to have him in my life! We are actually working on buying a home of our own & hope to be moving within the next 2 years(by 2020)!!...

Many ask me-"How did you do it?!" & my answer is:
I have cut my portions by more than half. I am eating "Lean, clean, & Green!" Eating lots of fresh fruits & vegetables. I eat chicken & fish. I eat only the leanest of red meats(93%+)these days. I don't eat much pastas & bread anymore. I've cut down on the processed foods & the takeout/eating out. I rarely have soda & I have only about 2-3 cups of coffee a day. I don't crave/ overindulge in sweets like some & for that I am thankful. I haven't given up things completely. I just learned more about moderation on the not so good things & focusing more on the foods that are good for me!
