The arrival of the Pump.
Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Ok, ok, been a little bit lax about SparkPeople lately.
I started my new insulin pump! I should have blogged about it right away, so that I would have sounded more excited. Anyway, I'm going to (sort of) blame it for my lack of activity on the health-front of late.
Mostly it's that thing where--you've been striving for a particular goal for so long, and now that you've reached it, you want to throw up your hands and quit? (and the pump makes that really easy, I must say).
I'm just making excuses now:
Before, when I had to give myself a shot every time I wanted a cookie, or an apple, or a cracker, I could much more easily turn it down--I hate shots enough that even cookies did not sway me.
Blah, blah, blah.
I'm trying to be focused right now on moderation. I'm still exercising, I'm still watching my portions, but I just don't want to be so anal-retentive about everything-- You know, the way you basically HAVE to be in order to lose weight?
So I'm giving myself a sanctioned break.
The pump and I are learning to get along.
I want to maintain where I am, or maybe just scale back the goals a bit. We'll see how it goes. I just need to re-evaluate, and come up with NEW goals.
