I’m terrible at coming up with blog titles. 🤔
I’ve continued to keep up with the exercise and getting my steps in, however, I got a wee bit off track with the healthy diet. Hello, Peanut Butter, oh, how I love you! I am trying to get back on track.
I had gotten my updated cholesterol levels. Some parts were improved but not enough. My primary doctor upped the dosage on the pravastatin and I wasn’t happy because I’m really trying to give myself a fair chance. Yesterday, after being reminded that it’s my body, I emailed my primary and asked for more time to improve it on my own before upping the drug. She compromised and I will be re-tested in December.
Yesterday I also saw my PDOC and I definitely lost weight! I’m not giving out numbers for two reasons. 1. It could be triggering to my readers and 2. I’m recovering from disordered eating and it’s not about the number, but about my over all health. I’ve lost the weight in a healthy way and I still plan on losing more but not to the point where it’s unhealthy. I’m really trying to be more in tune with my body.
I’ve heard people say “You aren’t fat.” and other things like that. I’m asking you to please, please not do that. You don’t have to be fat to have disordered eating. I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum and I’m really trying to find the balance and comments like that just aren’t helpful. Just encourage me to keep up the good work (in regards to me becoming healthier!)
Another thing, it feels like summer has just flown by and that all I did was work!
However, I actually ended up doing a lot of fun things, doing things around town with family and friends, meeting up with out of town friends, went to see LeAnn Rimes and met her, as well as a lot of other things. And next weekend I am going to visit my dad’s family!
I did work a lot (and the extra money was great!) but I also had a lot of fun!!
That’s just my little update!

Katie, It’s very encouraging to read your thoughts about working on losing weight. I need to lose the weight I gained last winter. I know that will be healthier for my overall physical and mental health. I also know it’s “work”. Ugh. Keep up the good work. Hugs to you. Rita
