Good morning and welcome to the first weigh in of the New Year. I hope everyone's year is off to a good start.
Mine has been very busy. I think I mentioned last week about going through some things and weeding out "stuff", as my New Year's goal - well, I've done just that. I've cleaned out 2 closet (have one to go), undersink cabinets, dresser drawers and other storage areas. Some just got sorted out and reorganized; others got totally dismantled and most of the stuff was either thrown away or hauled off for donation.
I've tried to do some sorting/cleaning every day of the new year - not always in the same room, but trying to finish a room within a couple of days!! I'm leaving some of the floors and until last because I keep dragging dust/sand from one room to the other. This morning I've been going through my calligraphy supplies - I have so much "stuff" I almost tend to forget what I have. Sorting it out reminds what's here and that I need to use it before I buy more supplies!!
I'm also trying to convince husband that we need new cabinets in the kitchen, but he's not getting on board so I'm hoping that I can prove that getting rid of stuff will allow us to get by with a lot more cabinets than we currently have, especially, if we redesign and put the cabinets into a different configuration!!
In addition, I've been trying to walk most days. It's been pretty cool here, so instead of going in the morning we sometimes wait until after lunch, which has helped keep me awake in the afternoons rather than taking a nap. I'm still very tired all the time and sleeping all night doesn't help, but I keep trying to convince myself it's going to get better but don't really see it happening. I go for blood work on Wed, so hopefully, that will turn up something meaningful.
I haven't weighed today, but Friday when I stepped on the scale, I was down 1.2 pounds from last Sunday. I last saw my doctor on October 12 and I've lost 10 lbs in 3 months (approx 3 lbs/month). That's just before my neighbor arrived back from OR and we started walking most days, plus we made some changes in my thyroid medication, as well as my neuropathy medication and I guess that's what I needed to get started... I can tell my appetite has changed, as I'm just not as hungry as I was. I'd like to drop another 35 lbs, but we'll see how it goes!! At least it's coming off slowly, so hopefully, I'll be more likely to keep it off.
So that's my story - I hope you're off to a good start and are reaching your goals. I look forward to hearing about them.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
