Things are looking up!

The appt. went really well thank goodness! Thanks for all the positve energy you sent my way. Dr. G was very nice and very thorough. He had us laughing throughout the visit which helped relieve some of the tension. We were there for an hour and never felt rushed. He has ruled out Alzheimer's but she will have blood work and an MRI to see what is going on. We have another appt. in a month. After that we went to Fish Market. We haven't been there in a few weeks so it was refreshing. I had Tilapia with Nectarine Salsa and half a Caesar salad. Tasty stuff!

I updated my bodybugg program up to the end of this year or December 27th. My goals are:
Calories Burned: 2,850 calories
Calories Consumed: 2,100 calories
Calorie Deficit: 750 calories
Steps: 7,500

I am targeted to lose 18 lbs. and be down to 247 which is 1.5 lbs. per week. That would be a total of 68 lbs. this year. That would be sweet! My main focus will be increasing calorie burn because I generally stay in the same 1,400-1,600 calorie range. I CAN DO THIS!!! Until next time...


  1. You guys were due some good news.

    68 lbs this year would be huge. And very doable. Get after it!

  2. Awesome! That's great that the new doctor seems good...
    And you can definitely meet that goal for the year!!!

  3. Glad the appt. went well and the doctor was a good one - that can make a world of difference!

    While the fish doesn't sound good, the nectarine salsa sure does!

  4. You can do it! 1.5 lbs a week is very realistic!

  5. Your lunch sounds divinely delicious. Mmmmm.

    Glad alzheimers was ruled out. Will keep you in my thoughts. :)

  6. A Fish Market sounds good to me. I love fish.

    Glad the appt went well.

    I am going to cheer you on as you lose those 18 lbs before the end of the year!!!

  7. I'm so glad that things went so well at the appointment! You have some great goals listed here and I don't doubt that you will be able to meet every one of them!

  9. What great goals! And your due date is my anniversary :) It's a lucky day, so I think you are going to make it. Glad you had a good time with your mom.

  10. That is great the Apt went well. I am loving your goals they are so atainable and realistic. I want a bodybug so bad. We played the subway scrable game just to get a letter K that was all I needed but I never did get one, and I think it is over with. Can't afford one but that is on my Want list. Thank you for stoping by my blog and the encouragment and inspiration you have given me. You are doing great keep it up and those goals will be right around the corner.

  11. I like your goals. i keep my calories right at 1600. I burn about 500 a day when I go to the gym. I like how you keep your goals in an attainable and healthy range. I love to see that. I know that someone has really thought it through. rooting for you from colorado. Thanks for the kind comment on my post too.

  12. Woohoo! I love seeing that downward slope of your weight! You're right...you CAN do this!

  13. Glad the appointment went well - getting a good dr is half the battle, I feel.

    Yep, that is a totally doable goal - go for it!

  14. ruling out Alzheimers is a big step and one in a great direction!
