Pounds lost this week: +3.5

Total pounds lost: 13

Last Thursday when I met with Bryan I was pleasantly surprised that I had lost a half pound. Always happy when the scale continues down no matter how small. I have a long way to go for my long term goal, but I am happy with my progress.

I think being part of the challenge has been very helpful in meeting my short term goals.

Friday and Saturday I did not make it to the gym, those two days went fast. Not sure what kept me from going Friday, but Saturday we had a chili cook off at our church. My brother Joe entered chili, he did not win but his chili was great. I had five or six small bowls of chili, was planning to try all 12 that were entered, but the three cinnamon rolls filled me up.

A great time with family and friends, won an herb garden in the raffle so I am going to try my hand at growing some herbs.

Monday I met with Bryan and when I got home my dad, Joe, and I cleaned our front yard of leaves and sticks. We had a pick up load from my dad's yard and my grandparents. The leave raking was quite a workout.

Tuesday took the leaves to the recycling center, then in the afternoon went for a ride on my bike with Henry and Jim, always a good way to end the day.

On Wednesday (March 27th), I started the day with going to the gym with my dad and then to my diabetic check at the doctor. Then my dad and I rode our bikes to Concordia, Kansas. We had ordered a tire for my bike and it was in.

We had lunch at a local restaurant that was recommended to us by California Phil, I had a buffalo chicken wrap. With getting my tire today I was unable to meet with Bryan.

The ride was a good one but I rode in the strongest wind I had experienced. When we got home I got a call from my doctor, When I joined Anytime Fitness my A1C was 9.9, one of the main reasons I joined is my doctor said she thought with diet and exercise I could perhaps control my diabetes with diet.

Today my A1C was 5.8. Hallelujah, amen!

I could not have attained this goal with out the help and encouragement of Bryan, family and friends. Even people in the community have been so supportive, always asking how I am doing, it's much appreciated. This has certainly gave me the boost I needed to keep trying,
