diagnosis: high cholesterol
clinical goal: intake of less than 200mg cholesterol per day to reduce bad cholesterol by 10/20/11
personal goal: drop 20 lbs by 10/20/11
I am still using MyPlate to help me track everything that's going into my mouth. I haven't been quite as diligent about tracking everything...but I'm trying to keep up with it!
results (as of 10/5/11):
actual weight lost/gained this week: LOST 0.6 LBS
* * *
actual weight lost/gained since 7/20/11: a total of 18.15 lbs LOST!!
* * *
accountability on cholesterol intake: I am still very successfully keeping my intake under 200mg per day; for the most part, I am keeping it under 100mg each day!

I have to admit that I am very pleased that I lost even 0.6 lbs this week. I have not been exercising like I should. I haven't been tracking all my food intake on MyPlate like I should. Why? Because I'm embarrassed to keep a record of the days where I blow it! Isn't that ridiculous? It's a personal accounting of my food intake and I'm embarrassed to see for myself how the graphs will look!
Slowly but surely, I am inching towards that 20 lb weight loss goal. 1.85 lbs to go! Hopefully I can do that very soon. I only have 15 more days til I have my bloodwork re-done! Wish me luck!!
