Day 160 My Shoulders Are Square

New "I just noticed" NSV. I have square shoulders! I guess I was just so fat before that they were round, but now, nope, square! I saw it today when I was working out with my shirt off. Got right angles there.

I have a weird thing going on. If I wear my contacts, I am geting wonky vision. I can't explain it fully, but I get like light flares in my vision, it is out of focus, except the very center of my field of vision. I only get it when I wear my contacts though. My glasses are ok. I wonder, is it possible my vision has gotten better as I lost weight? I mean my glasses are still a prescription from quite some time ago, my contacts I got last year about this time. I wonder if my contacts are just too powerful and messing with my vision. I dunno, but it is frustrating. I am going to have my eyes checked again at the beginning of the year and see if I need a new prescription maybe.

I have been exceptional with my eating this week. I did do one thing though. I have been doing 1500 calories a day for awhile now, but I have been getting what I am pretty sure is low blood sugar symptoms. I think I have been over exercising for my calorie count, so I have upped it to 1800 a day again. It is a calculated risk this late in the game in my 210 before the end of 2010 challenge, but I had to try it. I am tired of being scared of crashing if my sugar got too low for me to recover.

Lauren is baking Christmas cookies all by her lonesome! I am pretty impressed. I even took a small one and ate it so I could encourage her cooking skills. Sure is cool to see her growing up, but sure wish she would stop!

  1. Nice on the shoulders! It's interesting to see your body change gradually.

    Hope she has many to give the cookies to this year! I'll be glad when cookie season is over with the food blogs. That's all I'm seeing is cookies, cookies, cookies!

  2. Congratulations -- that's awesome about the shoulders! What a great NSV!!!

    I think it's entirely possible that your vision has gotten better :)

    (Debbi, I'm looking forward to cookie season being over, as well...)

  3. I have never heard of a correlation between weight loss and better eye vision but I do know eye vision can improver- it happened to my older daughter when she was in her 20s. I had some eye flashes last summer and went to the opthalmologist who after examination told me it was an aging eye LOl- vitreous gel was just coming loose but no biggie.

  5. Are you on medicine for blood sugar? If so maybe it's time to adjust it. Are you checking your blood sugar? If not, see your doctor. Make sure those symptoms are really due to low BS.

  6. Congrats, Shane. And yes to what Dr. said. If you're on meds, they need to be adjusted. If you're not, you need to be tested. Merry Christmas! Cookies here, too.
