Happy Wednesday! Happy Day Before Thanksgiving!
So . . . how is your weight loss progressing? Have you figured out your plan for the holiday?
Well, I'm brimming with good news . . . but that will wait for a minute until I tell you that last week I had a physical. It had been three years since I had seen my general practitioner and now that I'm 50, I decided that I needed to have some baseline blood work.
My blood pressure went from 130/84, before I joined Weight Watchers in June, to 124/72. It isn't the best that it has ever been, but it's dropping which is what I wanted to see. A few days later I received a letter from my doctor. He didn't share my lab results with me, except for the lipid panel. Suffice it to say that I'm NORMAL!! YAY!!
So, what's my good news?
Though I thought I was sabotaging myself, I still did enough good things to make a negative number. This last week, I lost 1.6 lbs. . .
for a total weight loss of 35.0 pounds!!
I still have around 15 pounds to lose, but I'm happy dancing with my progress!
