I lost just 1 lb this week…. mehhh. Let me say that again…. “I lost 1 lb this week”…… YIPPEE! Every lb lost IS a triumph..
I guess it’s a little disappointing that I’m not going to reach my target of losing 100 lbs in 1 year BUT this is a social/culinary experiment with no calorie restriction but rather a lifestyle change and even if on my final weigh-in day (October 1), I am 15 lbs short of my goal I HAVE to be pleased, really pleased, and I will be.
This morning I had my blood pressure done. OK I had been flitting about before hand so it wasn’t an ‘at rest’ reading but a big smile etched itself on my face when it came back at 130/75 and my pulse 55. Perfectly normal and my pulse nice and low. My heart is no longer struggling. Seeing as I am still 70-80 lbs overweight, this is
simply wonderful. I remember a year ago the readings were 176/88 and my pulse at rest raced at 85.
I AM healing myself. I’m gonna be around for my kids… 🙂
