it's been awhile

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

It's been a while since my last blog. Here is a 10 month update:

Not much progress in the weight department, I'm only down 5 pounds.
Still on my daily dose of Cholesterol and blood pressure medicine
I'm experiencing what my Physician seems to think is Bursitis/left side and hip. I don't want to take anymore medications but I have to for 1 month then follow up with her to see if things improves.

My home life has changed
My daughter had a baby boy one month ago this is her second child, she has another son a 7 year old
I got married this past February


My brother is back in the hospital, after having quadruple bypass surgery and then a blood clot in his aorta. He's listed in critical condition so I'm hoping and praying for him constantly. Please get better Big brother Ed

This makes me want to get healthy even more, I've been losing family members and friends at such a young age and this really scares me. A friend of mines, husband just passed away on Saturday, I didn't even know he had heart problems. (He was 49)
I loss my dad almost 40 years ago, to a massive heart attack he was 45. I loss my mom almost 30 years ago at the age of 49.Were not sure what she succumbed to, so I'm very nervous about my heath and that of my family.

I am seriously going to take action to lose this weight, I'm going to start walking more, riding my husband's bike, getting my husband involved as well, increasing my water intake and eating more fruits and vegetables.Yes my weight is down 5 pounds, I'll take it but I want to be down at least 5 to 6 pounds more when I go back for my follow up appointment the end of June. That way I know i'll be on the right track with this weight loss battle and improving my health.
