So for an update, I went to Dr. Wacks last week and weighed in and he told me I now weigh less than him. He added he doesnt think he can like me anymore, oops. My weigh in was 262lbs which was sixtyeight pounds since I started this diet about seven months ago. The weight is falling off a bit slower now but still inching down here and there. Dr. Wacks said one pound per week now is great and two would be excellent, but still being an addict and wanting instant gratification I still want ten pounds per week. guess we dont always get what we want. He also checked my bloodpressure and told me to throw away the meds I have been taking for hypertension. it was 80/55 and my heart rate was 50, now I am right at 120/75 with no meds. I had no idea how much the weight was hurting me in the now. I knew if I didnt lose weight it would kill me early but early was coming faster than I expected. Now I can walk without gasping for air and do all the things normal people do. I made a promise to myself when this started, lose 100 pounds then quit smoking, who knew I could do that. It was kind of an excuse to not quit smoking but I guess I might have to do that too.
Well thats it for now, gotta get back to work. I hope you will join me for some cruising blog fun.
Heres hoping all your faces have smiles
