1. I got a new scale... and according to my calculations... I showed a 20 lb. loss last Wednesday!
2. To date, I've stayed "on plan" every day for 5 weeks!
3. I have an automatic wrist blood pressure monitor similar toTHIS ONE... and I took my blood pressure a few times last week. Each time I took it, the reading wasfan-freaking-tastic! It also measures heart rate, and that was excellent, too! Woo hoo! I am just so happy that in spite of my lifelong struggle with obesity that I have always been healthy and have never had high blood pressure or any of the other medical problems that seem to plague those who are overweight.
4. Overall, things are going well. I'm eating around 1,800-2,000 calories per day, and I'm exercising several days each week. I've resolved that this is how I must live the rest of my life, and I'm at peace with that. The weight WILL come off... and I'm learning that patience...along with perseverance... is the key.
Tomorrow is my weigh-in day, so be sure to pop on over to see how I did! I hope you have a great week... and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
