Went for my semi-annual visit to my heart doc. I had lost some more weight. I asked him to check back a year ago and let me know how much weight I'd had lost since then. As of today, I have lost 46.2 pounds. He has lowered my BP medicine, taken me off of the cholesterol medicine, and, hopefully, by the next visit, I will no longer need my CPAP machine. I has been a slow process, I know. But I have to give credit to SP for helping me through the hurdles over the past year. Thanks everyone!
