Heart Health

Friday, October 07, 2011

My blood pressure has been 120/90 fairly consistently for the last couple of years. This always put me into a pre hypertension range. Not even thirty, and was well on my way to hypertension. Scary stuff, especially considering that I do not know any family history.

.I finally asked the school nurse to take my blood pressure today. 115/68. 115/68! Back in the healthy range.... low healthy to be exact!

One more thing to smile about this week :)

88.1 - What does it mean to me?

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Weigh in day today. Stepped on the scale. 88.1 (my scale measures in kg). It's another loss this week. But a loss with something more. 88.1 means that I now weight 193.8 lbs. That means that I am at my lowest weight ever as an adult.

So 88.1, what does it mean to me? It means that I am feeling very proud right now.

Focused Much?

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Tuesday is weight in day for me. I was down again this week. Not by much, but hey, a loss is a loss, right?

I started my weight loss journey almost a year ago. I was close to my all time high of 210lbs, weighing in at 207. I set 10% of my body weight as a first goal. I have been watching my calories and fat intake. I have also been going to the fitness club on a regular basis.

What is so wrong with that? Nothing. Nothing at all. I realized something as I was laying in bed last night. I have been so focused on my first BIG goal, that I have neglected to celebrate the little milestones that happen along the way.

I weighed in at 195.1 lbs on Tuesday. That means I have lost 11.9 lbs. How did I not have a mini celebration for myself when I had lost 10?

The celebration will be on Saturday. I haven't decided if it is a massage or a hair cut and colour.... but it will be in honour of losing my first 10!

Good for you for celebrating the little losses! And also celebrate that you are in One-derland - in the 100's!

Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to us all!
