Remain Focused

Monday, February 10, 2014

I really am getting frustrated with myself:(( Instead of losing weight I am gaining it. To be honest I have not been focusing on my journey. I have really let things go. I was working at a job that was not helping out at all. The environment was very Negative and the stress level was so high I could not stand it any more. So I made the choice to leave (after four years). Now I have the time to get back on track. My goal is to lose enough weight and get healthy so when I go back to my doctor in five months I will no longer be on BP meds. Now the ball is in my court, I am responsible for my own actions. emoticon

  


High Blood Pressure

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Where to begin, I was told on Monday that I have hypertension and put on meds. I had blood work done back in May everything came back normal. For the past month or so I have not been feeling like myself (headaches, tired all the time, and sometimes nausea) it really got bad last week. So I went in to see my Dr. my BP was 172/98 and yes I have come to realize that being over weight plays a big part and I need to change that . Yes I have been making changes to my diet like stopped drinking soda, cut back on my sweets. Started to cook my own meals instead of the process crap. Also learning to read the labels. But no changes in the way I felt. So the reason why I am writing this is because you really need to listen to your body. It does have a lot to say. And now the wellness Journey begins emoticon

    You are so right in saying that we should listen to our body - it does tell us through our emotions and energy levels as to how beneficial a food item is or not!! Good luck on your journey... I too just recently started (seriously)
