Had a relaxing evening and DH gave me a hot stone massage, it is really nice. Then the dogs barked all night but still feel relaxed! Off to the bookmobile and post office. Talked to the acupuncturist, and for me a healthy BMI is under 145 and I would call it good there! I can lose when I get above 152-153 then I plateau. Anyhow I asked the acupuncturist about it and he said there were herbs that would help but he would not give them to me as he is worried about my heart, and my coronary artery, he thinks it is genetic and he cannot understand why I don't have high blood pressure, my mom can't either as hers is off the charts. I do believe him on the heart though because of my family history and I was getting really breathless and having palpitations for a while which I thought was due to anemia. So anyhow no magic herbs for me and best be safe and just go back to the drawing board, he suggested zero carbs and animal protein but I think my blood pressure is not high as I eat low animal protein and no red meat in 35 years so it is not going to happen. I am going to cut my calories and decrease the carbs again and get back on track seriously Monday. I wish I had a personal trailer or someone to cook my meals lol!!
