I am who I am because of the experiences and influences that have shaped my life. Take me as I am or just leave me the heck alone!
That's my new motto.
Went to the Dr yesterday for my daughter, who is Anemic now. Got my blood pressure checked while I was in there and was told I was in a dangerous range for a stroke. It was 162/117. So, if I wasn't convinced I need to make a change, I am more so now.
I did fairly good yesterday. Started new medicine for the BP. Managed to stay in a normal range of calories. I entered in what I ate, but I kinda changed the recipe a little for myself to cut down on the sodium, so the totals for dinner are probably higher than what I had.
I was just too tired to change anything. This was an intentional decision that falls in my favor and doesn't count against me.
I feel myself starting to gain momentum. I'm no where near where I was in 2006 when I really kicked my own butt on losing weight. But it's a one step at a time process and I'm making those first, very difficult, steps in the right direction.
I gotta go for now. I wish you all success today.
