September Goal Met!

Monday, September 14, 2009

My September 30th goal is met ahead of schedule. Weigh-in this morning @ 210.0 pounds. I've lost 62 pounds since May 25th, 8 inches in my waist, and feel great. An even bigger achievement was realized Saturday when I stopped by my local pharmacy to have my blood pressure checked and registered 116 systolic, 64 diastolic with a 62 pulse rate. Quite a change from my high hypertension readings around 140/92 back in May. Perhaps, my physician will cut back my blood pressure medication dosage when I visit him again in December.
With this goal met, I'm resetting my target today. My new target will be 200 pounds by October 31st. My challenge is to lose 10 pounds before Halloween and yes, I am registered in the SparkPeople team challenge.
Another major achievement for me, which has brought tremendous pleasure, is shooting my lowest golf score of the year at yesterday's club outing. I recorded a 76 (no mulligan) and lowered my handicap to 7.8. I'll be posting my results on The Guy's Lounge later this morning.
I owe a lot to and all the friends that I have met along the way. My weight loss, improved fitness level, and healthy lifestyle is a direct result from the support and advice received at SparkPeople.

    You are doing so great. Keep up the good work. It is people like you that inspire people like me who are also trying to loose these unwanted pounds. It's a struggle but together we can do it. Kitty

    Excellent! That's awesome! Congrats! I'm hoping my blood pressure and cholesterol readings are improved when I go back to the doc after Thanksgiving.

Continued success in reaching your next goal!!
