I'm a little disappointed that my weight is not where I wanted it to be today. However, I'm not defeated as I realize that there are a few more changes that I need to make on my part to get where I want to be.
On Monday my doctor's office called to say that my cholesterol was high (222) and that they wanted me to start taking Lipitor, 10 mg a day. I don't want to take Lipitor because of all the known side effects. Back in 2008 my cholesterol was 223 and by the time it was checked again in 2009 it was down to 209, without medication. If I did it before I know that I can do it again. I will give myself 6 months to get it down again on my own without medication. If it hasn't dropped at least 10 points by then I will consider taking the medication.
My goal hasn't changed as I'm still determined to lose 15 lbs by March 31, 2013. I just have to step my game up during February and March to reach it.
