I guess I was getting very discouraged that despite the added exercise, there has been no change in my weight. I didn't get on the elliptical once all week and bought a full sized bag of corn chips and finished them off in two days.
I had an appointment with my nurse practitioner on Tuesday. I had had my blood drawn on Friday. My overall cholesterol was 229 -- and this is being on meds. My LDL was 110 and my HDL was 108. Now.... anything over 60 on the HDL is great.... she said I was an overachiever on the HDL! So, my prescription for my cholesterol medicine is going from 10 mg to 5 mg. She also has put me on high blood pressure meds. The last two appointments my readings were in the range of 140/80. So, I started that med this morning. It's supposed to make me pee more often -- maybe there'll be some water weight loss as a result.
So, I am finished with my two weeks of medical appointments--- other than having a mammogram next week, I should be free and clear until May.
I've got to get back on track with the exercising and being more diligent about watching what I eat. I know I do!
