Awesome Appointment

Friday, April 26, 2013

Well, I went to the neurologist and the appointment should have been bad because of my recent seizure but it was great! The nurse took my blood pressure and it was 122/69, the best it's been in quite some time. The reason I started this weight loss journey was because my lifetime blood pressure was very low and in the past year or so it started creeping up to hypertension levels. Instead of meds I wanted my body to fix itself and I have been trying everything I can to get it back down. I am moving more, losing weight, eating well, sleeping better. I still get a rushing heart sometime but not like I used to. I feel like I am giving myself the best medicine I can, a healthy way of living, and the numbers reflect that my efforts are paying off. Awesome! This information was much more rewarding than my weight loss because it is literally saving my life. Also, being part of SP is so rewarding because so many people are on the same journey of improving their health and vitality, and what a great journey it is!

    It's a great feeling to know you can do something "good" for your body instead of mistreating it the way most people do. And it Is starting to reward you for all of your efforts.

Way to Go!
