Taking care of myself

Saturday, May 11, 2013

So today I went to the Dr. because a few days back I took my blood pressure and it was UP again well into the bad range. It has been climbing steadily along with my weight. She put me back on Lisinopril. Hopefully I will be able to get off the meds once I lose a decent amount of weight like I did 2 years ago. Another good motivator for me to do something about my weight.

I feel a little better knowing I took a step to take care of myself. emoticon

    emoticon Don';t we all have to take care of ourselves. I did that for a whole week, carefully followed The 17 Day Diet, lost 4 lbs, but noticed dh wasn't eating right at all, so I gave it up to take care of him. Bad excuse, I know and I think I am putting it down just to give myself a kick in the right direction..
    Continued success on your journey. Be gld you have a doct, where I moved in the maritimes, there are no docs taking new patients, and I am up in the air about how to take care of my diabetes... We need to do this for ourselves!!!!

    My favorite potassium supplement for reducing blood pressure is blackstrap molasses in my morning oatmeal. Yum!

    Good job taking care of yourself! I'm watching blood pressure, too - guess lots of us are, and that's a good thing.

    Have a great Sunday tomorrow!
