Keeping My Head Above Water
Wednesday, February 05, 2020
First let me admit that I've been wishy-washy when it has come to my weight. Often times going from focused and driven, to lax and semi caring, and finally trying to convince myself I'm fine where I am. I've been in this constant loop for years!!
Fast forward to recent events... having lightheadedness, feeling my pulse racing in my fingertips, and experiencing elevated blood pressure that was consistent for days, I broke down and listened to my body. Off to the doctor I went and blood pressure meds were prescribed. Thankfully that took care of all the symptoms but on the side of caution an EKG was performed.
When you are confronted with the possibility of something being wrong with your heart, everything starts to come into focus. Well, this EKG compared to one I had years ago was different and the next step was an Eco. God bless the technician I had that day!! Thankfully my results showed nothing significant in structure or heart disease.
If anything, I've found my motivation. A fire has been lit and the message received loud and clear. It's onward and upward (or should I say downward in terms of weight) from here.
