Day 40

It just dawned onto me of how long I have been writing this blog.  It doesn't seem like it has been 40 days.  So with that I had to see what my progress has been for this duration and I am happy that I am down 10 pounds.  It probably could be more but I know I have many obstacles to overcome.  I just need to stay focused and keep pushing forward.  I have been listening to my Cd's in regards about weight loss and keeping your mind focused and clear.  It has been helping.  I also am trying to keep my journal up to date on My Fitness Pal.  I have been seeing a pattern that I am trying to break and that is the weekends.  I also have seen small changes too in my so call life style.  We have more fruit in the house, trying very hard not to bring any junk in, well I know I am not bringing any junk in but hubby does from time to time.  He too is doing better. 

Oh and yesterday I had to go to the doctors for a check up again on my blood pressure.  Seems that the previous times that I had seen him my pressure was elevated.  We thought maybe due to the pain that I was experiencing from my knee.  Now that I have had two cortisone shots which has help greatly, well I thought for sure that my pressure would have come down but no.  So as of today I am taking medications to see if that would lower it.  Doctor was also pleased with my weight loss but also disappointed with the pressure.  With this news this is even more of an incentive to lose more weight.  I just need to stay even more focus on me.  It is true what another blogger has said.  If the doctor tells you that if you don't change you could die, what would you do.  He actually said it in different terms but still the thought still holds true.  I really need to kick this up several steps and get this weight off.

Must stay on target.........

Until later...............

  1. With blood pressure exercise is the best thing you can do for yourself so maybe try to start fitting in some short walks if you aren't already. I know for Mike his blood pressure has come down a lot since he started walking on a regular basis and has gotten to cut down his meds by a 1/3. Great news on the 10 lbs though that is a great accomplishment in 40 days. I know when I started I averaged about that amount too. Just keep plugging along and you'll get to where you want to be :)
