Thirty-one pounds down this morning and I already feel so much better. Yes I'm still listed as obese on the BMI scale, but at least my breathing is better and I don't wake during the night from fear of chocking from my large neck. I don't get out of breath from simple tasks and my energy has increased. Not to mention that my blood pressure (yes, I take the pill each morning) has gone down and staying down. My cholesterol and triglycerides are in great shape. In two weeks, I'm doing a stress test to get a baseline on my heart just to make sure Dad hasn't passed some things to me through my genes, but if he did - I'm making choices that he did not make so that I can stick around for a while. (Thanks, Dad for teaching me lessons from Heaven!)
And oh yes, I may have to change the title of this blog - but if so: it'll well be worth it.
