Weekly Weigh-in Biweekly Update

    In January of 2017 I saw my doctor in California for a routine physical. I knew my weight was high but I didn't realize until that day that I was 204.  I had never weighed that much.  I had been on blood pressure meds since 2014 but they didn't seem to be helping.  I certainly wasn't taking enough responsibility for things I could do to manage my blood pressure and other out of balance aspects of my health.  Based on my blood work my doctor wanted to add "pre-diabetic" meds to my BP meds.  Adding new meds was not a step I was willing to take.

    Based on all of this new information from my doctor I did start to take my health and weight seriously again.  When I had my appendix out in September of 2018 all of my blood panel numbers were in normal ranges, my blood pressure was normal and healthy, and I stopped the blood pressure meds.  My weight was down over 40 pounds from 204 in 2017 and I maintained the low to mid 160's until the pandemic months arrived.

    I was really looking forward to today's weigh-in as I felt I made some good progress.  I was disappointed with last weeks (August 30) number as I want to drop at least 2 pounds a week.  At today's number of 181, however, I lost 3 pounds in this past week.  For next week a sub-180 number is on the radar.  I think a 170 handle will ensure an on time post next week.
