Wow! It’s been awhile. So I have learned that I pretty much suck at blogging and kinda suck at dieting. It’s been such a slow process. I thought I would be down a lot more than what I currently am. I weighed myself this morning and it was 297.8. So on January 1st I was 320.8. I have lost a total of 23 pounds. I was really hoping I would be down 40 lbs by now. But I guess I should be happy I’m in the upper 200’s.
I have been keeping track of my food with My Fitness Pal and upped my steps to 6000 a day. Some days I get to 7000. I’m trying to increase this amount but it’s hard when my hips and feet hurt. Hoping the more I lose the easier walking to my goal number will be.
One thing that is different is I have asked my doctor to put me on a prescription diet pill. I was on it about 8 years ago and lost about 50 pounds in 5-6 months. The doctor at that time did not want me to stay on it due to it increases my blood pressure. And I already have high blood pressure. My new doctor is monitoring it carefully. I have to go in monthly for weight checks/blood pressure check. I have to keep losing to stay on it. My next appointment is April 16th.
I’m going to keep on trucking…. keep on moving forward. And trying to keep positive.
Til next time!!❣️
