I’m so tickled. I’ve lost 50 pounds total. I did some shopping and was thrilled to see that I was out of plus size clothes. I still have 20 pounds to lose, so I only picked up a couple of items. I had no summer clothes that would fit, and I didn’t want to buy a lot of clothes that would be too big for me in a few months. When I am down to the weight I want to be, I will post before and after pictures.
Now, for the not so good news. I got my new cholesterol numbers. I did improve, but not enough. My doctor went up on the mg for my medicine. I’m a little worried about that. It’s up to 80mg. I’m worried about side effects. At my next appointment, she said that they will check several things when they take my blood, diabetes, liver and kidney functions.
I have been really careful about what I eat. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people that has a bad family history of high cholesterol. At least my numbers did show an improvement. My good numbers went up, and my bad numbers went down.
I’m healthier than I have been in a long time. I haven’t been down to this weight in years. I don’t cringe when I look in a mirror. I have more energy. I am a lot more active. I am looking forward to buying a new bathing suit in a couple of months. I’ll keep you up to date on my progress.
