I’ve started an actual DR based weight loss plan- monthly DR visits- bloodwork and all that non-sense.
Based on my tests; I have high blood pressure and my cholesterol is a little high but I’m in almost perfect health- which not only surprise me but blew the mind of my DR. You could literally see it behind her mask when I asked “how is that possible”…she responded “I have no clue…”.
My dad has heart issues including several heart attacks.
My DR can only guess that I have great genes and that my parents medical issues were causes/worsened by other factors like both being smokers for so long.
I got some blood pressure medicine, some additional allergy medicine and the all clear to start exercising- even based on the high blood pressure.
It seems like I’m always “restarting” constantly but this seems like the perfect place- I restarted last Monday when I got my blood work and last week wasn’t great but I did make better choices and started doing things to let to weight loss.
Since this is a 12-month, DR supervised program- I guess I have until my 46th birthday to see what I can do and now have accountability.
As I’ve always said though- losing the weight isn’t an issue for me- it’s keeping it off.
I’m telling you now that I will drop between 100-150 lbs by my 46th birthday- no problem. The problem starts a year from now- when I lose that DR supervised program and accountability and start that slow grind back to gaining it all back.
This also includes some mental stuff so hopefully I can use the next year to get that aspect fixed- before it happens.
Kicking off week 2…I’ve got until April 6th to show what I can do.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
