Two in one day?

I finally got a family doctor and it turns out I have high blood pressure, a possible heart murmur and maybe a bad thyroid.

I have to go for blood work next month and monitor my bp. Imagine what it would have been if I hadn't lost those 72 pounds. It really is unbelievable.

I have been overweight and dieting for years and while I've been on a roll since January I am really tired sometimes.

Don't get me wrong. I really enjoy working out now. I do the precor and treadmill, the machines, classes, etc. I try to increase my levels and speeds once a week or so and now I am working out harder than most of the "skinny" people at my gym.

The thing that bothers me is the food situation. I pretty much have to follow a diet right to the letter, and exercise a ton to drop the weight. My dream is to be able to follow something all week and eat what I want (within reason) on the weekends. Wouldn't that be lovely?

Maybe once my thyroid results come in and the wedding is over things with settle down a bit and I won't feel so jumpy-

We leave a week from today and I am beyond excited.


Hi Anyone and Everyone.
For those of you who were kind enough to email and message me-thanks so much. I'm so sorry I've been a total flake.
I can't even remember when I last posted but here is an update on me. Starting in November I went and got my dress, ate badly until January 4th-got on the scale and had gotten back up to 223pds, starting exercising at the gym, eating good and yesterday I weighed in at 196pds.
I leave in exactly one week for the wedding and get married on April 2nd. Though I'm not at goal I am really excited about what I was able to do. In total from when I got engaged I have lost 72 pds.
Hope all is well with my peeps and I seriously plan to get into this again when the excitement dies down.
