Went to the doctor today. I hadn't done any blood work (which will be done within the next two weeks) but I brought my body and its wreckage anyway.
I weigh more than I ever have before. Which is weird because my stomach is such a mess, it's hard to believe anything stays in there long enough to absorb any calories or nutrients or much of anything else. We're trying some different drugs this time so something might help.
And my blood pressure is up. 142/90. Even after sitting quietly for 15 minutes it was still the same. Yup - my meds have been upped again.
It's a little discouraging and depressing to find myself in this situation again. My goal is to get off the medications but to do that I've got to get this weight off. And I've been strugging with this for a decade now. I'm sure peri-menopause isn't helping matter much either.
But here I go again - embarking on a healthier lifestyle with more motion, less fat and now no dairy or sugar either. It's not a New Year's resolution per se, but a lifetime one.
