Who has high blood pressure? This girl!

Yes, now I officially have a medical reason to lose weight. I know, I know. Technically, I've always had that reason, but since my last post sooooo long ago (or maybe around the time of my last post), my Dad has suffered numerous heart attacks, been declared disabled, and I have had my heart checked out. While my heart overall looks fine, I do have some thickening of the wall on the left side which is caused by high blood pressure.

Apparently, I've had high blood pressure for awhile now and not known it. Doctors orders: blood pressure medicine, lose weight, and eat healthy. Yes, I've know those last two for many years now. I mean, my baby is 3 and half years old. I weight about 10 lbs more than when I brought The Boy home from the hospital. So, yeah. Lose weight, eat healthy? Nothing new there.

The high blood pressure scares me. So, I am doing it this time (how many times have I said that?!?). Not doing it is no longer an option. Who's with me!?!?!?!

My dear dear beautiful Loser girl. those of us who struggle with un wanted pounds all know how you feel right now.. One thing is true, you will never lose it untill you want to. No wedding, no vacation, nothing will move you to lose wieght more than your own resolve.. Good luck, we are behind you all the way! :) Hugs

So is losergirl supposed to be because we are losing weight or because we're a loser and can't lose weight OR because it could go either way and covers both basis? Just trying to get it all clear here. Do it girl. Just do it. I'm with you on doing it...I'm just not with you on physically doing it. But you knew that. :)

Very true, Anonymous. It's not going to happen until I decide to do it.

April, if you were to lose weight...well, don't! lol. The name? It's original intent was because I was losing weight. Then it turned into me being a Loser for not losing the weight. Now, I'm back to the original intent. I am. I mean it.

And to note I would never call you a loser, just trying to figure out if that's where you were going with that or not. Hopefully you knew that. :)

I knew, but the name fits either way. I need to update the blog, but don't feel bloggy right now. I've lost a little weight!!
