How Low Can You Go

15 in 15 Challenge Week 5

>> Friday, October 29, 2010

Today I am 210.2, that is down 2.2 from last week.  This is great! I don't know why I am not as excited as I should be.  Since I have come out of the hospital I can only eat soup and yogurt, since everything else hurts my throat.  I am sure that this has to do with the loss.  Hopefully, I can eat some solid food in the next few days.  While I was in the hospital, I came to the conclusion that I never want to go back there again and I will do everything in my power to stay healthy to avoid having any procedures done.  Diabetes and high blood pressure run in my family and I would like to avoid both of those as much as possible.  Besides these last 35-40 pounds that I would like to loss, I am in pretty good health.  My blood pressure is normal and nothing else seems to be wrong.

   I should have lost 5 pounds by now, but I will take what I can get.  I cannot do any exercise for 2 weeks, but maybe later I will go for a walk.  I have already signed up for the Santa Shuffle 5K race on Dec. 4 and I want to sign up for the Resolution Run 5K on Dec. 31.  I would love to take my time below 32 minutes.  When I am better I will sign up for the 10K clinic again, since I did not get to finish the last one and accomplish my goal of running a  10k race.  This spring I want to try the 1/2 marathon clinic and hopefully run the Ottawa half in May.   I still want to try hot yoga, take up aquafitness again and get in some swimming lessons.  Novemeber begins on Monday can you believe it?

I hope that everyone is doing well, most challengers have lost some weight so I am happy about that.  Have a great day and now that I am home, you will be hearing more of me!

I am down 1.2 pounds week. 206.8 is my current weight. With every pound you lose you are reducing your risk of diabetes and high blood pressure. My grandmother died of complications of diabetes. She also had high blood pressure. I am sure once you start eating solid foods again you will feel better. Congrats on your lose!

I know I'm several days late, but I didn't lose anything this week anyway. Which I actually count as a good thing since I had a girls night out last Monday and drank and ate way too much. On to next week. :o)
