Went to the doctor today and had a positive appointment. Weight continues down. It was down 14 pounds since the last visit. The pace it is dropping won’t impress anyone, but it continues to go down, so I’ll take it with no apologies for that.
One good thing that came out of the appointment was that my blood pressure medication dose was cut in half. Amazingly, this is the second time since I started the diet it was cut in half. Another way to state that is that I am now taking 25% of the dose I was taking before I started losing weight.
I had set goals for the second half of year 2 and one of those goals was a reduction in blood pressure medicine dose, and I can now check that off the list. My completion date for the goals is December 9th, which is the 2 year anniversary of the start of my healthy ways. This is the first goal officially completed. As a side note, I have been “hard at work” on riding all the roller coasters at Busch Gardens and all the slides at Adventure Island, and that goal could be completed in a week or two. I now am 100% confident that I fit in every single one of them, and it is just checking them all off the list.
