It's a new week! I am still trying to remain healthy, with a few cheats here and there, but I don't ever, ever plan to be the weight I use to be. I still have about 13 pounds to get to my 1st goal. It's been a long process but I plan to stick it out.

Any who, I want to lose weight and I want to get vacation ready!(later post) This week I decided to go meatless. This is going to be sooooo hard!  I love meat! We do a lot of chicken and turkey. Occasionally, we will have beef. I mostly do beef because I am anemic and when I was going "through"  the doctor wanted me to eat beef at least 3x a week. But now, I don't eat that much beef.  And Pork, well, every now and then I need to have me a pork chop sandwich or a chopped bbq sandwich. But trust me, those days are very far apart!

I am hoping the no meat will help take off some pounds this week. Praying!! 

Today I did very well! I did mess up and had a handful of chips and a handful of candy corn. Trying to lay off the sweets too! But I will give myself a pat on the back with not having the delicious baked chicken that I made for Sunday dinner yesterday. Plus, when I came in from work, my mother saved me two wings to go with my dinner. I said, Nope! No meat for me! She was shocked. I tried to get her to join me when I told her what I was thinking about yesterday while we were cooking but she said, Uhhh, all week? She maybe I will do two or three nights. lol  I will take that! It's a process but I am sticking to it!

Stay tuned!

Today I went back to the dr for lab work and  for her my blood pressure to be checked. Of course, the higher dosage of water pill keeps me in the bathroom. Oh Great! Believe me it is definitely working!!! Well, I began taking the pill last week when she gave me the prescription. She wanted to see if my pressure would come down from the water pill instead of increasing the blood pressure pill. 

I arrive at the dr and of course my pressure is 132/96. Huh??  Can't be... The top number decreased and the bottom number went up 2 points. I am really confused. Since I had lad work done, I am going to wait until next week to find out my results and then I can talk to her about my blood pressure. I thought maybe the medicine wasn't in my system long enough. I shall keep you posted. I had some blood work to figure out my allergies. I am trying to eliminate as much intake of medicine as possible. Hopefully, there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel!
