Ten In Eleven

I know, I know... it's been a long time since I did a serious blog entry. Well - what can I say? I've been a little busy!

But - I had some news I wanted to share.

A few weeks ago I got the results of a blood draw from my doc. It reported that my cholesterol was pretty high, which put me at a greater risk for heart disease. So I immediately made some changes - whole grains and fruit for breakfast (oatmeal with an apple chopped up in it), I ordered a fiber supplement and some other heart healthy supplements from Melaleuca and began taking those as soon as they showed up.

My doc also called in a prescription for me to help get rid of some of the extra "fluff" as well. It suppresses the appetite and revs the metabolism. I began taking it 11 days ago.

I started hitting the gym again (four or five days a week) and have really been paying attention to the portion control. I think the MOST effective thing I've been doing is PRAYING about the cravings and "bad" foods. I can really tell a difference in this area.

As of today I'm down 3 3/4 inches and 10 pounds! I had to weigh myself three times on two different scales... I just couldn't believe it!

Now - this isn't going to be a dramatic change if you look... seems that somehow I've acquired an additional 16 pounds since January... (I have since broken off my previous relationship with Ben and Jerry...) but every little bit counts!

So I'm off to a good start. 10 down - 91 to go! I'll occasionally update on my progress.
