Weigh-In Day

I have actually got on the elliptical twice this week.  Ten minutes each time, increasing my speed the second time.  I have also really watched what I ate this week.  No eating junk food or fast food.  It really paid off because I lost five pounds this week.  So since I went on blood pressure medicine I have lost fifteen pounds.  But to me the most exciting thing that happened this week is my middle number changed.  To a number I haven't seen in a while.  I'm embarrassed at how much I actually weighed when I went to the Doctor.  My immediate family didn't even have no idea.  I asked Megan yesterday and she guessed way low.  But I think she was just trying to be nice.  When I told Makayla last night how much I lost this week she asked me if I could be a certain weight by the summer.  I told her maybe not but possibly close.  I don't want to lose it fast, because my experience has been the slower you lose it the more likely it's not coming back. 
I didn't get this way over night and it's not going to go away overnight.  But it is and will continually to go away.  It has really clicked this time.  I don't want to be on blood pressure medicine or any medicine as for that.  My Mom's side of the family has all lived to be at least 90, some even 100.  So if there's something I can do to live a long healthy life, I want to do it.  I want to be here to see my grand kids grow up, and to be there for the birth of any others that may come along.
