  • Quote: Diana-I've been checking blood pressure at home too. been around 121/93. Would light-headed and dizziness be indicative of low or high blood pressure?
    Hm. As someone who struggled with high blood pressure during pregnancy, that bottom number is a bit high (and that's the more important number). Norm is under 80. Anything above 90 is considered high blood pressure. I'd probably mention it to the doctor and get it checked out.
  • Quote: I have watched that clip several times. I always feel so motivated afterward. I think I need that workout. We know I don't need anything!
    I think you need it so you can report back to us and let us know how good it is. Purely for research purposes, of course.
  • Quote: Morning all you beautiful people! Positive thinking and positive outcomes everyone!! Today is a brand new day and I'm feeling WONDERFUL. Trying to get more active here, I may be at work right now shhh
    Glad you stopped by while working. Yay for feeling wonderful! I enjoy your positive posts.
  • I'm up .6 to 222.8 today.

    My new thought is the new medication I was put on. Ever since the first full day with it, the gain started. That's 4.2 pounds in roughly 5 days. No, that won't do. I did some research this morning and one of the side effects is abnormal weight loss or gain. Why couldnt I get the abnormal weight LOSS!?!?! Already got my appointment for 3 this afternoon.

    Wish me luck girls. I know it's just the meds but let me tell you, watching the number on my scale creep up like this is not an easy thing to watch! I need a hug.
  • aw, Vixsin, hugs to you. I hope the medication situation can be dealt with in a positive way.

  • Sending you a great big hug, Vixsin! My weight has been bouncing around, too. We'll get there!
  • Vixsin -

    ParadiseFalls - Good job on your 4 days! Stick with it!

    stacygee - Hope you figure out what's going on. Fingers crossed for your doctor's appointment.

    Everyone else - Keep up the good work!

    Alright ladies - I just ate my first real meal in 4 days, so...we'll see how this goes. I had rice last night for dinner, rice today for lunch - I'm all riced out . *TMI alert!* Not eating properly and no coffee since Friday have left me completely constipated . And I never have that problem . I think tomorrow morning I'll have some coffee - it usually works wonders .

    Here's my food intake from today:
    B - 2 small slices of bread, camomile tea
    L - small bowl of rice, camomile tea (so sick of it!), small Lebkuchen for dessert
    D - Steamed broccoli, pasta and chicken in cream cheese sauce

    Hoping I'll be all back to normal tomorrow, although, I'm not looking forward to my weight loss stalling, which I just KNOW will happen. I've gotten used to this accelerated drop .
  • Shells Now you're talking! Research is a good thing!

    Vixsin Good luck at the Dr visit. I hope the situation gets resolved for you. Let us know what happens.

    Paradise Hi! It's good to see you again.

    Cincimini I'm glad to hear that overall you are feeling better. NO COFFEE?????? That's awful!
  • Hi Everyone!

    This may be the last time you see me post in a little while, my Australia vacation starts tomorrow!!!!!

    Here is the plan for the day Tues 12/21/2010

    B - 1 WW whole wheat bagel with vegemite and soy cheese + homemade smoothie w/ banana, almond milk, a little strawberry flavoured agave syrup and cocoa
