Woo, hoo! I have been quite worried over the last year or so as my blood pressure and cholesterol have been 'raised'.
I went for my 'MOT' tests in December, and got the results this week. My cholesterol and Blood Sugar are 'acceptable' and my Blood Pressure is Normal.
So, I stopped taking the blood pressure tabs - only a small dose, anyway, but felt I needed to just check this out with the doc.
I spoke to her this morning, on a telephone consultation, and though I need to have the BP checked another two times before a conclusive diagnosis can be made - I can stay off them!
And, furthermore, by losing weight, being a non-smoker and a t-totaller, I have reduced my chances of a heart attack within the next few years, down from 1 > 5 to 1 > 20!
How bloody wonderful is that, eh?!
So, I lost 2 lbs last week at the old weight watchers new Pro Points plan, and it seems to be working. I shall find out tonight if anymore has gone. But, judging by the way I have been pee-ing for Scotland this week, it looks likely.
Also, I have signed up at the local Live Active pool and gym, went to Aqua-fit last night; and am due to attend for Zumba on Monday - so here goes for 2011!
