Big milestone!!!!

Big milestone!!!!

I finally bought some shorts today!!! I haven't worn shorts in five years but now I love myself whatever weight I am, so I thought I was in for a treat. They are not size four, but none the less, they look pretty good. I live in Texas where it's over 100 degrees every day, so you can imagine being fat and in jeans was horrible. Thank you everyone for the support that keeps me going. I have 30 lbs to go but I know I will do it this time. 😁

Thank you. The legs are a bit spindley compared to my middle. So putting something just around the bigger parts seemed to highlight the problem. But I do feel better now. Thanks for the compliment.

Legs photo looks great! Well done for thinking enough about yourself and your comfort in that obscene heat (have gone all faint just thinking about it.......) that you can make the right choice for yourself. Attagirl!!! 💐💐

I feel for you! Doing dance my instructor couldn't stand that when I was suppsed to just wear a leotard or a leotard and shorts I'd have a pair of leggings or joggies on. And the first day I wore shorts I just felt so good about myself 😊

Well done! And keep up the great work ❤️

Just an update. I always have white coats syndrome when i go to the doctors, that make my Blood pressure rocket. I refuse to have medication, because i have a B/P monitor at home, and when i check my B/P it is normal.

My nurse decided to let me have that 24 B/P monitor to see whats happening. I had it fitted Thursday 10th Aug, and taken off 11th Aug, and they were pleasantly surprise to know, my b/p is not really high Thank Goodness for that. Will have to lose a bit more weight to bring it down.

You can do it! I'm glad you won't need the meds. Mine is borderline right now, so I have to watch. MH

Oh yes, we all can do it. I have had many chances being borderline, but thank goodness, i am quiet a health conscious person. I have been given another chance, and i am going to grasp it with both hands. I was so happy with the results, i had forgotten to book an appointment to discus results same time with my nurse. I have booked the appointment on line 10mins ago on the patient access app. I am determine, and i will get there. Thanks for words of encouragement.
