12 down 38 to go

Pounds that is.

I have been using the treadmill since Weds. I am doing 2 miles a day, one mile at a time. I increase my speed a little each time, I started at 1.8 mph and just did 3 mph a few minutes ago.

I figure in a few days I try to increase my distance but I am sweating profusely and breathing hard by the last 1/4 mile.

Jason said he is very impressed with me because I am making my goals and keeping them.

I am determined to lose weight and eat healthy and be healthy.

My blood pressure has gone down too, it's no where near as high as it was a few weeks ago. I think that the UTI raised my BP also, I must have had a bladder infection for awhile. I went to that clinic in town for my respiratory illness and they didn't even check my urine. I thought that was pretty routine and my BP was high there.

I have been taking Hawthorne Berries twice a day for my BP and I go back to my doc on Weds. for a follow up.

Anyway I am working hard at this and not giving up.
