For 40 days I ate a vegetarian (almost vegan) diet and felt great – the daily fatigue was gone and I lost 12 pounds. I had no sweets during this time either. I discovered new vegetables – kale, artichoke, and how to use them to make some tasty dishes. Now if I can just muster up enough self-discipline to lose the last 30 pounds. How do people do it?
The bills are starting to come in for the last round of tests I had done in late December. Insurance now pays 90% after the $4k deductible is met. But I am sooooo grateful to have insurance and a Health Savings Account; so many people don’t have that luxury.
My meds are unchanged and I will see my cardiologist again in May. My hope is to have lost the rest of this weight so I can surprise him. He would be thrilled.
My daughter and best friend are doing the Mini-Heart Walk with me this year. It is on my birthday; so what better way to celebrate. We will also dance on Fountain Square the night before, just like last year (OK, I admit it was just me and a drunk guy dancing). So watch for another exciting (uh, hilarious) video!
Here’s to YOUR health,
Here's my best friend - today is her BIRTHDAY!
