What is my new outlook on weight and dieting?
My outlook now is that EVERYTHING that goes into my body is within my control. My current self is a direct result of my choices. There is nothing that anybody did to me that justified me letting my health get so bad.
My blood pressure is down. Prior to this transformation I had normal cholesterol, high blood pressure, and pre-diabetic. I have low cholesterol, slightly elevated blood pressure—but the DR. isn’t concerned, and am not pre-diabetic. I can swim ½ mile before I have to stop. The fact I even go out in public in my swim suit was a challenge. Last summer I never wore my swim suit, not once. This year, I had to buy a new one, smaller and then a second one because I am at the pool so much! I can climb my stairs without getting winded.
