393 Pound Vegan!

393 Pound Vegan!

I went to the doctor today…   NOT THAT ONE… this one

 

 

I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant but was hoping for a little good news after 35 days vegan.  Blood Pressure was very high, and I will be adding a prescription to my list instead of getting off meds yet; but I was down a few pounds!  So 393 is todays weight.  I plan on never being the 400 pound vegan again, LOL.

 

I found out my Doctor is leaving and today was the last time I would see him, so I need to find a good one again.  I was reminded of the “Razor Blade” speech about having too much sugar in my blood.  It goes something like this… “Sugar is like little razor blades going through my body.  The smaller the vessels it travels through the worse damage that is done.  This is why they keep watch on eyesight, kidneys, and feet since these areas show signs first of diabetes’s trauma.”

So for now, I received an increase in my Insulin and my Metformin.  Lisinopril was kept the same.

 

Although B/P was high,  he did not ask me to cut down on coffee and said I should keep eating the plant based diet, and begin walking regularly.  He was confident that good results would begin to rack up quickly!

 

So I guess it is time to take the Dog for a walk after I enjoy my Avocado on whole grain toast.  Oh, and I need to double my water intake.

I will add a page to this blog where my “stats” can be tracked and easily followed as the days, weeks, months, & years go by.
