I went in for a check-up with my doctor yesterday. We went over the meds I have been on for the past 5-6 years and I am now backing off most of them. I have been on blood pressure meds, sleep meds, cholesterol meds, and more. The only meds I will be on now will be allergy meds and thyroid meds. Quite a turnaround from where I was not so long ago.
The fact that I am continuing to get healthier is very important to me. I never liked taking a lot of meds. I know they were/are there to help me stay healthy, but being in better health so I do not have to rely on them makes me feel much better. A better diet, exercise and consistent weight loss will hopefully keep me on the right track for life.
I am now looking at different career possibilities. I am also continuing to look at the best way to recognize/celebrate my 100 pound weight loss mark. I am meeting with several nonprofits now to see how I can work with them to use my accomplishment in a positive way.
