149/99 Blood Pressure + 243.5 lbs =
This morning, I had a cold hard shocker. I went shopping to pick up a few things and I came by one of those blood pressure machines they have just sitting there. I try them every once in a while and get up with a smile on my face PROUD that everything is in check
I couldn't move. A lump formed in my throat and hot tears filled eyes. Shocked by the numbers. I have never had numbers like that. I have prided myself with having a reading of about 96/64. And there I sat realizing that 149/99 was not good.
I immediately thought about my kids and how they will have to bury me soon, if I don't get this down. My second thought was I don't want to be like my mom.
I love my mom, but she is suffering from a lot of health issues and I don't want to be where she is.
I have to change I need help, but "I" to change. I think I will be going back to my vegetarian ways. Things were better then and I learned how to feed my body right as well as my family.
