*Update for August 28,2012- I went to the doctor today for my dizziness that has NOT gotten better and my weight loss was less than my scale. I am now down 23 pounds in total! My doctor suggested I drink a little bit of Gatorade to increase electrolytes and he took me off my blood pressure medication for good! My blood pressure is now good, my heart rate has lowered and my oxygen level is at 100! All from just losing 23 pounds! YAY!*

So last week my doctor told me to just weigh on HIS scale because I had weighed on mine and when I got to the doctor’s, it said I weighed 3 less pounds than what MY scale said! Since I only see him every 2-3 weeks for a check in, I really like to weigh anyways just to see if there’s any changes. This morning, I weighed on mine and it said I was one pound less than what I was at the doctor’s last week so I have either lost ONE pound or FOUR pounds….not sure which to think…. BUT either way, I know I’m still losing so that’s great news! I guess I will set my weight loss tickers for one pound loss for now and next week when I see my doctor I will see how much more I may have lost by then. My health is still doing well except for waking up really dizzy today but I took some medicine for that and am hoping it’s just a rare occasion. In the past, when I’ve woke up like this, it’s gone by the next day and the last time I was dizzy like this was months and months ago so hopefully not a big problem.
