This week, I lost 0.6 pounds for a total weight loss of 32.0 pounds. I’ve discovered the last pounds come off a little slower than before. But that is okay. I feel stronger and more healthy each day. In fact, I just bought my first bikini in about 10 years. But the real highlight of the week was some amazing news on the family front.
If you have been following my journey, you know my father has also joined me on this Nutrisystem adventure. And he went for his first check up since starting the program around the end of November. The doctor’s report was nothing less than astounding.
First, he landed himself a solid victory in his office’s annual “Biggest Loser” contest. Since Thanksgiving, he’s lost 37.4 pounds. As a side note, my uncle, father and myself have lost over a hundred pounds combined. But here’s the real juice. My father’s BMI has dropped from 31 to 26. His blood pressure fell from 132/92 to a picturesque 120/82. His triglycerides fell so far, he was able to go off a medication that costs a whopping $3500 a year. (Nutrisystem basically pays for itself). And the doctor reported, he’s likely to go off cholesterol medication if he keeps it up.
I’m bragging on my dad… only because he’s such an inspiration to me. I am so glad we’ve embarked on this journey together. And when I hear news like this… it makes me realize how impactful this lifestyle can be. Not only are we all happier, but healthier.
