No, I don't want to take my medicine!


I thought I would never hear those words. I have always been healthy! No, I don't like exercise. Yes, I'm borderline obese (have been for 6 years). I ate everything and anything, simply because I wanted it. Food was my fair weather friend. How stupid. I need my "crunch friends".

"Your blood pressure is too high" the doctor told me yesterday. "No way! I've NEVER had high blood pressure" I argued. "Well, you do now!" he retorted. This was a first and I was upset and angry.

I went to see the doctor yesterday because I am having headaches and last week, an explosive one. Dr Camino says they are not migraines. I don't care what he calls them. I only want them to disappear. But high blood pressure!?!? That's not good. I got him to agree to wait a couple of weeks to see if I can bring it down with diet and exercise. I thanked God this morning for Christmas Crunch and all of you my crunching friends. I'm praying that this challenge and the changes we are making here will be lifelong and teach us to take care of the temples God has given to us! (and that my blood pressure will come down and I can avoid the meds!) Animo ladies! Animo!
