I saw my doctor the other day—it was nothing serious. I had been running on my tread mill and felt my heart jump. Then after a couple more miles of running, I felt another jump. It was really hard for me to complete my run so I stopped.
Anyway, while at the doctor’s office, I was weighed. I had noticed that for the past several months that I had plateaued in my weight loss, in fact, it almost felt like I had even gained a little weight. Once I stepped on the scale I realized that I really had gained a few pounds from the last time I was there.
Since I was having an issue with my heart, the doctor ordered an EKG. When he saw the results he said that my heart was “perfect.” Then my husband’s physical appointment followed. I was there when the doctor explained to him about exercise and eating fresh vegetables and fruits.
After getting home, I looked for information about jump starting my weight loss and found an article online (http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/bob-harper-jumpstart-skinny).
The visit to the doctor’s office and the article made me realize that I had slowly slipped back to my old eating habits—eating more bread, eating more meats, eating desserts, etc. No wonder I had gained weight even though I was still running! So for the next three weeks, I will watch what I eat and follow the plan listed on the website.
I tried to start yesterday, but at the end of the day I had cake while celebrating my daughter-in-law’s graduation from nursing school.

Today is a new day!
