Nice going David! You have inspired me to dust off my bike and get moving. I only have a three mile commute to get to work and it makes no sense for me to drive it all of the time. I biked to work maybe 12 to 15 times last year, but not since then. I too have high blood pressure and I want to get off of the meds because I really feel that they have some side effects that have caused other issues with me such as a lack of a good night's sleep. I turned 50 this year and I want to make a major change in my health. Keep the Spark going! Jerry 3439 days ago
Hi David! I am so excited for you! 30 lbs is amazing! I just wanted to let you know, this was the very first video I've watched here, and I found it so inspiring! I'm just getting started (again) on my 100 lb journey, and your video just really got me psyched!
Have a great day and keep up the great work! Shannon 3439 days ago
I too have had high blood pressure: 167/111. Since I've been on SP it has lowered considerably.
You mentioned weighing in every week; my wife and I weigh once a week, Sunday. With so many things that can affect your weight on a daily basis, we decided Sunday is the day. So, work off whatever you have eaten before that day!
I also hit my plateau last month. My weight fluctuated between 180-185 lbs. It was so irritating! But eventually, persistence paid off and I got to 178.4 lbs. I have a few more pounds to reach my goal and those pounds seem to be the toughest to lose. Of course, they're all around my mid section.
It's always good to hear motivational stories such as yours, and even greater to know another individual has regained their life. Keep persistent and keep shedding those pounds. Remain on your healthy diet and ROCK your new lifestyle! You're doing a FANTASTIC job!
Wonderful job and attitude. Oh, do you like to cycle? lol, I do too. Although a resent knee surgery has kept me from any long rides.
You mentioned the scale and weighing everyday. From what I've read they (whoever they are) say that once a month is recommended. I weigh once a week, I am thinking I might go to twice a week do to the frustration of not seeing as much progress as I would like. I tend to let the scale dictate how I feel. I have just take my measurements and my hope is that if the scale does not show the progress expected that remeasuring will show progress. I think that I will remeasure once a month.
