Tuesday weigh in

Hey I know it isn't Tuesday (it nearly is for me!!!) But I don't have scales at home and I got weighed today. I am 117 kilos, a loss of 2 kilos which is about 4 and a half pounds, doing the happy dance

Last week my blood pressure was 150 on 105 and I was not allowed to join the exercise classes at the gym. i was sure it was just "white coat syndrome" coz the guy at the gym is scary. The nice lady took it today and it was 145 on 91, so back in the regions of normality. ( I could be wrong about the top number, they were just worried about the bottom one)

I start in earnest this week, my "shape shifters" class starts at work. I can't wait!

Hooray for you, Kyles!!! That is excellent!

I'm also impressed that at your gym they not only weigh you,
but also check blood pressure. Very nice!
