Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

I'm so glad that we are doing this!

I started at 197 on Jan 22nd.

Down to 182, as of yesterday (4/14).

Goal.
165 by August 1st, 2012 (my son's first birthday)

I'll be eating smaller portions, doing yoga 1-3 times a week, trail running and weight training.

Re: Weird episode.....

Yes, you should most definitely have this checked out by your OB and keep track of your blood pressure at home as well.
