What's that? Almost 39 pounds and 27.75 inches lost in 9 months? HELLS TO THE YEAH!
Also? My body fat percentage? Decreased 3.8% since January.
On top of all of that, I had my Peak Health appointment today and, according to her scale, I was 299 today and was allowed to do the bike test to determine my cardiovascular health.
She had to write down FAIR because of my total weight but she was SHOCKED at how little that bike impacted my blood pressure and pulse. She said the % change would have me in the EXCELLENT category at a healthy weight.
This annoys me and delights me at the same time. I mean, really, why is my cardiovascular health level dependent on my weight?
My blood pressure was 118/80. My pulse was 80. Neither showed any measurable increase during my bike test. Obviously, I am taking care of my heart and doing all of the things I'm supposed to do and I handle the basic stress test perfectly then, obviously, my heart is freaking healthy.
Just another reason to hate being this fat. I am tired of doctors making me feel like my efforts aren't enough. I know I'm not thin but, damnit, I am doing everything possible to be healthy and being told I'm in FAIR shape only makes me feel even worse about everything I'm doing.
However - HA! Talk about progress since much of that was since January. In January I was 324 per the Peak Health scale. I'm kicking butt and taking names this year!
