Weight Loss Tip - Keep Track

 Keep Track

One of the most unexpected, yet positive results of our respective weight loss programs was we each improved our cholesterol levels so much so that our doctor stopped our cholesterol lowering medications, which we had each been taking for almost a decade. Plus, Bruce’s daily blood pressure readings were improved to the point where he was also taken off his blood pressure medication he had been taking for over a decade.

By paying attention to our health records in these two areas, we were able to be proactive with our doctor in requesting his agreement to suspend out medications. We suggest you can also make drastic strides in your health and fitness by raising your awareness to your own health and fitness statistics and expecting improvement in both through your commitment to weight loss through better nutrition and exercise.

The most obvious statistic to track is your weight. As you lose body fat and gain muscle, all your physical improvements won’t be indicated on your bathroom scale. Here are some other measurements to track:
  • Body fat
  • Cholesterol
  • Resting heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Biceps
  • Thighs
Be as private or public as you chose in tracking your statistics. You can use a journal, a blog, Facebook, or a video series to report your statistics.

Whether or not you can avoid controlling your health with future medications, or eliminate any or all that your doctor has currently prescribed for you, is not something you or we can predict. However, based on our experience, we were delighted with these unexpected rewards in our weight loss programs.
