As you all know, I had started my journey in 2011 at 290+ pounds, taking 13 pills of medication a day and the Dr. was threatening Insulin!!! In Dec. 2011 I started my “eat smart” routine combined with 60 minutes a day of “movement”. (Treadmill, Bike Spinner, Walking, Running, Biking, etc.)
I was making excellent progress and by the time I went to my Internalist for a 6 month follow up appointment to see how I was doing in July 2012, he had suggested that I switch from 1 Diamicron a day to 1 Metformin and provided Trajenta in case my sugars spiked. I was also down to just 1 – 4 mg of Coversyl for BP, and I was still taking 1 Losec for stomach acid. He also suggested I drop the 1 Lipitor for Cholesterol as well: the new total: 3 pills down from 13 =D
Since then, I never needed the Trajenta, I eliminated the Metformin, I have weaned myself off of the Losec, and I was down to just 1 Coversyl a day. I had also started taking my Blood Pressure regularly and brought my chart with me (mostly 115ish over 65ish).
So, TODAY, down 100 pounds and holding; my Dr. says; “it’s time to get rid of my last pill – no more Coversyl”!
Wow, Moving to Live Works! That’s right! ZERO Pills as of today! =D
Down 100 lbs and I no longer need the original: 8 pills for Diabetes, 3 for High BP, 1 for High Cholesterol, and 1 for Hiatus Hernia! I started taking the first one at 18 =|
I’m Blown Away!!!! Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you everyone for supporting me through this incredible journey!
