achy breaky heart

So once again it's been a while since I have written here. I am still reading and commenting as much as I can but life has been so crazy now that I have added school into the mix. I recently decided to pretty much start fresh with ww since I never got back on plan after vacation. I reset all my data with them as far as all my previous weigh ins. I weighed in this last Sunday a.m. and it showed 170.2 so that is my new starting number. My tracker at the bottom right of my blog will still go off of my total weight lost from day one. I will never forget my starting point but I felt that I slacked a lot for a month so starting over was the best thing. My new goal for 5% is 161.7 which will be my all time lowest weight since I started. I have been seeing some decent numbers lately and I'm almost back to my pre vacation weight I'm happy I only put on about 5lbs in a month. It makes me feel that maintenance is doable. I didn't really follow any plan and ate seriously whatever I wanted so if I only put on 5 doing that I know I can stay at what I want in maintenance. Getting in physical activity though is a different story. I have been having some heart issues and am not allowed to work out per dr's orders until they can figure out what's wrong or rule out everything. I had been having some heart palipatations for about 3days nothing crazy but it was a constant feeling then one day when I was at work I got super dizzy and my vision got blurry and I felt as if I was going to pass out. I figured it could be something serious and I need to get to the dr so they got me in same day and ran an ekg which came back abnormal. I had to go see a cardiologist the next day and he said he didn't think it was anything to worry about but he wants to rule everything out so no physical activity until then. So needless to say I have had blood work, an ekg, I had to wear a 24hr heart monitor, do a stress test and have an echocardiagram done and I will have my results on the 13th. It sucks because I really want to work out and being told I can't makes me want to more lol. But with that being said I have been working hard to eat super good and on plan since I can't balance it out with working out. It's amazing how easy it is to eat what your suppose to with a little bit of effort. I'm looking forward to what I see on the scale Sunday I'm ready to be at goal already. (who isn't) So thank you everyone for sticking with me and thank you to all my new followers sorry to be a disappointment but I hope you stick around once I can workout again I'll be posting more often!!!! I'll try to start doing daily posts again regardless though : )
