You Are Only As Powerful As Your Decision

You know, it took a few years for this to sink in for me.


I had moved home from Texas because I had been laid off and had gotten a new position back home. Definitely thankful for the job, but my extra 50 pounds and my bad habits moved home with me.


I liked to cook, but it was SO much easier to bring a meal home from Applebee’s or somewhere close by. I did it so often that someone said that I acted like one of those chicks who used her oven for storage. ?


It got to the point where my blood pressure and my budget made the decision for me that it was time for drastic change.


I was feeling light-headed at work and my mama suggested I see the work nurse. I did, and when she took my blood pressure, she told me to lie down immediately.


My blood pressure was 168/101.

DANGEROUSLY high for a 31 year old.


She was telling me to set up an appointment with my doctor as soon as I could so I could get on blood pressure medication. I did not want that because of the blood pressure and heart issues I had seen happen in my own family. Plus, my budget was stretched so much, I couldn’t afford to add anything else, let alone expensive blood pressure medication.


THAT was my decision point.


I vowed that I would get my blood pressure under control without having to resort to medication. And because of my personal DECISION to change, I was successful over time.
