Hubby and I both feel better after the visit with the electrical heart doctor this morning. He doesn't think I need to do anything else. He said I could stand for extended periods to help train my body to cope with that and not faint. But he said my heart beats regularly and is strong, it just beats a little faster than most other people. He recommended I continue with exercise at whatever level I am comfortable and is going to talk to the other doctor about stopping the monitoring since they got plenty of good info already. I LIKE this guy. ;-) This was the kind of appointment I was expecting last week. Oh, and this guy also said that if the beta-blockers I'm taking make me feel fatigued, stop taking them.
I got up early this morning with less than 8 hours of sleep so I did not step on the scale. Will weigh in tomorrow.
Regarding the movie we saw last night, yeah, it was pretty scary. A few good jumps and lots of creepiness. (Just wish they didn't have to pepper every movie with so much bad language. Although my language might not be squeaky clean if I was being haunted by a demon either!) Not the scariest movie we've ever seen. We were talking about that on the way home. I think my scariest is "What Lies Beneath" because things under water totally creep me out. Gothika is a close second. Kisa said Quarantine was hers and Ken couldn't decide. The end of Paranormal Activity was NOT a satisfying end to a creepy movie. It didn't have everything all wrapped up in a little bow and that's kind of cool.

"Go at Your Own Pace!
Okay, here's a news flash: You're one of a kind! No one in the world is exactly like you. And being unique is a fabulous thing! It's important to keep this in mind whenever you start spouting gloom and doom about how much longer it's taking you to lose those last 10 pounds than your jogging partner, or why your legs aren't shaping up quite like your gym instructor's. Instead of thinking negative, be positive and have more faith in yourself and your hard work!
You have your own healthy-weight range, based on your height and metabolic rate, which determines how quickly your body burns calories. Furthermore, different body types respond to exercise in different ways. If you're pear-shaped, which typically means that you carry most of your weight in your hips and thighs, you may never achieve the same athletic tone as someone who's naturally lean. It's just not physically possible. And you know what? That's perfectly fine!
The last thing you should be doing is comparing yourself with others or obsessing about the number on the scale. Focus on achieving your weight-loss goals on your own time line. Do what's right for you, and relish each and every accomplishment!"
