A Great Dr. Visit
Wednesday, November 03, 2010
I had to go to the Dr. today. It was that yearly crap appt., and also another look at bloodwork - specifically the mystery platelet issue!! And I have to tell you that again, he was ecstatic with my progress!! I think he is as proud of me as those who love me!!
For anyone reading this that thinks this journey may not be worth it....DO NOT GIVE UP!!
I have been off my blood pressure meds for at least 7 months now. Today's BP was 118/80!!! My triglycerides used to range between 350 and 500. Today they are 87. My cholesterol was always over 210 and I have family history of VERY high cholesterol. Today it was 187. I can't remember what my "good" chol. number was - but it was good as well! I am maintaining my 60 pound weight loss without too much struggle. And last but not least....I feel better than I have since I was in my 20's - which ain't bad when you are painfully close to 50!!
So - Don't give up. This doesn't have to be a huge change all at once for anyone. Baby step your "weigh" to a healthier (happier) you!!!
And by the way - That platelets are back where they are supposed to be now !!
So tomorrow I am going to get 'the girls" smushed, and then I am good for another year. My long term goal is to weigh this time next year - exactly what I weigh today!!
