Unhealth in numbers. Getting physicled for exercise.

Friday, May 08, 2015

I did not like the nurse.
Strike that.
I liked the nurse well enough. He was 6 ft tall, very handsome but not at all susceptible to my charm.

He told me I was only 5'5". Wrong, buddy!
I ran home and had DH measure me I'm still 5'6" (whew) I might carry the weight of the world on these shoulders but I haven't shrunk almost 2 inches, only 3/4". I reached 5'6 and 3/4 inches at a peak height!.

I did not like the pre-exercise physical for determining all those numbers that are still bouncing around in what's left of my brain.

Weight 221.
Sigh, I knew my stress level was affording me pounds. I could see it in the empty box of Triscuit wasabi and soy crackers 1 day after purchase.

Body fat composition- 43%
The funny part is my bone/muscle mass is 125lbs. I keep telling everyone I'm solid!

Blood pressure-106/64. My Zen phase is working. Ying or yang, Cheech or Chong. Whatever.
I'm a calmly in-control-over-stressed-fat woman.

The rest of the numbers are just numbers Even at skinny I had a 31 inch waist so a measurement of 37.7" doesn't seem surprising.

But when did my hips get to be 50 inches? Peel me an lay me out flat, I'm almost as big around as I am tall!

There it is, the big reveal in numbers which I placed in my Spark fitness files.

Off to the gym!

    LOL! Yes, I always told my doc that I'm NOT fat . . . I am just undertall.

    Lord love a duck, if **I** shrink I'm in big trouble @ 4 ft. 10.5 in. Better keep moving those bones!

    HGUS and thanks for sharing -- put a smile on my face.

    LOL! You are too much. I don't like my trips to the doctor either. Nuthin but bad news. I keep hoping the old buzzard won't notice I'm fat but his eyesight is apparently good. He's not fat, of course.

    I'm trying to be a good girl too now. I got my new fitbit charge. Hopefully I can lose some weight.

    Baseline numbers. One day at a time, one hour at a time, one step at a time, one choice at a time. You can do this! emoticon

    Ok, consider it a baseline!
    That nurse must have no sense of humor. He just didn't "get" you! Harrumph!
