Not Whining This Time

You have let me whine about my medical conditions and physicians over the years, so I thought I would brag a little.

I went to the doctor today for my 3-month check-up. Yes, he requests to see me every 3 months to monitor all my little problems.

However today, he walked in the room and said "I am happy."

Then began to run through the reasons he is happy.

  • I lost 7 pounds.
  • My bad cholesterol was down were it should be.
  • My good cholesterol had actually increased.
  • My A1c (sugar) was perfect, two times in a row now.
  • My liver is behaving normal and not reacting at all to any of the meds I am on.
  • I did not have a UTI - this would be the first time in a year.
  • In fact, all my labs were perfect except for potassium which was just slightly low. An extra banana a day will fix that.

My doctor was beaming and I think wanted to do a little dance he was so happy.

Geez, wonder what would he do if I lost 20 lbs? The curiosity of that alone might be just enough incentive to make it happen.

Hey congrats on the weight loss and better health!

I am gearing myself up to start a weight loss plan tomorrow once I buy a ton of veggies.

Know any way to lose 100lbs quick? :)
