I went to the doctor today...not with dread...but with a bit of a skip and a hop in my step. I had asked her at my appointment in December to give me a challenge. What did I need to do to get off of some of the medication I was on? She said "Lose 10 pounds." I said "Let's make it 20."
When I walked in to her office today I was down 34 pounds since my visit in December! Go Me!!!
All my numbers were great. She said my blood work looked awesome. Then she started quizzing me on how I had done it. I told her about "Mr. Knowledge About The Human Body" and what he had me doing. She was in enthusiastic agreement with everything I was doing and wanted a name, address, hours, location, etc... Said it was a perfect example of a healthy way to lose weight!
She dropped my cholesterol medicine, said I didn't need it. She said I could stop taking the Metformin but I told her that Chad suggested I stay on it because it was supporting my weight loss. She agreed but cut the dose in half. I will always have to stay on my thyroid medication because I don't have a thyroid...but my numbers looked great.
Then she hugged me and said I was a success story! I almost cried.
Trying to cut out a few calories today. I miss them!
Had a delicious dinner tonight at Longhorn Steakhouse. A fabulous grilled trout and steamed veggies. Yummy and healthy and getting easier all the time!
I am so proud of myself.
Bring on the weekend! We are going to the Houston Children's Museum, a Sports Memorabilia convention and an Astros game tomorrow! Should be a fun filled day!
Happy Friday to you all!
