I hate the TV -
My boyfriend, on the other hand, loves the TV.
I was trying to have a serious conversation with him today about the possibility of surgery, and he was watching American Chopper reruns on Discovery.
I got my blood work results back from the doctor, and my insulin levels are good, my progestrone levels are good, but my cortisol levels are high. So, I have to have more testing done. That is really lame. I have to go Monday to get the bloodwork.
I am not exactly sure what that means. I have tried google searching it, and I keep coming up with all of this stuff that really doesn't explain too much of anything really. It just says that is can lead to belly fat, but doesn't really seem to explain why or how or even IF that is what is making me not lose weight.
I made my Boyfriend sit with me today, and I showed him charts and graphs and explained to him about calorie deficits. I showed him data that I had been collecting via Spark to help explain my point. I think he understands my problem finally.
We did talk at length about the possibility of getting surgery. I called the insurance company and they cover it. I meet the qualifications. So we shall see. I am hoping this Cortisol problem is the issue, and once I get it fixed I will lose weight like a normal person. That is my hope anyway. If not, then it is time to look at other alternatives.
What worries me the most is that I have a genetic history of heart disease. I have some type of protein that shows up in my blood work, that predispositions me for heart disease. That scares me.
I think that is all for now
