Doctor visit and update
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
So my doctor the one who recomended SparkPeople to me, was very impressed with the weight loss so far. SHe is also a member of Spark People, How cool is that!!. Anywho... we went over my test results and my thyroid levels came back normal ( my mom has hypothyroidism), I am also negative for lupus, gout and rhematoid arthritis. My cholestrol was good overall, my good cholesterol was 44 and the recomended was 46, my bad cholesterol was only slightly high, but my total were 191 she said and that was good. My blood pressure was 132 today...I was NOT happy about that. MY liver values were off though, not enough to cause major concern but she did another liver panel today just to make sure.
BUt the exercising has helped alot.n I do feel better as a whole, though the lower caloric intake makes me mega tired at night. I walked 0.9 miles today to get the kids from the bus stop with my BFF, and I will still ride the new recumbant bike I bought this weekend.
I like my doctor, she is highly encouraging. I especially like it that we only have like a 10 pound difference in weight and we are the same height so she knows what my daily struggles are. She is super witty and funny and is so encouraging. I need that. She even told me to go to vet school and that I am wasting my talent and intelligence by just being a tech. I don't know about that, thats a lot of pressure and stress to think about right now.
I also discovered that Chilli's has some AWESOME chicken brest on their "Guilt Less CHicken Platter" sooooo yummy!!!!!!
