Dr. Update

Friday, September 17, 2010

Although I had to increase the levothyroxine, overall a good trip to the doctor on Wednesday. Funny story, the new nurse asked if I had, by chance, lost a lot of weight. I replied that I had lost some weight and asked why? She said the computer had a pop up that said she had to verify my weight because I had a drastic change. Turns out, I was 273 in February at the doctor (about 3 weeks prior to starting Spark People) and I was 226 on Wednesday. Yay! 47 pounds. He said to keep up the walking and great job to me and my husband for the weight loss. He will check to see if my cholesterol looks better in a couple months when he rechecks my thyroid to make sure my new med level works for me. It was also the first time he has talked with me about symptoms to look for in keeping on top of my thyroid levels. Good information to have...First good doctor visit in years!

    Yay, you actually talked to your doctor. I guess we do pay them for their service so it makes sense but so often we seek guidance and forget to ask! Maybe you're onto more success since your meds are getting changed.

What great way to end the crazy week!

    Woo Hoo! What a great feeling to have lost nearly 50 pounds since the last visit. That is just amazing. I love it that even the computer was impressed by your loss! Keep up the great work. Just imagine where you might be by your next appointment...!
