Tomorrow a man is coming to my house to do a physical examination for my disability and life insurance policy. I have had this policy for about two years now and it never occurred to me that my weight might be affecting my policy payments. A few weeks ago I had met with my financial planner. Because I have been moving quite a bit over the past two years she and I had never met face-to-face. When we sat down to talk about this policy she skeptically asked if the weight listed was current. 232 pounds. For the first time in my life I could truthfully say no. That weight is not current and it hasnít been for almost 18months. Oh okay she replied well then we need to have you reevaluated. I jumped at the chance. She said no one has ever been as excited about a wellness check as I was at that moment. Iím actually excited to have someone come to my home and weigh me for an official record. My weigh-in tomorrow should be almost 45 pounds less than the last time I was evaluated. This will probably knock $20 off my policy each month. The first thing I thought about doing with that money was buying fruit. Cherries to be specific because I somehow managed to lose an entire bag between check-out and my home last week and I am still not over it.
Oh how the times have changed.
