I wanted to get my BMI this am when I went to the gym and Linda had me hop up onto the scale again. (Last time they took my BMI, it was 53. This am, 33).
The scale in my doctor's office and the scale in the gym are equal. I would always double check: weighed at doctor in am, weighed at gym in evening.
I've lost 4 pounds since my doctor's appointment.
FOUR POUNDS IN 48 HOURS!
Eight pounds in 10 days.
That is really scary. I know that diabetes runs in my family (my father). If this is me getting diabetes, why didn't it hit me when I was over 300 pounds? I'm getting healthy, so why now?
I'M THE FREAK THAT, WHEN TOLD TO BRING A DESSERT TO A DINNER, BROUGHT APPLES!!!!!!!
(Don't worry, I also brought a cake).
I'm sure I'm just putting the cart before the horse and that nothing is really wrong and, according to Linda, maybe my metabolism is increasing and my body's freaking out and it will all even out.
My sister's response: "Eat more."
I'm eating what I'm supposed to be eating. I'm not starving myself. I want this weight loss to last, so I'm being healthy about it. I'm eating enough (sometimes more than enough but rarely not enough). I'm not overexercising. I am being smart about this.
Off to talk with my auntie, my "on-call medical professional," and with Dr. Mom.
