My Doctor's Star Patient

Sunday, June 02, 2013

That is what my doctor told me on Friday - I am his star patient this year. Well geez, I expected him to be happy about my 35 pound weight loss since my last visit but I didn't expect the reaction I got. He wanted to know how I did it, did I exercise? (boy, do I!), how do I feel?, yadda yadda yadda. Then he took me off my high blood pressure medication after taking my blood pressure no less than 5 times because he couldn't believe the numbers he was getting. THEN he told me I have probably added a decade on to my life expectancy. Pretty WOW, right?

I actually am really looking forward to seeing what the results of the blood work show. My blood work was never bad - only deficient in vitamin D, but I'm guessing the results are going to be really good this time.

All of this is really nice. I mean REALLY nice. But, the best part? I feel freaking fantastic.

We talked about goals. He asked me what I want to weigh. I really don't know, because it's been so long since I've weighed less than 200 pounds - at least 18 years. So that's my goal. We both set it because it's very attainable at this point.

All I can say is YIPPEE. Well, that's not all... I can say thank you to everyone who is so supportive and inspirational on Sparkpeople.

    You're going great! You can see the difference, you feel the difference and your doctor has told you the difference it is making to your health. That is a fantastic accomplishment!

    That is awesome...good for you! My first mini goal is to weigh less than 200 pounds too. Only 6.5 pounds to go. I hope your story will inspire me to make it sooner.
