Health Score

Friday, September 06, 2013

Well I got my health score for insurance today. 3 I was suppose to get a 0 or less but I got a 3. Not sure how that will affect our insurance cost next year but I'm sure it will somehow. And I have to repeat a 'liver panel' test per my own doctor because of those darn potassium numbers. My potassium is always low. Has been for years which is why I take 2 huge potassium pills a day. I try to eat potassium-rich foods (potatoes, prunes, kale) but I'm always low. Don't know what else to do. I'm bummed, I was really hopeful this year since I've really turned my life around using SP. I'm still hopeful that as I lose more of this weight things will turn around, my bloodwork will look better, etc. I never would have guessed that being so heavy could affect your life in so many ways.

    I know it can be disheartening when you work so hard and the numbers don't reflect it. Hang in there! You are on the right track.

    Hang in there. The numbers will improve and it sounds like low potassium is your body's norm. Too bad the scorers didn't know everything you are doing and have done to provide the potassium your body needs. You are doing a great job and it will show.

    I know you're bummed about the 3, but please try to keep thinking about how far you have come this year. I'm sure if you keep at it, you'll hit that "0" next time! You are on your way! emoticon
