So happy! (Dr's Appointment)

Back from the doctor... I'm healthy and awesome according to the doc... That's right, she said emoticon! Can I say I love my 20 dollar scale?!? emoticon At home 194.6 at dr 194.4. Booyah! A little bummed that I blew the 191 for overweight the last few days but it is what it is! emoticon

She congratulated me on the 30 pound loss since the visit last year, and about how my blood work improved. emoticon I have this thing when I first get to the dr and I get nervous and my heart will pound while they take my blood pressure. She said it was okay but borderline high. I told her about my issue and asked if we could try again and she said of course. So I thought about emoticon's and emoticon's and when my reading came back they said it was perfect! I would have never spoken up about that 80 lbs ago. I would have just let them lecture me because I was obese and they must be right, right? emoticon But now I know my body and know when to speak up! Yay me! :)

    How thrilling! I hate going to the dr. because the first thing they want you to do is step on the scale! YUCK--it's bad enough that I know how much I weigh! But slow and steady, right?

    good golly, I get that way checking my blood pressure at home! it really works better if you get a few minutes to collect your thoughts and find your way to a bit of calm.

CONGRATS on the improving blood work! although my own blood work had not yet led the doc to begin to prescribe meds or talk tough about my weight and family history I knew each visit got me closer to that... which is why I am now sparking! and using my own little bp monitor occasionally I have already seen a big improvement so even though the scale is slower to move along I have confirmation of the results I feel each day.

keep up the good work, your health is worth the hard work! emoticon

    Great news. I have white coat syndrome also, but the good news is that as your BP gets lower the affect at the doctor's office no longer matter because you are still in a good range. emoticon on such a great visit.

The doctor's office freaking out is a normal, common reaction which is called "white coat syndrome." You handled it perfectly with a little mind over matter meditation. Didn't know you could meditate did you? Thought you had to be some yogi or something? It's your body and you are in charge of it. Keep that in mind and you will win every time! emoticon
