The Doctor's Visit

Friday, October 04, 2013

As you know I have made A LOT of changes in the last four months. If you missed 'em just read my previous blogs. So today was my first doctor's visit since making the big push. The doctor and his nurse were both astonished and delighted. I lost 43 pounds in 4 months and all my blood numbers were in the normal range. My fasting blood glucose - 89 - was the lowest they had ever measured from me.

Flush with this success, I am making a new resolution, and making it publicly to all of you: By January 1, 2014, I, TaiChiDancer, will no longer be obese.

The last time I was not obese was more than 15 years ago, so I'm moving into some "seldom trod" territory here , and I'm a little nervous about declaring this out loud, but I'm doing it anyway: 2013 will be the LAST year of my life where I am obese.

    I know you can do this. It is also my goal to hopefully reach by the end of the year. I also dont remember a time in my life without now knowing I was obese all my adult life.
Keep up the great job that you are doing. You will reach your goal!!!
