Bad News/Good News/My Own Outlook

Thursday, March 27, 2014

I WAS looking forward to going to the doctor today, because I know that I have been eating well, exercising, and drinking lots of water. After she looked at my chart, she said that I needed to move more and drink water! Are you kidding me? I politely told her that I was walking or cycling 60 minutes every day and drinking 80 ounces of water! Well, she was upset that my blood pressure was so high! "What is it?" I asked. By the look on her face, I thought it was astronomical! "140 over 95" she said. "But the good news, is, you've lost 9 pounds since you were last here!" Well, hooray for something! I'm happy with myself, and I'm going to keep on working on my health and fitness. My next visit is in 4 weeks and my weight AND my numbers will be down even more, thank you very much! Doctors do try to bring you down, don't they?

    good going girlfriend -- you need to hold up your right arm into the air and reach back and pat yourself on your own back! You deserve encouragement and acknowledgement and if your doctor won't give it to you, we will -- another Sparkfriend. But I do like your plan - see what happens in four weeks when you return. emoticon

    Boo Hoo! Your doctor doesn't seem to be on your support team. What goes? You're making a great effort and it's paying off with super rewards. Nice of her to add a little "good news" as if it was a gift. You earned it, you deserve cheers!! emoticon emoticon emoticon Keep the faith. emoticon

    Doctors are like sports coaches. If they tell you that you are doing great, they will be out of a job. emoticon

So I'll tell you: You are doing GREAT!

    Nice work! Keep it up and astonish her with your next visit. Maybe now that she knows you are really working at it she will give you some support. emoticon

    Congrats on the weight loss. Sounds like you have a good plan even if the Doctor hasn't figured it out yet.
