Keep up the good work!

Yes, that is exactly what he said about the Spark Plan I've been on as well as my plans for my future !!!!!!!

The stuff I'm dealing with is genetic - both dad and mom's side of the family.

He increased my blood pressure and wants me to track it daily and report back to him in 6 weeks.
He did NOT put me back on cholesterol Rx! and I'm REALLY happy for that!!!

He thinks as I continue on my plan to lose a few more pounds and increase my aerobic a bit that my health concerns (blood pressure, cholesterol and pre-diabetes) should take care of themselves.

However, the problem with my right hip is sciatica and he suggested continuing with acupuncture. After looking at my bone density results from 5 years ago, he wants to take another look to see if there's any change there that could be causing or contributing to it.

I have an appointment for annual mammogram and another bone density test in 2 weeks.

And I go back to see him May 30 for follow up.

Thank you for all your support. I would not have done it without you!!!

I'm doing the happy dance!!!

    Your Happy Dance made me smile this morning as I thought about how happy I am for you success!

I'm curious that your doctor didn't order further work-up on your hip and/or your back such as an x-ray or MRI (maybe you have already had all of this done recently and I'm just not remembering).

Forward March into Summer and more successes! The weather here still isn't warm enough riding. Do you believe it! ARGH! ! !

I wish my doctor would take me off the cholesterol med. Even though my cholesterol is fine...when he puts all my info into the computer - age, sex, family history - the computer says I need the med.

What ever happened to common sense?
