Bone Density Test

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

I went for my Bone Density Test and for my Mammogram this morning. It had been four years since I'd had a BDT, and the tech said "Your bones have IMPROVED, so what have you been doing differently?" I told him I'd been doing SOME exercise since I found Sparkspeople. He said "Well, it has helped your bones."
W O N D E R F U L.
I know I will keep being a SPARKER!! My mammogram looked okay to the tech, and she said the doctor would read it later and send me the results, but she showed me the scan. I told her I was glad I'd lost 33# and planned to lose more so it would be easier to have an accurate test.
I'm reading PAUL MCKENNA'S book "I CAN MAKE YOU THIN" and I started listening to the hypnosis CD twice a day, so I hope that will help. I plan to succeed and I won't settle for less in this WAR ON FAT.

    Despite all my weight training and fitness classes, my last BD showed a problem area so I have given in finally and got some Calcium supplements before things deteriorate. Age is a factor and possibly so was my injury last September. I'm on it 🍶

    Doing weight bearing exercises are a GREAT way to improve bone density. It doesn't have to be a lot of weight you lift either. Even squats and lunges can be helpful. So glad that you're able to SEE the difference.

    Good for you on your bdt... I had one a few months back because I had to have a baseline test before starting the anti-cancer drug Arimidex. Well, my test results came out above average. I have always exercised and done strength training as well, and my doctor attributed the fact that all of the weight bearing exercises that I had done, paid off. The test also indicated that I am "not" at risk for osteoporosis... this doesn't mean however, that the Arimidex might not cause some problems, but with a healthy diet and exercise I'm going to try to keep side effects to a minimum.

    I am glad that your mammagram came back ok as well. Now you can concentrate on your fitness/nutrition goals... You can do it.... We "can" and "will" do it....

    "Stay encouraged"... emoticon ~Dee
