What I Know - W9.D5

Thursday, June 24, 2010

What I know is that I'm not going to die. Not yet. At least, not from diabetes or high cholesterol.

What I know is that I am borderline everything. I'm pre-diabetic and while my bad cholesterol level is fine, there are too many cholestrol particles in my blood.

What I know is that, had I not joined SparkPeople two months ago, this news could be a lot worse.

What I know is that my doctor gave me kudos, asked if there was ANYTHING she could do to help me, and told me to keep doing what I'm doing and we'll check again in 6 months. (I told her about SP, she told me about an 800-lb patient who is now a 400-lb patient. I *LOVE* my tiny, pocket-sized doctor!)

What I know is that my flight is booked for NYC. I will stand proud and strong and will blow them away...and if they still pass, I will learn something from the experience and feel better about the next interview.

What I know is that I have confirmed my interview time and was told to simply bring myself.

What I know is that I will be bringing a copy of my resume, some examples of my work and my writing, and a nice suit.

What I know is I'm having a he11 of a time trying to find a suit to fit my body. I wear a bigger size in pants than I do in shirts/ I need to mix and match. I want something professional and that looks really good on me.

What I know is that I need to at least get my hair thinned, if not also trimmed. I may get a manicure early that week...we'll see.

What I know is that I got a bajillion compliments, "how are you doing it?"s and other great comments from people at work. They quizzed me and then someone else called me over to quiz me. "You can definately tell you've lost weight!" they said. I told them 30 pounds in 2 months and jaws dropped. *big grin*

What I know is that it was too humid to walk at lunch today. I did a tiny bit of grocery shopping (cheese, mushrooms I needed for breakfast omelets, and a salad for lunch, and some peaches because they looked cream! *lol* No worries, it's a single serving cup of Skinny Cow.)

What I know is that I have Zumba scheduled for tonight at 6:30pm.

What I know is that on the way to work today they played "Oh My God" and I could see the Zumba routine to it in my head...and couldn't help shaking my booty/hips right there in my seat! *lol*

What I know is that I nearly got a friend to agree to come to Zumba with me...but she told me to rain check it since it's her TOM and she's not feeling so hot right now.

What I know is that I love and thank you all for your support, encouragement and enlightenment. You've taught me to be a better me. You've picked me up when I've been down. You've high-fived when I have good news. You are all amazing! SP is such a blessing...and so are every last one of the Sparkers here! Hugs all around!


FYI - Today is a good day. emoticon

    Great blog! I am happy to hear that you have a supportive physician helping you out. Congrats on getting ready for the interview. I also have to buy suit coordinates, although now that I have lost most of my "top" weight, my legs are slowly starting to catch up. I have hopes someday of being one true size! Good luck!

    Any day when you can state uncategorically What you know is a good day.

    You are an inspiration! WTG!

    It's great that you are doing something now while you are simply borderline! It's great that you're going to be able to manage these potential problems through your newfound healthy lifestyle! Just a little extra motivation to stick with it on those tough days. I'm so happy for you for going for the job interview. I'm sure you'll find a great suit!

    That's good news, actually. Because if you're on the border and you're doing everything right, you should be moving far away from high cholesterol and blood pressure and diabetes.

    So keep it up!!!
