Doctor's visit

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This morning, I had my periodic doctor's appointment. I go every 3 months due to my type II diabetes. I stepped on the scale and asked the nurse if she had last visit's weight. She said she could look it up in the computer when we got to the room. I was 174 today (clothes and shoes required) and I had been 183 in December. (Naked on my own scale I am 171) When the doctor came in, I asked him if he noticed the weight, and he looked back and commented that I was down about 20 pounds from September.

My thyroid level is on the high end of normal, but he said we'd see what it looks like in 3 months before changing my meds. Overall, a positive experience.

    I've noticed that some of the more successful maintainers on SP didn't start SP at their peak weight. They had some progress doing whatever it was they did to try to lose weight, looked for better tools, and found SP somewhere along the way.

    Me? All time peak weight, 221. SP starting weight, 196.6. Both of those are morning dehydrated weights, wearing briefs and a tee shirt. I'll weigh 5 or 6 pounds more in the doctor's office than my home weigh-in for the day, due to hydration and clothing.

    At times I've been frustrated by the inability to use SP to date a streak from some date in the past or backdate a starting point for weight; but I ultimately got used to it. The history would be nice, but the daily tracking for today is the most important thing for me right now.

    Thank you Andi. I was actually feeling pretty proud about the weight loss. To bad I couldn't have that starting weight on SP.
