Doctor's Office

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I went to the doctor last week and every time I am sent to the exam room - I secretly jump on the scale to see where I am - was not happy because I haven't been focused on my health at all for some time.

When the doctor came in - we talked some and then he said, "Get on the scale" - I didn't want to and told him I already knew what the reading would be - for whatever reason he continued to insist - this made me angry - but I have to admit its put a fire under my arse....

He then took my blood pressure and looked at me and said, "is something bothering you" - in my mind - yes you idiot - i am ambarrased and upset about my weight...and didn't want to get on the scale. Of course I didn't say the idiot part outloud lol

Now he is making me come back in a month, wants all kinds of bloodwork done and I am sure he is going to give me a tongue thrashing about my weight gain.... but he can't say anything worse than I am saying to myself - so onwards I go

Had to get his off my chest - its been bothering me - and am anxious about having to see him in a couple of weeks again....

Well the fire is back and I am back to spark to help me get the results I want.

    The truth is sharper than a two edged sword.... it hurts and sometimes deeply. It is probably the best thing that could happen to you......the push that gets you a car that won't go. hee hee. You will be so improved when you go back that the Doc will be surprised. I am rooting for you!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Is there anyone here who has never had a weight gain?? NOT me - I've gained and lost and gained and lost - BUT I'm finally (at age 65) maintaining my loss. You will get here - as long as you don't give up trying!!
