Dreaded Dr.'s Office Scale...Whew!

Thursday, May 08, 2014

So, I have lost 30 of 95 pounds that I plan to shed. I was heading to the urgent care this morning to make sure my pain under my ribs and under my shoulder blade on the left side was not a heart attack. I decided it was from the exercising, but I wanted to have that confirmed. I normally refuse the weigh-in at the Dr.'s office, but I couldn't play that game today. Imagine the dread of facing that Dr.'s office scale. I have a digital one at home that I bought at Costco, which I feared was making me weigh less than the Dr.'s office scale might read. I selected my clothes carefully, so that they would not add too much weight. I wore bootie-socks with slip on sandals in order to stand on the scale shoe-less. The moment of truth...Yippee! The scales are reading the same! I really lost 30 of 95 pounds! Oh, and I did not have a heart attack. It was all good to go on exercising after the exam and the EKG.

    HI Jen,,

    HON PLZ if you feel U are having a heart attack,, GO TO THE ER !! FOR IF you ARE,, URGENT CARE IS NOT Equipped for such, and it'll DELAY the PRECIOUS time for helping you ,, that "hr" window.

    So "glad"??? that was """JUST""" (Hmm PAIN IS PAIN !0 the pain from the injury. On this I wish to say THANK YOU For today you DID LISTEN to ur body and did NOT do the 120 mins !!! If tomorrow , Sat, Sun, you need to take it easy it PLZ DO !! NEVER RUSH AN INJURY ,, ,and work with it,, if it's chronic,, but at the start if ur swollen, NO doubt you were told to ICE it. I make my OWN gel freezer bags,, its a 1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol,, any brand will do so I get mine at the $$$ Store,,, to 2 cups of water,,, put into freezer zip lock. Than use another zip l bag,,, and put that around it in the opposite way,, keep doing so til you've built up 8 zip locks bags levels.
