getting older

i don’t mind getting older
i am actually quite enjoying it!  well, most of it.

if i could just have my 20 year old body and skin again, i would be perfect!!!

the older i get…the more my perception changes.

i see the changes in myself.  although gradual…how do you NOT change as you mature?

i know now, that i wouldn’t have spent a second of my emotions on all the stuff that seemed tragic and dark when i was younger.

i know that i am more than my waist size, and that the colour of my hair is whatever the box says it is.

i know that words like blood pressure and cholesterol and heart disease are more than just words…they are reality as you get older.

enter my doctors appointment yesterday.

i was never called with any results from my physical back in November.  No news is good news right?

well i went to see him yesterday…for a headache i have not been able to shake in 2 weeks…
and i was told that my cholesterol level was the same as the year before.

we both thought for sure, with the weight loss, working out, healthy living stuff…that it would have gone down.  it actually stayed the same.

i don’t know what the number means.  it just started to be part of my life as of last year.
my cholesterol level showed it’s face for the first time last year.
6.4 is the number.  that’s all Greek to me.
it was inevitable…i always knew that.  it’s genetic, and i have a big family…all who seem to have high cholesterol.
so i get my moms hips and my dad’s cholesterol issue.
thanks there universe 🙂

anyways…it’s nothing to panic over.  nothing at all.
he recommended a low fat diet.
blahhhhhhhh
low fat???  what is low fat????
i have been spoiled by my low carb life, i just could not imagine changing the way i eat.
it wouldn’t hurt to look in to it i suppose…but i feel like a kid right now…i wanna stomp my foot, yell NO…and run away.

there is room for improvement…i know this.  sometimes i take advantage of eating low carb and eat things that aren’t the healthiest for me.
i could always cut those things out…

who knew that one day i would have to worry about a number…that’s not on my scale?
not that i am worried…i just want to lower that number.

although…i’ve got “better than normal” blood pressure.
actually, perfect he said.
who knew that would make me feel so happy and relieved???

lol…as i said…i really don’t mind getting older…
but there are just some things i could really do without.

like low fat.

i don’t wanna!!

    I’m really bad about doctors…never go…never get tests…will probably just keel over one day! I try to eat healthy…but don’t they always tell you that you need fat in your diet? Does olive oil fulfill that requirement? I hope you’ll let us know what foods you can eat on a low fat diet. 🙂 I hope they are ones that you really like and won’t be much of a chance from your low carb. 🙂 Have a special day! 🙂

      i don’t think i will go the low fat route, although i will make some dietery changes…see how that pans out. maybe cut back on the red meat and fatty salad dressings. i will let you know when i figure it out. right now i like being in denial lol.
      and you young lady should get thee to a doctor and take care of yourself!!
