so today was the day.
the big weigh in.
it’s the very first thing i do even before i step into the room – i get on the dreaded scale.
every time i ask him if i should take my shoes off. every time he says no.
every time i say take five pounds off the final tally
and every time he laughs – as if i kid.
i held my breath and got on…and he adjusted the weights and voila – there was my current weight.
how much do i weigh?
well i am not going to tell you that!!!
i did gain weight though. i had a feeling that would be the outcome.
how much weight did i gain you ask?
are you ready?
yup, i gained half a pound since last year.
to be fair…after my doctor’s appointment last year i do believe i dropped another 2 pounds.
so i’ve gained a couple of pounds.
i have basically maintained my weight for a whole year – if not longer actually.
that brings me immense pleasure, because that means i am being smart…i think i finally know how to stay on track…
even if there are a few slips along the way.
as my good friend pointed out to me – she told me to not even worry about a couple of pounds
because i’ve been doing weights for just under a year, and i was warned by my personal trainer that i would see the scale go up
and up it went. half a pound.
half a pound!!!
i am feeling good about it 🙂
everything else about me is awesome – although i still have to get blood work done.
he wants me to get my eyes checked ASAP – he think we should rule out eye strain for my headaches
sure it’s been about 12 years since i’ve had my eyes checked but i think they are just fine!
he’s booking me an MRI – just to make sure my brain looks sexy and awesome.
he asked if i was claustrophobic
and i said oh hell yes…because i am, very much so.
the kind doctor who knows i am not into pill popping gave me a prescription for Ativan – suggested it would be a good idea to take before the MRI
also knowing that i have quite the intolerance for meds – he let out a chuckle and said i should do a test run and take a pill at home before the appointment
haha – funny man.
good thing i love him – and good thing i am so blessed to have a doctor who actually knows me and my body.
i will most certainly do a test run at home. anyone wanna come over and get stoned with me? my doc says it’s all good.
