This afternoon I went to see my doctor for the first time since I broke my wrist about 4 years ago. I went for a pre-emptive strike against those who may question my health as I lose weight. No I’m not talking about anyone online at all.
In the past people I know around here have thought I was losing it too quick or on the wrong diet plan(one year I did Atkins). To shut them up (to be blunt) I’ve gone and got blood work done each time to be sure “I’m going to live” as I usually joke. Both this time and my last time losing weight, everyone I’ve met online has been very supportive and I appreciate it.
So anyways back to the results. The doctor was busy of course and was speeding through all the different results so I don’t have any numbers besides my blood pressure. In a week or two I’m going to call up his receptionist and see if she can give them to me. Here’s what I remember: Hemoglobin,white and red blood cells,blood sugar,good and bad cholesterol were all good. There was one thing which I’m drawing a blank on that was not in the good range. He said for that I could easily improve it by walking. Now that the foot is good to go that won’t be a problem.
According to his scale I weighed 137.5kg or 303.1 lbs which wasn’t too bad because it was late in the day and fully clothed wearing shoes. Must be close to Twosville. M blood pressure last June was 118/78 and today it was 110/85 which he said was good. The only thing he was concerned about was my weight. Which was why I was in there for indirectly anyways. I was really happy to find out all my bad habits hasn’t led me to diabetes or worse. So for the most part I got a clean bill of health today which made me happy. Now if anyone questions what I’m doing I already have the ammo to stop them in their tracks.
Exercise wise I walked to and from the doc and then played badminton for 2 hours str8 tonight as there was a perfect amount of players to play continuously. I’m suppose to do three planks for 45 sec each with only 30 sec in between each too. I agreed to take up Jess’ challenge this week. I started last night and it went a lot better than expected. I was able to do 60 sec for the first one and then pulled off the 45 sec on the last 2. Last time I tried these after not doing them for a few years I never was that successful. Hopefully tonight’s go as well!
