I had my follow up doctor’s appointment today. I’ve been really nervous because I had gained some of the weight I had lost back. When I stepped on the scale at the doctor’s office, it weighed me lighter than I had anticipated (3 pounds less than my home scale!) According to the doctor’s scale, I have lost 14 pounds. That is my official total now. My blood pressure was back to normal and I had absolutely no edema in my legs, ankles, feet. The doctor was THRILLED. He actually said he was proud of me. He, of course, wanted to know what I have been doing to achieve this weight loss. I explained that I was using www.SparkPeople.com to count my calories and log my exercise. I said that I walk at the mall with my friend Claudia. He was impressed that we had walked 4 miles yesterday. I also told him about exercising with the Wii Fit. He was happy to hear how supportive my family and friends have been. My husband, Mike, has been so helpful and has eaten some interesting meals. (Thank you for being so great about the ones that weren’t so tasty!)
I am feeling so good.
