Appointment #2

Well today was my second appointment with my PCP for the mandatory 6 months of Physician supervised weight loss program. I dropped 5.5 lbs of just keeping a food journal and watching what I eat. My doctor did answer the most important question of all, yes, the A.H. I used to go to sent over all my records, so the medical history should not be a problem.

I am over relieved with this news. I promised to start walking more and eating better. My BP was still elevated, but my blood sugar level is just perfect. My pulse is good, and everything else seems to be good.

My next major appointment is my sonogram scheduled for January 30th. This will be the second one of these I have had. The first was very uncomfortable. Have you ever drank a liter of water and then had someone press down on your blatter for over a half hour. I could not wait to, well you know. I have to do that again in 2 1/2 weeks.

My food journal is one month old, and I have found that I really do eat junk food. The first week is nothing but junk. I mean I eat a good healthy breakfast, then junk for lunch, and an attempt at a balanced dinner. Candy and chocolate are my down fall. Addiction is a terrible thing, and I am addicted to chocolate. I feel like I have to have some every night.

That is a habit that will change. I will have to give up chocolate. I also have to give up gum, but that is another blog for another day.

Well it is 13 degrees here in Erie, with a wind chill factor of -1, so I am going to bundle up and check the forums, and try to get some sleep.

Good night all, and God bless.
