Ending the denial

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Well, I survived my visit with the doctor today. I think it was worse worrying about it than the actual time with her. Of course, she was running about 90 minutes late so I think that tempered her a little. She is one of those tiny little things so I don't feel bad when she gets on me about things. I sorta take offense when it is a do as I say, not as I do from other doctors.
She has given me 6 months to get my act together. She has told me I need to increase my exercise-I have to add more than walking and swimming so will work on a new program to fit into my rather full schedule. Then we talked about food and eating and she is into me cutting way back on protein and dairy-not give it up but go for low fat and eat more fish and chicken so if I start clucking, you know it got to me.
I was rushing around after my lenghty stay at the dr's office as I had to take dad to get his new glasses and it was getting close to 1 PM and dad was hungry and wanted a McDonald's fish sandwich (he weighs 135 soaking wet and has no cholesterol problem) so I stopped to get him one and I made the choice to get a salad with grilled chicken and low cal dressing today! See I can make better decisions. Then this evening we had a bonfire and hot dogs were furnished so I ate just 1 without a bun. Maybe I can do this. This isn't ideal, but I have to make things fit into my life so going to see how much tweaking I can do.
When I return in 6 mo, she is looking for me to have lost 1-2 lbs a week and for my cholesterol and triglycerides to be in the normal range. I already have muscle aches so do not want to increase any meds so I am going to do my best to regain my health.
I have only myself to blame and only myself to pull me out of this pit. Today is the first day of my journey to regaining my health.
