afternoon update

Thanks for your support about the boss man. you ladies rock! and so does my doctor. I've mentioned him before in a blog, but dammit, I love this man. I went to see him today as I have to every three months to get my prescriptions refilled. I had bloodwork done last time to check all the regular stuff so we looked over that. Now my last quack never bothered to run bloodwork on me while I was going through my weight loss journey so we only had the starting point where everything was high. In fact, I've had high cholesterol since I was about eight years-old. I remember going to seminars on healthy eating and cooking then. But now, for the first time EVER - I'm NORMAL. 20 per cent under to be exact. And I've been told that my good cholesterol levels are actually on the high side, which is good. So I cried for the second time today and my doctor thought I was nuts. I had to remind him there was a bigger me before he met me and I had to refrain from jumping across the desk and kissing him. Now if my stupid headache and the boss would go away my day would be brighter.

wow!! talk about a wonderful NSV! I too don't have numbers from before, wish I did, but whats more important is the good numbers now! I'm thrilled to hear that those numbers are loving all the hard work you have and continue to put into this. In the past you have said when do you stop being the former big girl, honestly I don't think you ever stop because once you do, you start sliding back. Those numbers are just another measure to show you how incredibly far you have come, celebrate!
