My Dr. Appointment Today

Was very craptastic 😦
I went in for blood work earlier in the week so it would all be back by the appointment today. Something I have feared my whole life by watching family members suffer is that I am now considered pre-diabetic and I have high blood pressure. I’ve been having symptoms for months and have been putting it off, but today was my wake up call.

On the upside I have birth control again 🙂 We talked about the Essure method to tie my tubes, and that is an option, but he won’t do it while I’m considered obese. So, for now I’m just doing BC pills.

We talked about things to lose weight and I had another light bulb moment! He told me to think of weight loss as building my dream house; at first I’m there every day, working on things sometimes all day, have all my tools there and focused. Once the house is done, it’s all about maintaining the house; you still have to keep it nice, but all of your effort and tools are not out all the time, and you’re not working on it all day. I love it!!

Diabetes and weight loss is not his specialty obviously, so I have a couple places to call for appointments in the future. I’m freaking 29 years old and way to young to be dealing with this crap. Today was my wake up call, by this time next year, this will all be a distant memory and I’ll be living in my “dream house” 🙂
