What the Numbers say....

I had an appointment with my PCP this morning to check my bloodwork, and to reevaluate my medications.

According to her scale, I am down 7lbs from my last visit in September. Yay! However, this will not be the same number on my surgeons scale Wednesday afternoon (which is actually the day of my office Christmas party and which I will be having lunch out with my coworkers).

However, based on the numbers I got today:

A1C is at 6.3 (I was at 6.7 three months ago!)
BP is great at 120/76
pulse: 72 BPM

I am NOT anemic, and I do not have any B12 deficiency. My kidney function is great. My LDL cholesterol has come down from 145 to 130 in three months.

By my one year bandiversary, I should be off of one medication entirely, and another is being reduced to 1/2 the dosage.

I have not come close to meeting my goal weight in the first year, but my goal with surgery was to be healthier. So that I could have a kid. So that I could grow old with the love of my life.

The weight loss will come when my body is ready to let go of it. And that day is getting closer. I will meet my goal day. Even if it takes 10 years to get there.
