Doctor Things

Nothing like a physical to bitch slap you back to reality. I knew I had been putting on the weight just by the fit of my pants. When I got on the scale at the doctor's office a few weeks ago, the magnitude of the problem was shown. Over the past 2 years I had put on 40 pounds. Fuck me! Granted, I had been in a physical fitness mode back then, but I hadn't realized just how much I had let myself go. Of course I blame Kitty for everything. *runs and hides* Nah, not really. It's just so much easier to want to go out to eat when you have someone with you. Going to restaurants was not something I used to do simply because it sucked to go out to eat alone. So my eating habits were drastically changed when Kitty came into my life and my body responded in a negative way. My cholesterol also shot up from a nice healthy 150 to just over 200. I had mildly high blood pressure before, but I started taking meds and it got me back to normal. I stopped taking the meds and it shot back up into the high category.

The good news in all of this is that we have caught it early. I was put back on high blood pressure meds and today the reading was normal. I had a bit of a scare when the technician didn't know what she was doing and gave me a very high reading. I had started to cut out a lot of the crap food I had been eating and have dropped 8 pounds in 2 weeks. That's pretty good considering I spent a week in San Diego where I would be at the mercy of restaurants. Hopefully I can be back at a decent weight in a few months. I have a feeling there will be a lot more salads and a lot fewer lunch outings during that time.
