I just completed my annual physical and as promised, here’s the report from my physician – “You’re doing a great job, your blood pressure is excellent, and you’re fine to not continue the blood pressure medication. Except for a borderline high cholesterol level, you’re in excellent health. Furthermore, if you’ll lose an additional 10 pounds over the next three months, we’ll postpone any cholesterol medication. You’re a perfect example of how weight loss can greatly improve one’s health.”
Woo hoo!! Needless to say, I was quite pleased with those words. This year-long journey has been well worth it on many fronts, and the receipt of a clean bill of health tops them all. I’m going to stick with this effort to lose those few more pounds and get the cholesterol level back to an acceptable level and convince the doctor once again that I don’t need medication. Now if I could just convince him I don’t need that colonoscopy!
