My annual checkup happened in December 0f 2012. The doctor had not-so-good news. I was teetering on prediabetes and my future most certainly contained diabetes medication. I am not, at all, one who likes to pop pills-even taking a vitamin took some getting used to.
My doctor has been patient with me, telling me over & over that I need to make some changes in my diet & exercise, and to come back in three months for another checkup. I decided that this was it. I wanted to lose 10% of my body weight before my next appointment.
This past Thursday, on weigh-day, I was thrilled to find out that I accomplished my 1st goal. I lost 27 pounds in 10 weeks. Ten percent of my body weight has vanished.
I am actually looking forward to my next appointment!

    Yay!! That's incredible! That's a huge loss in less than 3 months. :D

    I am looking forward to this too. That dreaded doctor scale depresses me every time I go in (I usually go in at least once a year for strep throat or some minor issue).

    Congratulations. I had a similar visit, and I am determined to lower my weight and measurements by my next doctor visit in June! The blood work just indicated that direction. Got to make it happen this time. Good for you!!! Bravo!
