I see my PCP every 6 months. There is always some reason that he wants to see me more than once a year.
It could be my weight, my cholesterol, etc.
Well this time my cholesterol is beyond normal for once. We were both celebrating in the office as a big win. That one was a long time coming.
My vitamin D though is very low. So now I’m on a prescription and he wants to see me in 6 months again. Then I reminded him that would be annual physical time so he added many more check marks to the blood work he wants me to have.
It was a good appointment. I can tell he is not happy that my weight has basically stayed in the same in the last year.
In many ways, I’m not happy about it either. What I AM happy about is it hasn’t been going up.
I told him that I to continue to work on the mental game of it and about the book I’m reading. I love how he gets it and stays positive and knows it’s just not as easy as “move more, eat less”.
I move plenty. I’m at the gym 5 – 6 times a week!
Except for my weight and vitamin D though everything is good and hopefully in 6 months it will be even better.
