This morning I went to my PCP for a follow-up appointment. I lost 15 pounds and my blood pressure came down 20 points! I am so happy. She said that I am doing wonderfully and encouraged me to keep up the good work. Additional blood work was taken to check my current TSH levels now that I have been taking thyroid meds for 4 weeks. I will get the results next week to see if I need any adjustments. My next PCP appointment is April 17th.
Earlier this week, I attended a surgical weight loss support meeting. The people there were incredible and eager to share what they had been through. I learned a lot and I am looking forward to the next time I can attend.
I have got the date for my orientation. It is April 21st. I am so excited to finally be on my way toward the healthier me. I feel that I am taking positive steps in hopes of the best outcome possible and I am ready for the rest of my life.
