Movin' right along...

Friday, September 17, 2010

So I went to the doctor today. First time I've seen a non-psych doctor in at least 5 years. It went okay. My blood pressure was *really* high (for me) for some strange reason. Lower than usual on the bottom, but the top number was higher than even the reading I got before I started eating better and exercising. I'm going to chalk it up to a faulty machine and just keep an eye on it.

But more importantly, my weight had gone down a bit more. I suppose I should be cautious, given the anomalous reading on the blood pressure machine. But I would rather just assume it's correct, because it means I get my second reward for losing weight.

I had written it down as 'two CDs' but I decided to grab a CD and a book I've been looking forward to. The book is 'The Spirit Thief' by Rachel Aaron. A woman handed me the first two or three chapters of the book as a sample at Dragon*Con. I didn't expect it to be any good, but I was really engaged by it within just a paragraph or two. I can't wait to read it. Hopefully it holds up to a full read.

So, things are going well. Assuming my weight reading wasn't just a fluke. ;)

    I agree with Caroljean, a LOT of people's BP goes up when they go to the doctors. I work in doctors office from high school until the early 90's. We ran into that a lot.

    Sounds like an awesome reward. Shoot me a PM and tell me about it.

    Way to go on the weight loss emoticon

    Congrats on the weight loss and the rewards you gave yourself. As far as the blood pressure, sometimes people get anxious in the doctor's office and get higher readings.
    I would believe the scale!!!
