(1) Fasting is no fun. I can’t wait for my blood draw so I can EAT!
(2) I had to get a tetanus shot. But the vaccine also prevents whooping cough so that’s good.
(3) I was talking to my doctor about my concerns around type 2 diabetes (lots of people on my father’s side of the family). And I said I know I have weight to lose, I mentioned that I had lost weight and am maintaining…and then I went into my usual “I know I have more weight to lose..”
My doctor cut me off! He said, “you’ve already done the hard work and you are close to an ideal weight. Yes, as we get older everyone can stand to lose 5-10 pounds. But don’t short yourself for the work you’ve done to lose and then maintain.”
It was definitely what I needed to hear today. Well, that and “wear sunscreen when running, and make sure I exercise regularly.”
