It’s been seven months since my last visit to my Internist. Earlier today, I had to go to finally get it over and done with. The appointment has been postponed twice. I’ve used the weather as my excuse for re-scheduling the past two appointments, but in reality, I was apprehensive to see my doctor because I didn’t want to hear any sermons.
Because of hypertension, I’m fully aware that I need to watch my diet. Low salt, low fat and exercise are on the top of the must-do list. But with the two vacations that we took this year, I admittedly lost tracked. How can I deny the number on the weighing scale?
I weighed in seven pounds more today from my last weigh-in seven months ago. No, I did not hear any sermon but in a subtle way my doc insinuated that I should work towards going back to my optimal weight, in short, weight loss effort is the doctor’s order.
My dilemma now is how to go about it. The holiday-eating season is just right around the corner and I’m due to see him again in four months (see? I’m back to four months instead of six months doctor’s visit interval. obviously, my doc finds six too long as I tend to go out of hand). What is the easiest way to lose weight? Starve!!!! ( with my big appetite, I don’t know about that).
