Doctor visit, part deux

I really wanted to post this right away, but then I was at work, and then when I got home I had to make a couple batches of cookies for a friend’s holiday party on Saturday… anyway, it’s 11:30 and I’m finally sitting down to blog and I am tired!

So I had my follow-up visit with the doctor today (plus a lady-parts exam, whee).  My bloodwork came out really well!  Cholesterol is 158, other lipids good, serum glucose good, lots of iron, everything normal.  So I am, in fact, healthy as a horse.  The doc still wants me to lose 25 pounds this year, though.  It boggles my mind– every single major, direct health indicator I have is 100% awesome, and somehow that’s not enough.

Truthfully, I’m relieved everything was okay.  I’ve internalized the “fat ~ unhealthy” message as much as anyone.  I expected there to be something wrong, despite the fact that I feel fine, because c’mon, I’m fat and could not possibly be in good health.  Yet, I am.
