WW: Come what may.

Weighed in on Monday and saw no change in my weight which was only slightly discouraging. My weight may not have changed but I've noticed that my body is changing slightly - like I'm starting to get more toned in certain areas.

Went to the Dr. to find out the results of my tests and found out *drum roll please*........I'm 100% healthy!

Everything is fine - sugar levels are normal, kidney and liver functions are fine, I exhibit no signs of anemia. Everything is fine!

My symptoms may have been a result from stress and/or my not getting enough iron/ protein.

My Dr. just suggested that I include a multi-vitamin a day and continue to diet and exercise. I have to go back in three months for my regular checkup.

Can I brag a little and say that I'm rather proud of myself for insisting on all these tests, especially the one for diabetes. This entire process has been incredibly terrifying and I am so relieved to get a clean bill of health. The old me would never have even admitted that there was a problem so I have really come a long way from there.

Believe me, I'm going to do everything in my power to prevent any illness. Week to week I tend to get so frustrated when my weight doesn't change but I haven't been looking at how much it has benefited my health in the long run.

So far this week three different people have commented my weight loss, that gave me a little boost!

I really need to give myself a break at times and let everything come what may - it may take forever but it will happen!

Yeah!! Congratulations, Sand. I'm so proud of you and happy for you. I knew you would do it and here you are, totally changing your life. Thanks for being an inspiration. Thank goodness for good news!

xoxo Big hugs,
Hooray for you! I just recently had a similar experience - I had to go in for some tests that might have resulted in some very bad news, but fortunately it all turned out OK so far. It is the waiting to hear part that's so hard!

My weight loss has been slow and steady over the past few months - and it's finally gotten to the point where people are noticing, also. That is a bit scary as well, when I think how long it has been since I really looked good, it's weird to start getting compliments again. Now I am at the point where I might even start getting attention from men again, I hope so anyway, but I am not sure I know how to handle it!

You are doing all the right things, hang in there, I am pulling for both of us!
This is really a coincidence.
I did have some lab tests too.
Thankfully everything ok too.
I am not afraid of labwork.
I see it this way: It's like a car... have it checked and serviced ;-) often, and you can usually correct things before the bumpers come right off! :)
Truly truly happy for you.
Keep up the good work!!!

p.s.: I should suggest next time you go to the doc, get your BMI (body mass index i think) checked.
Why? Because from what you are describing it seems you are gaining MUSCLE, which would explain you are not losing weight right now... but believe me... this is the plain in the curve where you get more muscle and lose FAT, your body is changing for good.. Next thing you know, you will be loosing weight faster and healthier. GOOD WORK!! wear that treadmill off!
I continue to be in awe of you Sand!
