Doctor's visit

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Doctor was really impressed with my progress. Weighed in at 131.....I was 188 last time he weighed me. He's letting me go off statins since the generics were not working like the Lipitor did (and I can maintain 237 without statins!), and he's lowering my blood pressure meds with an eye toward taking me off them completely if my numbers are still good in 2 months. I'm taking myself off the anti-depressants because the psychiatrist told me months ago that I was on such a low dose it wouldn't matter. So soon, hopefully, I'll only be on synthroid, fish oil pills and vitamins.

    This is what everyone should try to do. Get off the meds whenever possible.

    Congratulations. My cardiologist keeps telling me to remember that I will lose all the benefits that I gained from exercise if I stop the exercise. That keeps me motivated. emoticon
