Medical Report

I was a couple of minutes late for my doctor's appointment this morning. (I hadn't allowed enough time to park, and Palo Alto Medical Clinic is building a new parking garage, so everything is in chaos around it.) But my doctor must have been running late, too, because I still had to wait about five minutes myself -- not that I'm complaining!

In general, my health is improving, and my doctor is pleased with the progress I'm making. I still don't take any medication to directly address the diabetes, because he thinks I'm treating it properly with diet and exercise. I just need to continue losing weight and exercising as often as I can, and he thinks most of my health problems will go away or subside. Considering how much better I feel now at 275 pounds than I did at 340, I'm inclined to believe him. The positive reinforcement he's giving me helps as well. It's good to know you're doing the right things.
