Dreading My Doctor Appointment This Morning

United States
December 6, 2016 7:53am CST
I have to run out of here shortly as I have a doctors appointment this morning. I had my bloodwork done on Friday so I'm sure things won't be as good as I had hoped. With everything that's been going on here I haven't paid much attention to what I've been eating and we've given in to having take out or fast food rather than cook. Plus throw Thanksgiving in the mix and I'm sure the scale will head upwards rather than down. At least my doctor is understanding and will give me a pass knowing my mom passed away and the stress before and after. Yesterday I went out and got a whole bunch of fruit and vegetables and I have to go back to cooking real food and kick laziness to the curb. Besides the scale not being my friend I'm anticipating the rest of my bloodwork to be a thumbs down too. Oh well, things can only get better once I deal with the doctor this morning.

Hopefully it will all go better than you think . . . but I know what you mean. Hubby and I will be taking some exams soon and we're doing what we can to make things "better" - but what can we do in such a short amount of time. As a friend said, "It is what it is . . . " and it's best not to stress over it. The good thing is now is a better time as any to make those life style changes . . . just get those holiday candies out of my face .

You can get back to eating healthy. Just take it one day at a time.

I've missed a few posts. I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. I hope the blood work wasn't too bad yesterday and the scale wasn't as unfriendly as you expected. This is a hard time of year to diet, but January is around the corner and the time when everyone hits the gym and actively diets for at least a few weeks.

I hope they're not much beyond their normal levels . Well, there are medications though that can normalize them again after a month or two . But i know they should be coupled with diet and exercise though .

I hope the results won't be as bad as you fear. With so much going on it would be hard to stay focussed on your eating habits as well.

I have been trying to really watch what I eat and to get more exercise. It has become easier now that I don't need to constantly keep my fathers needs in mind. Too bad winter is starting to show its face.

I do hope that your appointment went better than expected. It is hard to get back to a good diet once you get out of the habit.

Best of luck. I hope your appointment goes well. I went last week and my bp was up, so I have to take a double dose and see him in the spring. Of course, stress doesn't help at all.

I hope the news isn't as bad as you think. I understand the time and effort it takes to eat healthy. While I was taking classes, I ate a lot of junk food, but now that I am done with college, I have time to make healthy meals..Of course I still have lazy moments, but not as much as before. And a quick and easy meal is throwing some fruits and veggies into a blender with something like yogurt or my fav, almond milk and any other spices you would enjoy and make a smoothie.
