Is It A Lie If You Don’t Get Weighed?

Liar scale I got to see my doctor today. It’s the day before I leave town for a conference and a road trip. I see my doctor about every two weeks to check on how healthy my blood pressure and weight are. My blood pressure is good and my cholesterol is fantastic. Thank you grape seed oil! But…and there’s always a but isn’t there? I didn’t get weighed. I know I had gained a wee bit since I was there last but I hadn’t weighed myself at home and didn’t want to have a heart attack right there in the doctor’s office while looking at the that t”tap-it” old school scale. So, I told the assistant that I didn’t need to get weighed this time. I told the doctor that I had a bad day or two but some good eater days as well. She gave me that “I’m tolerating you because I know you can do this” look and we talked about my brother’s heart attack. She made a lot of notes about that.

I also told her that Norm and I were going on a little road trip down the coast! It’s off-season all the way down the 101 in Washington and Oregon so off we go. I love the beaches, the sand, the surf, Kmart and no sales tax in Oregon. Sigh. There had better be cheap gas there, too. But I’m going to try NOT to have biscuits and gravy anywhere! I know what good ones taste like and I really don’t need any more.

I’m not lying if I’m not talking. I do want to lose weight and have a very serious goal before my right knee gets replaced and that’s at the end of May. Thank goodness for the Canadian health system – by the time the surgeons are done with me I will be the $2 million woman!!!

But I had better make it worth their while! And for my family and friends, too! I will be walking (I’ve brought my cane) and hope to do wee bit of swimming, too. Mind you that will be in pools because the Northwest Pacific ocean is pretty cold this time of year! We are no Hawaii or Bora Bora.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to post anything while we travel so I’ll leave it up to fate and motel WiFi! Thanks for listening. ;D  Diane
