Am I On To Something?

On Monday I did something I haven't done in awhile. I went to the doctor and had some blood drawn to determine my cholestorol levels and glucose levels. I got the results back today. At first, I was alarmed because the nurse I spoke with wanted to set up an appointment immediately to follow-up with the results. That had me a little jittery. I scheduled the appointment and left it that.

I spoke to my husband a couple of hours later and he insisted that I get the results over the phone. It took another hour before the doctor called back. I suppose it was lunch time. **rolling eyes** She read the results to me over the phone. I was FLOORED! All my numbers were quite low in comparison to what I was expecting. I'm overweight and I don't eat as healthy as I should. I was thinking my cholestorol would be through the roof. Thankfully everything was great.

Perhaps husband and I are onto something with our daily workouts. I've lost a 1/4 inch of "stuff" on my body, here and there. Husband and I have kinda sworn off the scale in favor of taking our body measurements weekly. I'm pretty sure our workouts are what is bringing my body to a healthy place. Now if we could just control our insatiable appetites for everything that tastes good.

Have any of you tried Watc.hers? The work outs have become a habit, now I need something or someone to teach me proper portions and what kinds of foods to eat. Any feedback would be lovely!

You know - I'm overweight too. I'm on a quest to become healthier - but the problem is I cook (have you seen my food blog) and I don't think I cook the most healthiest stuff in the world - it's damn sure good tasting...but I'm sure the caloric count could improve.

Keep us abreast on what you're doing to lose weight. I hit the gym three times a week - I went last night and worked out w/a trainer...Olivia - geez!

Congrats on the great results. The working out no doubt helped. I'm overdue for a physical myself.
