Hmm...so the main message seems to be that I finally have a decent doctor again! I have to agree, I like this one much better than doctor #2.
As for the rest of it, I have mixed feelings. It's good to know that, yes, I can be considered healthy even if my weight falls outside of the healthy range. Everyone is different and the important thing is to live a healthy lifestyle. I feel somewhat vindicated.
On the flip side, I'm still not happy with where I am. The idea that I can't lose weight makes me want to cry.
Even worse is the fact that I definitely have gained some weight. My favorite jeans have been feeling uncomfortable lately and I don't like it. I may have to accept that my skinny days are behind me, but I'm damned if I'm going to let myself get more chubby than I already am.
So, my sister and I are embarking on Operation Fit Back Into Our Favorite Jeans. I set the deadline for April 29, which is 30 days from now and happens to be my birthday. Convenient,no?
I am less concerned with the scale at this point, I just want my jeans to be comfortable again. After that, well...I guess I evaluate and figure out where I want to go from there.
