Today, the General and I had our annual physicals with our doctor.
I should state, for those who don't know, that I absolutely, completely, and totally love my doctor. For anyone who wants a new doctor in the DC area, go see Dr. David Leonard in Fairfax on Old Lee Highway. He makes it worth the 60-90 minute ride up there. I will not go anywhere else. I love everyone in his practice.
So anyway, today was my first physical or even my first medical appointment since joining Weight Watchers. I was pretty excited about it, because I knew I had done pretty well since joining.
What I didn't expect was the gushing reviews from Dr. Leonard after a scant 38 pound loss. He complimented me on how great I looked, how much I'd lost, and how well I was doing. He complimented me on my exercise regime, asked me lots of questions about Wii Fit, it was wonderful!
And the best part?
*DRUM ROLL PLEASE*
My blood pressure is back to normal!!!!!!!!!!
It's been elevated a bit for 2 years, and today, it was 120/76. Hot diggity dog! Good bye 130/90. :-) I'm back in business, baby! Let's hear it for non-scale victories!
