Yearly Physical

Something about this weight loss is just causing a ripple effect. I went and had my yearly physical. This is what the letter said:

Dear Valerie:

This letter serves as a brief review of your recent physical and lab. Blood pressure 102/62. Heart, lungs and circulation were all in good shape.

Enclosed lab work is not bad; your cholesterol levels are a few points over ideal. Try to drop about 10-15 lbs.

Please call if you have further questions.

I had to laugh out loud when I read that. Doesn't he realize I have been trying to drop weight for NINE weeks? Nope, he doesn't. And my weight for this week is 148.6.

This completely cracked me up.

I told my Dad about it and he said one time he went into the doctor's and said, "I'm so tired. Either something is wrong or I'm out of shape." They ran some tests and the doctor came back and said, "You're in shitty shape." Cracked me up.
