How about sending some snow this way - anyone? Help! It's still close to 80 degrees Farenheit - whoo, hot. My roses are certainly enjoying the weather - this one is huge and so sweet smelling.
The lab results finally got where they were supposed to go. I spent at least an hour with the doc - who looks like an angel. Truly! He is about 6'2" - very thin, blue eyes, crystal clear complexion, reddish golden hair on his hands, his thin full lipped face was framed with curly hair tied back in a knot, reddish gold with some silver in it. Yeh, I looked too closely if I can see the hair on his hands and the pores - but purity it is - I only looked that closely at the hands - but hey, its because I'm an artist. I really, really wanted to ask him to pose for me as I have a huge canvas I wanted to cover with angels, but figured he would think I was really weird. He told me that I must have had a major metabolic meltdown somewhere along the way in life. At least I felt validated about all the complaints I've been carrying on about for the last year. In six weeks to two months, if I do everything he says, I will be a new person. Then he asked me for my lowest weight - and I told him. He says, "Wow, you must have been gorgeous." in his quiet, matter of fact voice. Well, hey, this is about 80% more exciting than Antonio Banderas (the Dr. that did the non-surgical disc decompression stuff)!
Where else could a grandma have so much fun? I must add that his office manager watched over him like a pit bull over a steak.
Then he gave me a bunch of medical studies on several issues for my reading and prescriptions and told me to go buy "The ABS Diet" and the accompanying smaller book with it. And to begin walking next week and work up to three miles a day. I gazed in those blue eyes, momentarily forgetting my avid hatred of anything that smacks of exercise, and said, "anything else?" Yes, more - he handed me a long list of vitamins. At least I can still have my lattes - I can't wait for six weeks to pass!
This dr. turned my oldest daughter's life around - she went into a rapid decline after a surgery and spent about two years mostly in bed. She's looking gorgeous again and back in life with her usual gusto.
Spent the morning today going with daughter to the cell phone store - she was craving a new Blackberry, which she got and gave me one like her old one, which really was a replacement for the slightly malfunctioning old one, a Palm Treo. Did I ever dream those techie phones I lusted after would actually be mine? I always bought the cheapest ones.
Then I got some groceries - the ABS diet seems peculiar in that you can even have ice cream. However, since Thanksgiving, I've decided I have a problem when it comes to anything with sugar in it, so I had best avoid the stuff. I've finally made the break, but its been a couple of weeks. Didn't put on additional weight though! I don't eat sugar often, knowing that when I do, its like crack and it will take some time to get back off it. Well, no, I've never did crack, but only hear stories.
So the next few days will be spent gathering in the prescriptions, vitamins, and also in making charts, menus, etc., so I can begin a new disciplined era. Eeek. Maybe I'll eventually be able to get somethings done!
