I got a phone call this morning that was slightly disconcerting. It was my friend Ginger, who is also the nurse at the weight loss clinic I am using. She said that Dr. Coyle had noticed something in my lab work that he wanted to discuss with me, could I come in right now?
Well, I don't know about you but I was out the door. My friend Lori is still here visiting and she went with me, keeping up a constant stream of chatter which helped me keep my mind from wandering into places that it didn't need to go. What ifs just aren't very helpful are they?
As I'm walking toward the front door I can see Ginger inside waiting for us but before I can freak out she got this huge smile on her face and yelled,
"You're the biggest loser!"
I had forgotten all about the contest going on to see who lost the most during the month of February. Mainly because of my disastrous second week I figured I would be out of the running. I was surprised (and relieved!) to say the least.
So for losing twenty three pounds and thirteen inches and eleven percent of my body mass in four weeks I got this really nice gym bag full of all kinds of goodies like an exercise dvd, one of those big exercise balls, a couple of water bottles, some food stuff and a digital scale and some other things.
Pretty exciting. (And way better than being told that you have some weird disease :-)
