All went well at the docs on Monday, im now back on the HRT after a 6 year break, Im a little wary about being back on due to family medical history and my liver problems, but my LFTs have been good for a while, Im no longer diabetic or even pre diabetic!!, my blood pressure is steady but il stay on medication for the rest of my life and my cholesterol is lower ( I wasn’t aware there was a problem there), Today I had my check up with my nurse, I was so convinced I had totally ruined all my good work and had put on at least half a stone, so i was very shocked to find I hadn’t put on any weight despite the fact iv been a junk food junkie and have been comfort eating, I was 105.4kg a few weeks back and today 104.4kg today, so iv stayed at what i was, and this has given me the motivation to carry on, All the hard work i have done i have not ruined and came away so much more happier and confident ( that was until i popped into the shop, but that’s another story).
The doctor also said on Monday that i have to start wearing hats, gloves and thermals now the weather is getting cold, I don’t do hats or coats, I like to layer my clothing as i go from hot to cold at the snap of a hat, but iv agreed to wearing a hat, so when i got home on Monday i quickly whipped one up, In fact I quite liked it so am going to whip up some more over this next week, and to be honest, while going to docs this morning I did wear the hat, and yes it made such a difference I was quite shocked, being sat in the wheelchair I really do feel the cold, and just by wearing a hat I actually felt warmer, I cant really put into words what im trying to say lol.
