Doctor Visit

Well, I just got back from a follow-up visit to my Doctor not too long ago. Everything went very well.

1. I lost 5 lbs. since my last visit about 3 weeks ago. She said that I wasn't eating enough calories and to try to eat 1400-1600 calories per day instead of the 1200-1300 calories like I've been doing for almost a year now. She thinks that is why I haven't been losing more weight like I want to. She thinks I am starving myself or at least my body thinks I am. We'll see how it goes. I want to lose 25-30 more lbs, so I am hoping this slight diet change will help me reach my goal.

2. My blood pressure was great as usual. I have always had good blood pressure. So 114/72 is about normal for me. I was worried that my pressure might have been high due to the intake of some serious amounts of coffee prior to my appointment. Evidently, the caffeine didn't do a thing to my pressure. My pulse wasn't even high.

3. My Doctor is extremely happy as I am with how the lexapro is going for me. So, we are sticking with it. It has been a miracle med for me in so many ways. I am so much more a better person because of it. Life is much better for me and my hubby. As he puts it, "you are a much better person to be around with now."

4. Don't have to go back to the Doctor for three months. Whoo-Hoo!

I do have to go see a Dermatologist about this mole on my lower back. I have had it forever, but it has changed size and shape. My Doctor wants a specialist to take a look at it and possibly remove it.

On a different note, I am going to fly down to my parent's house in July for 5 days. I can't wait. I want to see my mom for her 70th birthday. My husband is not coming because he will be extremely busy at work, so he'll have to take care of the animals and all my flowers. I hope everything is still alive when I return. LOL!

Well, that's pretty much it for me. I will have a new renter soon, I am still deciding which one to pick. So when I do pick my renter, please give him or her a warm welcome by visiting his or her blog. Thanks bunches!

How did you get offers. No one wants to rent my blog. Sniff sniff. LOL

As long as the mole isn't discolored hopefully there isn't a problem.

The Lexapro is working pretty well for me too! I wish I would've been prescribed this before that Wellbutrin..... ugh...

I don't lose weight for the same reason. I don't eat enough to move my metabolism...

Wellbutrin made me want to jump out of my skin. Ugh!
