Feeling Good

Feeling good ~ makes you feel good! Last Friday I had my annual physical and everything was good! My cholesterol numbers were especially good: the bad had lowered some so is at the high of good and still lowering. The good which few people get above 40 is 57 which the doctor contributes to my attendance in gym 5 days a week as well as my better diet. My blood sugar is fine. I asked what effects blood sugar and the basic answer is carbs. With the Weight Watchers food plan I am on, I eat very few carbs and when I do, I measure and so eat 1/2 a cup of rice or pasta, one slice of bread, being very careful and staying within my point count. 

I went into the appointment feeling good. I cannot sense my cholesterol or blood sugar, and yet knowing the numbers are good, I feel even better than I did at the start of the appointment. I pushed some of my exercises in gym this morning and that felt good. Knowing I am doing well is making me do even better and feel better. And, I don’t have to return until my annual physical next year. Yay!

Congratulations! Interesting about blood sugar. My previous PCP emphasized exercise on that front, but the emphasis on carbs makes perfect sense, as they turn to sugar once consumed. I could stand to cut down on my refined carbohydrates, I believe. In any case, delighted to hear about such great results.
