There's not much to report on the weight loss front today. I went to the doctor this morning. He was pleased with my continued progress down the scales. He still wants to keep a close eye on my liver function. Blood was drawn today, and I have appointments to go back in 3 and 6 months for more blood draws. I really don't know what that is all about, but he does. He's the one that has been to medical school, so I'll let him worry about it!!
On a personal note, 65MD's sister and her husband live in the Tuscaloosa area. The building where she works took a hit in the storm yesterday, but she was home and unharmed. I have not heard about her work space today to know if she was able to go to work or not. A cousin was not so lucky. His house was totally demolished in the same storm. He had taken refuge in the bathroom as the most interior room in the house. He survived physically unharmed, but that was the only part of the house left. He literally lost everything.
All of the devastation around us, gives me flashbacks to the floods we had almost exactly a year ago. All of it gives me perspective. I need to be healthy and strong for sure, but I don't need to be worried about having the body of a model. I'll definitely keep chipping away at this last few pounds, but if it never comes off, there are more important things in life. I'll try to keep that lesson in mind as I go forward.
