|Skinny period in Italy. Without glasses, but with a tan!|
I have always thought of myself as proportionally big. In recent years anyway. Before I was normal or too skinny. Now I am big. Not according to her though. She said I was obese. Top end of the scale obese. Unhealthily so! BMI of 34,8. Fat just below 45%. She gave me a lecture. Move more, eat less. Loose at least 8 kg (about 20 pounds). Get within a healthier range.
Next was blood pressure. Which was at its normal level 130 over 80. It has never varied that much. She pricked my finger to get some blood. My blood sugar was within a healthy range: 5,3 which is between 4 and 6 and that's as it should be. And my cholesterol was fine too. Low in fact at 3,94.
So, I have a goal. Loose weight and lessen my chances of heart disease, diabetes and other nasty things I don't want. Now, where did I put that chocolate??
