My new company signed me up (without warning me, I was lucky that I saw the schedule posted by the copy machine yesterday!) for a "health check" where they look at your BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, etc. I'm still chugging along just fine.
My blood pressure is a tad high but not too bad: 134/80. Which incidentally means that I could become a truck driver should it become necessary or advisable. Blood sugar is fine. Cholesterol is fantastic. Apparently all the oatmeal and garlic I eat is good for something.
I'm just really, really, really, incredibly FAT. I got the usual comment from the nurse when she saw the scale, "You don't look like you weigh that much!" Well, I FEEL like I weigh that much. Or, rather, my ANKLES feel like I weigh that much. And hips. And my knees pop when I stand up after sitting still for a while. Ugh. I'm thinking of joining a gym, I've already (mostly) gotten used to standing all day at work. (When you weigh 344 lbs, it's no picnic, let me tell you! I've weaned myself off the advil only with effort.)
So there's the update for anyone who cares.
Book reviews, art, gaming, Objectivism and thoughts on other topics as they occur.
