I'm still thinking I'm 20 pounds away from where I want to be, but I'm well aware I'm stuck in the Tomorrow Syndrome. (I'll start back tomorrow!) Tomorrow never actually comes, it just turns into today. So I'm just waiting for willpower to kick back in and have no plans for an actual start date.
Maybe I never wrapped up the bloodwork and heart monitor. I had the bloodwork done 6 weeks after I went to the doctor. They didn't order new cholesterol numbers so I pretty much had four full days of temper tantrums. I was so looking forward to those 6-week results. However, the liver enzymes came way down, I mean, WAY down and my doc is well pleased.
The monitor came off a month later with only two small episodes. No big crazy ones that drove me to the doctor in the first place, go figure. All I have to show for that funness is a $1,300 bill that insurance won't cover. Even the heart monitor company sent a personal letter to me stating how they think it's unfair. Who knew that after carefully choosing a primary doctor, a cardiologist, a lab, and a hospital, that a heart monitor company could be in- or out-of-network? We've appealed twice, but it doesn't look good. The hospital advocate is supposed to be on it, but I haven't heard from her in over a week. And no, we don't have $1,300 over our budget in the bank...

Yeah, I know.
