My Knee

My knee has been hurting for the last two weeks - gradually getting worse from all the walking I do on it for work. I've been putting off going to the doctor, because I've been afraid of hearing about how I'm overweight. And if my parents ever find out I have a knee injury. . . oh no. . . they will read me the riot act about my weight!

Anyway, I went to the doctor today and he was TOTALLY awesome! Praising me for being an ex-dancer and complimenting me on my very strong legs. (See, exercize pays off!) And he never mentioned my weight. NOT ONCE! And the cool thing was, I got to see an X-Ray of my leg were you could see my muscle and my fat. And I have so much muscle as compared to fat! I think I'm proud of my legs for the first time in my life! :-)

PS - Weigh in at the doctor's office was 271.5 and my blood pressure was normal (unfortunately, my resting heart rate is still quite high - 99). But I bet my weight will be down at my next WW Weigh-In! I'm so excited I can't wait! :-)
