The good news: my overall health is excellent. All my levels of glucose, cholesterol, etc. are perfect. The doctor said that he wouldn't have believed I came from a long line of hypertensive, diabetics plus a family history of breast cancer and osteoporosis.
More good news: My fitness level is excellent - except for my BMI/weight. I beat their predictions of my cardiovascular and lung function by 15%. The exercise program I've been following is working though they want me to focus more on cardio now to help with fat loss.
The bad news: A few years ago I had surgery for a medical condition and it seems like that condition has come up again and is a bit serious. The doctor doesn't see how I'll make any proper achievement in weight loss until after I resolve this problem. I know it's a bit evasive at the moment but as I said, I'm processing it all. Hopefully I'll get to see a specialist before I leave London.
It's never fun hearing that you have health issues. I'm trying to tell myself not to let it distract me from all the good news.
For now, I'm just telling myself that I should be pleased with the positive points and embrace the fact that knowledge is power. It's still full steam ahead!
