Got a call from my doctor's office today. They ran a bunch of blood tests on me and have discovered that my DHEA is low, my testosterone is low, my good cholesterol is low, and my insulin is borderline. Once I'm done with the cleanse, she's going to put me on a medical food to help me lose weight. And I have a bunch of new supplements to take.

You know, this was stuff that my former health care professionals never thought to test. So much for traditional medicine.

On the upside, I met with several of my coworkers this afternoon, all of whom noticed that I had taken weight off. Come to think of it, walking is a little easier, I'm not finding myself as winded, and I can almost climb the few stairs in my house without much trouble. Come to think of it, yesterday, after I landed and managed to get up the jetway (which didn't take as much energy as usual), I was able to pretty much walk all the way from the concourse to the baggage claim area to the van for the parking lot with very few stops (normally, it takes half a dozen long stops for me to make that distance). So, it's working.

Mary and I went to see Last Holiday today. A very good and uplifting movie, one with the message that life is meant to be lived while it's happening. I recommend it.

Off to enjoy the rest of the evening. Close To Home and Numb3rs are on tonight. Good night!
