But doctor, my legs are really muscular

I have a physical tomorrow. I scheduled my physical on one of my vacation days. This was not planned and now I pretty much ruined my own vacation day.

I'm concerned because I'm sure I've gained weight since my last physical. There was a lot of delicious food in the past two years. My clothes still fit so it can't be that bad.  Or so I keep telling myself.

At my last physical my doctor told me I was at the top of the healthy weight range for my height so I should try to lose a few to be on the safe side. I tried to show her my calves and explained that my legs are really muscular. She didn't think my muscular legs were a game changer. I mean how much leg does a girl gotta show?

So this past week I've been trying to eat better, walk a little more and not snack so much. Good plan, except that a week is not going to cut it. I'm ready to face the doctor though. Tell me I need to lose a few and get it over with. Life is not worth living without french fries. I'm still shaving my legs because I don't have a better excuse.

  1. Life without french fries for you is like life without blocks of cheese for me. Absolutely unimaginable. :) Good luck with your physical.

  2. Well you can still lose a few pounds in a week. If your clothes still fit you should be fine, and being muscular, even if it's only your legs, is a bit of a game changer.

  3. The whole fit-in-your-clothes test is the only test that matters. Fuck weighing scales.

    1. I don't own a scale. I'm afraid I would use it too much. Out of sight out of mind.

    2. I agree. I only decide I need to lose weight when I don't fit in my clothes. And it's not even because I know I'm being unhealthy, it's because I can't afford new clothes.

  4. I hear you, girl. I dread my doctor's instructions, too.

  5. I once had a doctor with a huge beer belly tell me that I should try to lose a few pounds. I laughed in his face.

  6. Life is not worth living without french fries...or donuts. Especially donuts. Ya know, my weight has fluctuated like crazy over the years, especially in my 20s, and I NEVER had a doctor tell me to "lose a few". So...get a new doctor? ;)
