I went to the doctors today
And did the thing I was most nervous about. Asking about how unhealthy I really am. The doctor could visibly see that I needed to lose weight without getting on the scales which was a bit of a shock for me because although I know I am overweight I thought I was able to hide it quite well. Next, she measured my height and weight which created a BMI of 36. She said to aim below 30 as it is a good first target. (My other measurements are in my About Me section).
After determining that I was an eligible candidate for a free six-week exercise programme encouraged by the university for other teens such as myself I was on my way.
Although I am unsure of when I can start this programme as it is away from home, and of course over summer I will not be living here, and right now I have exams which take precedent over this new beginning of mine, I am confident I can start to look in the right direction and at least improve my attitude to being healthy.
It’s been upsetting to hear that I am worse than I thought, but I think things can only get better now. I’ve almost confirmed what I already knew. I look forward to changing my life now.
