Obesity History worksheet

Today is my first appointment with Dr Babineau. I have a list of over 20 questions to ask and my new patient packet is filled out in its entirety. Wish me luck. :)

I know why I am doing this but the obesity history worksheet was absolutely no fun.

Q - How long have you been overweight?
A - for as long as I can remember...
Q - What is the most you have ever weighed and when?
A - almost 400 lbs; about 2005
Q - Please list any diets, medications or other weight loss attempts. Give dates, if can:
A - phen-phen, weight watchers, slim fast, ear stapling, naturally slim, grown hormone therapy, dietician, vegan and herbalife. 1995 - 2011.

Hoping everyone still loves me when there is less to love...

Y34:D1 - My 33rd Birthday

Today was my 33rd birthday!!!
My day started with a call from my best friend, Duck. Right after that Daddy called. :)
The plan for the day was for Mom to teach me how to make chicken fried steak. Mom didn't have a big electric skillet so Wade and I wanted to get her one. Who knew that was going to be such an ordeal? We finally found one at Target. Yay!
Mom and I spent the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon preparing lunch. Mom's Chicken Fried Steak, Mommy Corn and Purple Peruvian Mashed Potatoes. Yummy!!!
This is what I asked for for my birthday. Mommy to teach me how to make HER chicken fried steak. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. Here I am with my first batch:

I took pictures of all the steps so I can remember how to do it later. It was really an awesome time getting to spend that time with Mom. Charley, Kathy and the kids came over for lunch so I got to share my day with them too. All in all... One of the best birthdays I've had. :)
