It's Going to Take Some Work

Health Check Station at my local
For the last few months, I've had a problem with my bathroom scale.  I will gain and lose more than six or seven kilograms per day.  Clearly my scale was faulty.

Rather than go to the expense of buying another one, I thought I'd check in at the free health check station at my local pharmacy.

It checks weight, BMI, body fat percentage, blood pressure, pulse, all kinds of things, and emails the results.

My results were very sad.  My weight came up worse than the scale at home said at any time. My overall health score was 3.6 out of ten or bottom six per cent of the population.

Now, don't get me wrong,  I wasn't under any delusion I was healthy, but I hoped that despite lupus, I wasn't that bad.

I guess I have a lot of work ahead of me.

Key to that will be slowly building up to daily exercise, and using my Calorie King app to get back in control of my eating.

When my steroids were reduced, I dropped a dress size, without trying, which was great. It's becoming clear, however, that to get any further will take some actual work.
