Apparently I'm a 'great' exerciser

I had my Cardiac Stress test on Tues. The Cardiologist was VERY impressed with my ability to exercise. I found it amusing because I was on the treadmill for only seven and a half minutes and I was beat and out of breath. I guess there aren't a lot of really fit people taking these tests because anyone reasonably fit would have kicked my butt.

Then the doctor and his technician tried to talk me out of surgery. I wasn't big enough. I could do it with diet and exercise. Blah, blah, blah.

I chose to be amused as it was the first time someone has told me that and I've been waiting and waiting for it! I am now officially a LightWeight*

*a lightweight is someone who is getting WLS with a BMI around 40-ish or lower. In the WLS we are actually considered lightweights even though in the real world, we are big time FATTIES!
