Surprise… and compliments
Dr. Ellis with Dr. Hodges and husband Delvin Washington (he and I were born on same day, same year!)
I am attending my annual professional development conference, the American Society of Anesthesiologists,
in Chicago. There are many people I see but once a year at the meeting. Over the past two years people have not recognized me after my weight loss
. The compliments
Now that my weight has been stable for two years, I think that people are perhaps even more surprised – now they say, “it’s nice to see you’ve kept the weight off!” I say two things:
- I want to live (and be healthy).
- I keep doing the same things to maintain the weight loss that I did to keep it off.
I have a lecture to give at 3:30pm, but I’ve planned to be at the gym right after lunch. A workout is a GREAT way to reduce stress before I get in front of several hundred people and open my mouth!
