Weigh In Monday!

Today's Weight:   282.1

It's been such an off-month with vacations and what-not, I'm glad to be back on schedule. It puts my mind at ease. No more vacation until the end of the year!

So, I'm not sure if it is a result of the new health care changes or what, but my company is enacting some massive medical coverage changes. Some are good, some are bad. The part that did interest me was the reductions in cost if you are the following:

Non-smoker ($16/off your medical coverage per paycheck)
Get a physical/gyno appointment within the year ($50 off your $500 deductible)
Take an exam on the companies website ($50 off your $500 deductible)

And here is the biggie that I am not sure I will qualify for...
3/5 of the following ($16/off your medical coverage per paycheck):
  1. 35" or less waist circumference for women (I think I might have been that last when I was 12. :))
  2. 150 or less Triglycerides
  3. >50 HDL cholesterol
  4. 130/85 or lower blood pressure
  5. 100 or less fasting glucose
Now, 3/5 can be achieved even if you are on medication, as long as you qualify. I haven't had a physical in YEARS. I've scheduled my first for August. That way, hopefully by next year I will be able to work on something if it's an issue. I have to hit 2-5 because I just don't believe in that 35" or less waist, haha! :)


  1. You are so my new best-friend, forever & ever. :)

  2. Physicals are very good to have...I love having my blood results from 2 years ago and now... Nice that the company (or insurance company is doing that!)

  3. I've been avoiding calling the doctor for a physical, mostly because I don't want to be weighed in the hallway in front of the appointment rooms. Good for you for calling a booking an appointment. I'll call next week too...
