Changes

October 15, 2011

This week while seeing one of my patients for a follow up visit, I asked one of my standard questions–”So, has anything changed since we met last?”
“Yes” she said, “I am getting hit on again!” Cautiously, I asked her if that was ok.
“You bet” she said “it is good to be noticed”.
Now, I wish I could take all the credit for the physical changes that have occurred in her, but my role was only in making suggestions and offering guidance in lifestyle choices, and balancing her hormones. In truth, it was she who did all of the heavy lifting (both literally and figuratively) to get where she was at.
Now she may have assumed that this new attention was due to the physical changes of weight loss, toning, etc. But I think that it is much more than that.
What I see when I look at her is confidence. A confidence in knowing that she was able to make some very marked changes in diet and lifestyle, stick to them, and then see the results of her effort. A confidence that comes from sleeping well and feeling good. A confidence in knowing that although challenges in life are inevitable, she now has more physical and emotional reserve to meet them. She has changed in ways that neither of us could have anticipated.
I am also sure that her new-found smile did not hurt either.
