I thought I’d finally tell you the  results of the BIA I had last month. You’ve waited long enough. I know You could hardly wait. It’s ok. You can exhale now.

All kidding aside… the results overall were good. I’m in a healthy range on all the measurements. My weight which is perfectly fine for my height is about 10 pounds higher than I’m used to. I’m trying not to care about that. The one thing I am slightly worried about is my bone density. While in the normal range, my bone density is on the lower side of normal. The dietitian explained to me that you stop growing your bones at age 15 and after that it’s all about maintenance. I prefer not to take supplements but rather get my vitamins and minerals from my food.

I’d love to hear how you ensure you are getting enough calcium and vitamin d.
