So, I go to see the doctor (oncologist) who is very excited about my latest blood tests and not because it looks like he will get to make more money off me. He is excited because everything looks very, very normal. He is very excited until he gets down to my weight.
"The most common factor for the recurrence of colorectal cancer and breast cancer is," he says, "fat."
I kind of knew that and I kind of knew that I have been putting on some serious weight lately (the pants and the underwear don't lie).
"I want you to come to my office once a week and get weighed."
I'll do it as long as each time I step on the scale I don't have to cough up a co-pay.
