What a Difference a Year Makes (bragging to follow)

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Yesterday I went for my annual physical. I knew with my weight loss I would see some better numbers with my cholesterol, which is a bit of a concern to me given my family's history with heart disease. Long story short, the doc was very pleased with my weight loss and I got to Spread the Spark by telling her about this site. She's going to start sharing it with patients!!

Anyhoo, here goes the bragging...

2010 - 2011
Weight 175 - 136
Blood Pressure 128/76 - 112/76
Total Cholesterol 242 - 211
LDL 165 - 140
HDL 42 - 54
Triglycerides 173 - 85
Thyroid 1.99 - 1.4

My total cholesterol & LDL are still too high generally, but what a drop. This is what living a healthy lifestyle for only one year can do. Just think how much better it's going to get the longer I do this!

    Now THESE are the measures I value more than weight or BMI...labs, blood pressure, etc. In fact, my labs last year really inspired me to improve my health; they were the best I'd ever had and I wanted them to be even better. emoticon
