Changes beyond the scale

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I just got my blood work from my 3 month post-surgical visit. At the visit I saw that I've lost 36 pounds and my blood pressure which had been 140/80 is now 100/70. Now I see that my cholesterol went from 245 to 176.

I am amazed to see this much change already. I have a ways to get to my goal and I've been frustrated when the scale doesn't seem to move but now I have proof that good things are happening even when I can't see them

    emoticon How wonderful to be celebrating your five year Sparkversary. Keep going. emoticon

Do watch the YOUTUBE series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. whose book "FAT CHANCE" comes out in December. It is so helpful.

I'm reading Richard Johnson M.D.'s book "THE SUGAR FIX" and have learned so much about Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. He has a wonderful lecture on Youtube.
