How much do you love your heart?

This paragraph from an SP article was an eye opener for me.
“Triglycerides and Your Health: Lose weight if you are overweight. Since your body releases triglycerides into the bloodstream from your stored fat, the less fat you have available, the lower your triglycerides will be. You don't have to lose a lot of weight to see a benefit either. Losing just 7-10% of your body weight (just 14-20 pounds for a 200-pound person) can make a difference in your triglycerides—and for your heart!”
When I Started SP a year ago I was 206 Lbs. Today I’m 172 Lbs. that amounts to about a 17% drop in rubbish. Until I came across that paragraph I had never figured that my “STORED” fat was concealing the main enemy of my heart.
Probably like many, I knew being overweight was not too beneficial; but WOW, I never looked at triglycerides in this fashion. Henceforth I will ever look at fat in a different manner.
Like a thief in the night that waits your arrival – so are triglycerides hiding in our fat. I now feel good about clearing out the rubbish that concealed the enemy of my heart. May God bless your health progress, Earl
