I went to the DR this week and got my test results today. I was disappointed in myself when I got them.
Iíve got some work to doÖ.
Cholesterol my numbers: 210 (should be less than 200)
Triglycerides my number: 249 (should be between 35 and 160 - I'm on medicine for this but I haven't been taking it religiously taking it)
HDL Cholesterol (good cholesterol) my number: 32 (should be higher than 35)
LDL (Bad cholesterol) my number: 128 (should be 130 or less)
So, I need to lower my triglycerides and bad cholesterol and raise my good cholesterol. I was really upset when I got the results. I literally sat and cried at my desk for a good half hour. My friend Lauren talked to me and helped me calm down.
After work I went and joined a gym, Planet Fitness. Iím going to be successful! I am going to go to the gym every day and Iím going to make a change. I can do this. I have 2 months before I need to go get lab work done again. 2 months to make a change for the better healthier life I want.
