Yay, I'm so happy today. We had wellness screenings at work last week and I just got my results back today. All my numbers were excellent. Good for glucose, HDL and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. As well as weight, BMI, % Body Fat, and blood pressure. I have been blessed that I've always been healthy for glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure. A few years ago was my wake-up call when my weight and BMI were at the top of the range for being overweight and I was afraid that my overall health would go downhill and that's when I started working on getting healthier. With that being said, I'm glad to have my weight and body fat back into the healthy range and that I'm maintaining my overall health as I get older. I may not have the major victory for those who've been in the danger zones and through hard work, dedication, exercise and healthy eating have transitioned to a normal zone, but I'm happy that I understand the dangers of being unhealthy and did something before it became a problem. And a lot of it is thanks to all those out there that truly amaze me with their major transformations, whether they've succeeded in reaching their goals or still working to get there. I am blessed with my own health and I'm happy to continue rooting for those working on their own goals. Thank you SparkPeople and to all my sparkie friends! You guys are the best!
