HOO RAH!!!

This is really good news. Aint nothing like good numbers. I have had the same experiences and it really feel good not only to have good numbers but just knowing that one has taken control of life is priceless.

The change in lifestyle that we have been working on for the past 9 1/2 months is having a positive effect in many ways. Along with losing nearly 50 pounds and now being at a healthy BMI, the blood test showed that I had a great blood cholesterol result, all without needing to take medication.

My cholesterol has generally been good, but unfortunately for as long as I can remember, I have struggled to attain a good HDL reading. For some reason, darn genetics, low HDL has been a problem. For the first time ever, my HDL was not only in the good range, my LDL dropped below 100 and the HDL:LDL ratio is at a very good point.

As my doctor put it, apparently my body likes the fact that I have lost the weight that I have and is rewarding me with an increase in the HDL and lowering the LDL.

Here is the best part, rather than driving 3.5 miles to the doctors office on an absolutely beautiful late June day, I rode my bike and then proceeded to ride to the library to drop something off before returning home.
