My Husband's Fantastic Health Check-up
 
DH joined me in the JUDDD way of life about the 3rd week in March.
Although his all-time weight was 350 about a year ago, when he started JUDD in March he weighed 322.

It was about a year ago that he was diagnosed with Diabetes. His A1c levels were high and so were his blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

He went to the doctor Monday and I am thrilled to report [drum roll please!] that:

He now weighs 281! His glucose was 97. His A1c hemoglobin levels [diabetic markers] were 5.6, which is in the normal, non-diabetic range. His cholesterol and BP readings are also down.

Yippee! :jumpjoy: I am so proud of him!

He deserves a lot of credit for a great 3.5 (?) or 4 months of health improvement. I have some family members who are working to get A1C down below 6.0, so we know 5.6 is a happy number.
