Physical Check Up Day Today!

Eight months ago I went on this WOE because my blood tests stunk!
Cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, were up and Triglycerides were out the roof. Only thing low was the good (HDL) Cholesterol. I was on the road to diabetes.
Today was a different story, just as I expected it to be. Total Cholesterol was down 10 points while the good (HDL) was up 10 points!
Blood glucose level was down about 15 points and was back into the normal range.
Blood pressure had also returned to normal range, but thr best thing of all was my Triglycerides which had dropped from about 240 to 68!
This is why I went on this journey and today the results showed. Of course it was no real suprise since I feel so much better, and have lost a bunch of useless fat, but it was still nice to see it written down on an "official" report!
One LC Day at a time.
First LC 1964.
Restart 12/31/2013

Absolutely fantastic!! Well done, I bet you are so pleased.

It is great to look in the mirror and know that you feel and look better, but to actually see those numbers and know just how much this WOE has benefitted you internally is just awesome.
