Cholesterol and update

I got great news today....my cholesterol level went down from 223 to 207....whewwwww....that is a huge load off of my mind. My doc says I need to lose another 8 points to be under the required 199 to be healthy. This only shows that eating healthy and exercising does make a difference.

I know I was suppose to update the site with my measurements (See D-day post) but my trainer's Mom is in the hospital so I have not been able to meet with her this week so as soon as we get back on track I will keep you posted on what is to come.

Again, I want to thank everyone for all of your kind and encouraging words they are keeping me focused!!!!

Congratulations! It's amazing that a relatively small weight loss can have such a big impact on your cholesterol level. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for commenting on my post on BlogHer. I'm so proud of you, that is awesome. I'm so glad you are looking at internal AND external changes, not just the number on the scale. Those little numbers the doctor provides do make a difference. Keep up the good work-Don't ever give up!

I've enjoyed reading your posts. I began my weight loss journey in October of 2007. I've lost 30 pounds. I have another 5 of so to go. Not sure they'll come off LOL, I've been waiting for them to come off for 2 months now. It's amazing what exercise and a change in eating habits can do.
