WHOOP! What the heck, WHOOP again! (I'm a Texas A&M grad, we say that)

This happened yesterday, but I've been really busy and haven't had time to post. My cardiologist had me go in for a blood draw to see where I'm at with all of the potential nasties that can cause a dude with heart disease to have issues....

Drumroll should be inserted here!

Triglycerides, down from 434 to 109!
Total cholesterol, NORMAL range for the "normal" person. I'm far from normal!
Good cholesterol, 2 points up and within the good range!
A1c levels, mid range on the good chart! NOT pre-diabetic! The good Dr is AMAZED at that!
Everything else he tested for is A OK!

It gets better, 6 pills a day, now down to 3, keep going with the weight loss, and the MAIN thing I wanted to hear was, "if you keep going like this, I don't want to see you for a year."

Yeah man, I'm as giddy as one can get!

I'm 50# down, and have at least 40 to go, but the heart doc doesn't want to see me for a year? That's just sweet news to me! I was also given the go ahead to do ANY type of exercise I want to! He only requests that I keep sending weekly reports to his office for review! Ha, EASY!

Perfect NSV for me this week!

I want to thank ALL of my FS friends that have provided support, a$$ chewings, and guidance thus far in my endeavor to lose weight... This place has truly helped to keep me on track and plugging along in this journey! You folks ROCK!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend and keeps on plugging along in the marathon we've chosen to take on!
