Me before: Taken in late January, 2011
|I was mostly happy, but overweight.|
My cholesterol levels were also far too high - dangerously.
|April 29th, 2011. I'm on the way to Nia dance class.|
Last October my Dr. had put me on medication for my high cholesterol levels as they had been continuing to creep upwards for a couple of years. The extremely good news is that now, my very high Triglyceride levels (275) have already gone down to 102!! Wow. I am so happy! The medicine is not something I will need to take forever, and especially with my weight down a bit more, I should be able to stop taking it.
I am grateful and happy and plan to lose another 15-20 lbs. I wanted to document this journey and I will come back in a couple of months to update you. My next appointment with Dr. Pursar is in July and I cannot wait for her to see the numbers on the scale!! We will probably talk about discontinuing the high cholesterol medicine at that time and I can thank her for giving me the guidance I needed to feel better, look better and be healthier! I'm wondering if you you have a similar story??? Stay well. I will be back soon with some art journaling I just did!
