Got a great phone call a little while ago. My latest blood work was EXCELLENT!
Total Cholesterol: 248 (not too hot) but......
HDL (Good Cholesterol): 152 "Great" (optimal HDL more than 60)
LDL (Bad Cholesterol): 81 "Great" (optimal LDL less than 100)
Triglycerides: 73 "WOWIE ZOWIE!" (optimal Triglycerides less than 150)
That's down from a whopping 331 a few months ago!
I am absolutely giddy, guys!
The nurse said, "Wow... you really HAVE been busting your ass, Nan!"
So, the 3 months of not smoking, walking 1.5 miles 5 days a week, working out at the condo, and going heavy on the Omega 3 through diet and fish oil worked!
I'm going to celebrate tonite with a BIG ASS CHEESEBURGER!!!!!!!!!!!!! (no bun!)
