Feeling good this morning as I lost another 1/2kg last week, so I'm down to 63.5kg, and it hasn't found me again :). Lost a few centimetres off various places though the "bingo arms" are proving difficult to give away :(. I've started weights in an effort to at least tone the muscles up if not encourage the fat deposits to retire.
Doctor's consultation last Thursday and I've lowered the LDL's back to 3.3 - down half a point, the triglycerides are now 0.8 (yay, they are under 1.0 so below half!), the VLDL's down another 0.1 to 0.4 ....these are the really nasty ones... and my HDL is up another 0.1 to 1.5 - bloody brilliant!
My cute doc has said that even though he has raised my heart meds by 50% - my damn bp won't drop below 150/90 - he thinks he can trust me enough, after the effort I put in to lower my cholesterol without medication, to not see me until the beginning of November.....BUT I MUST CONTINUE TO TAKE MY MEDS AS PRESCRIBED. Lol, he doesn't totally trust me not to go a la natural again and shoot my readings through the roof!
As I've acquired a mentor, who's already had a couple of heart attacks, I'm being gently reminded to be a "good girl" and take ALL my meds every day :).
My middle section is flattening out again so I'm going to be in a bikini by December *big silly grin*.
Hope everyone is feeling healthy!
