Day 217: Dr's appt this morning
Thursday, August 04, 2016
I'm happy to say that my dr's appt went well. My lab values all were good and I get to stop taking Vitamin D (which was very low last time, but is normal now.) I had been a little bit worried about my blood sugar levels because they were slightly high last time, but they are normal now and so is my Hemoglobin A1C. My cholesterol level was good last time and it's even lower this time. Same with my LDL. Triclycerides are fine, but near the top of normal, so as I lose more weight, those should continue to drop. Blood pressure 130/80, pulse 59, Pulse oximeter 98%. The doctor was very impressed with the amount of weight that I've lost and how well I'm doing keeping my diet in check (as evidenced by my lab values.)
Yes, all of this time and effort is worth it! It means I'm healthier and more active. Easier to keep up with the grand kids!
