I received a letter in the mail last week that I'm seriously considering framing and hanging on my wall.
A couple of weeks ago, I went in for my first round of blood tests following my first diagnosis of being "borderline pre-diabetic." I'd been on some medicine for about two months, had been working out for about three, so it was time for a check-up.
The letter held all of my results, and I'm delighted, happy, excited, estatic, thrilled and jumping for joy to say: I passed with flying colors!
Sugar, cholesterol, and other things that I don't understand – all good!
The only problem area is my "good" cholesterol, but my doctor gave me tips to raise that number.
But the biggies – sugar and "bad" cholesterol – were good.
This makes me happy.
This makes all of the sweat, blisters, tired muscles, salads and saying, "no, I can't have that" worth it!
Also: I've lost 31 pounds, and at 37 pounds I'll have reached exactly half of my weight loss goal.
