What a difference a year can make

This morning I had my health screening for Get Fit Wamego. I took my readings from last year with me to compare and see how much they've changed. Some are really dramatic. According to their scale I am now under 250 pounds.

Everything has gone down. The only negative is that my HDL, the good cholesterol, has gone down also. There are foods I can eat to get that number up while continuing to keep the bad cholesterol down. In addition to the weight loss, the most dramatic change are the triglyceride levels. Keeping that number down keeps the blood flowing through you without your arteries narrowing or hardening, i.e. really important.
