Update: I had to re-lose about 15 pounds I gained back in 2011 due to medical problems. Am now happy with my weight and physical condition and in maintenance mode rather than trying to lose.
Previously I'd lost 90 pounds in 18 months once I figured out what works for me, which is to focus on good nutrition and get plenty of exercise.
**** BTW: I'm not looking for dates so don't waste your time "friending" me for that purpose ;-)
Why I want to get in shape
Heath, sanity, and vanity.
Annual physical results:
Total VLDL = 12 (goal <30) ~~~~
Total HDL = 69 (goal >40) ~~~~
Non HDL = 90 (goal <160) ~~~~
Triglycerides = 41 (goal <150) ~~~~
Total Chol = 160 (goal <200) ~~~~
***Big Win*** Lp(a) cholesterol (goal <10) dropped from 11 to 6, which is phenomenal because it's widely considered to be genetic and hard to change with diet/exercise. However, some research indicates L-Lysine may decrease Lp(a) cholesterol, and I have been taking that supplement since last spring.
Myeloperoxidase level dropped from 343 to 280 (goal is <480), indicating significant decrease of inflammation in vascular system, even though it wasn't even high last year. More proof that anti-inflammatory diet WORKS.
BP @ annual physical was 106/73 with heart rate of 48 bpm. I am one healthy 50 year old =)
