I'm SO PROUD Of ME!

So, you know, I just turned the big 55.

You know, the age where you get belly fat and have to have your cholesterol checked.

Last year at my check-up, it was 200.

Not good.

Especially since I already try to eat healthy

and exercise.

Fast forward to this year.

I do NOT want to have to go on medicine.

Went to doc.

Had blood work done.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

The only thing I have done different in the past year, was a weight-lifting program.

A friend and I lift weights a couple of days a week, along with our regular workouts!

Cholesterol:

160.

BAM!

Proud of ME!

Yeah - that is great! I agree....don't want meds for cholesterol. Will have to add weights to my tennis/running/walkiner to see if that helps too.

You are very lucky. I tried to make changes and it didn't matter...Dr. said it's in my genes and there's not much I can do about it. But taking a little pill is better than dying early!!!
