In better news, I have the results from my health screening. So here's the breakdown, the first number is the current stat and the second number is what I had last year. (Weight loss is a bit different than my "official" blog numbers because my scale at home reads a bit less and I figure my weight loss on my high of 303 in June):
- Weight: 263~296 (-33 pounds)
- Cholesterol: 171~209 (-38 mg/dL)
- Blood Pressure: 102/72~120/90
- BMI: 42~47 (-5 units)
All in all, good numbers and definite improvements from a year ago. The only thing that didn't improve was my good cholesterol or HDL. Last year it was 39, this year it was 28. So my good cholesterol actually went down. Ideally it should be 50 or greater. Exercise should help bring that number up. So I still have some work to do. But so encouraging to see the improvements on paper.
