I went to the DR this week and got my test results today. I was disappointed in myself when I got them.
I’ve got some work to do….
|Component||Your Value||Standard Range||Units|
|TRIGLYCERIDE||249||35 – 160||mg/dL|
|Optimal testing for triglycerides should be performed following a 12 to 14 hour fast.|
|LDL||128||0 – 130||mg/dL|
|CHOL/HDL RATIO||6.6||1.9 – 4.2|
|LDL/HDL RATIO||4.0||1.0 – 4.0|
So, I need to lower my triglycerides and bad cholesterol and raise my good cholesterol. I was really upset when I got the results. I literally sat and cried at my desk for a good half hour. My friend Lauren talked to me and helped me calm down.
After work I went and joined a gym, Planet Fitness. I’m going to be successful! I am going to go to the gym every day and I’m going to make a change. I can do this. I have 2 months before I need to go get lab work done again. 2 months to make a change for the better healthier life I want.
