Default Got my labs back today

and since I"ve lost weight they have ALL come back PERFECT. (except one. I have a b 12 deficiency, this test was even taken before I became vegetarian! So I have to take b12 pills now)

but my sugar, which used to be high is now "right within' range' she said.

my a1c was 5.1 I think? Or 5, something like that.

and my cholesterol is 'normal' though she didn't tell me what the number was.

I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's awesome Lottie. It's so great when besides looking good, we see some real health results. I'm currently trying to kick my "on the high side" blood pressure in the butt.

Good for you.

Good work, Lottie!

You know, when I saw your title I thought you were getting your dogs back from the kennel! I need a life that doesn't involve canines!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Did the doc prescribe you B12 pills or just say take them? I know a lot of people have had more luck with sublingual drops than B12 pills. Some people just don't absorb B12 very well and others do fine, regardless of their diet.

Also, you could look into using nutritional yeast for B vitamins (including B12). I use it sometimes.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

Congratulations! It's amazing what a difference the weight loss can make.

And...my first thought went to you picking up dogs too . What can I say, I'm an animal person.

Yeah! I just had a bunch of tests done. I was pretty relieved to know that my results were all good.

I wanted to comment that I use nutritional yeast flakes to get more b12 to my daughters, who are vegetarian. I try to add it wherever I can.

Congrats Lottie!!!!

I have to return for some follow up tests in a couple of months and I'm hoping to see some 'normal' results or a least better results than I had this summer.

Good Work! Keep up the good job!!
