Wow great work!!! You've had a good weight loss too. And look what it did for all the other numbers.

What is A1C? What are normal triglyserides? (Can't you tell it's been awile since I had a physical!)

Sandi, A1C has to do with blood sugar. It measures your average blood sugar over about a 3 month span.

Per my last visit, over a year ago, their measurements for cholesterol were as follows:

Under 200 for the total was good.
Under 59 for HDL was good.
Under 150 for Triglycerides was good.

I hope that's right. At the time mine were all within normal limits...

WooHoo! That's great!

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.
