Default NSVs

Today I got the results of a series of blood testing that was done a couple weeks ago at a health fair. It reminds me of why I started on a weight loss journey.

I started about a year and a half ago, at 230 pounds and with prediabetic blood sugar levels. Today I'm at 187 pounds and, according to the A1C testing, no longer registering at prediabetic.

I had blood drawn for a series of tests, including blood glucose levels, thyroid function, vitamin D deficiencies, and various other things including cholesterol, bone health, kidney functions, adrenal etc etc.

Almost every single test result came back right in the middle of the "normal" range! There were two results testing high and termed "infection" which makes sense because at the time I was recovering from ear and sinus infections. One also tested high and read "indicates allergies" or something like that, and I already know I'm allergic/sensitive to many things.

So I think it's an NSV that I'm at the lowest weight in my adult age 35...and ZERO abnormalities in the testing! On a side note, I've also never broken any bones in my body, nor needed stitches for anything. Last year I also tested as "extremely low risk" of osteoporosis. Apparently I have super-healthy bones.
