6 months ago, went to doctor for a physical. LDL cholesterol was a bit high, wanted me to start taking a statin, I said no, let me work on it and I'll see you in 6 months.
Fast forward to today. Weight is down, blood pressure went from borderline to very good, LDL down some, now in the "high normal" range. All with no medication. My goal in the next 6 months is a little more weight loss, and to get that LDL even lower. The rest of my numbers were very good.
I see this as success! Yay ME!
