Got an F on my report card.

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Well, I mean what I say & say what I mean!

I'm tired people! Know those times when the World comes crashing down, & around every corner is a new obstacle. (Oh, it so sucks that I am hearing a commercial about Viagra right freakin' this second) I am no quitter. Nor, will I ever be. My report card said my Cholesterol is bad. Here are the particular (It is thundering here)

My Cholesterol was not so good.

Cholesterol-209 (should be under 200) Boooo!!!!

Triglycerides-96 (under 150)Low carb helped.

Hdl - (Good cholesterol) 99-Excellent! Should be 30-85. That is due to all the good exercise.

Ldl- (bad cholesterol) 101 should be under 100.

I'll give it a Month of really behaving & re-check it. I had to double my blood pressure med too.

Leave it to me. I do everything bass ackwards. Lose 34-35 pounds & gain high Cholesterol, high blood pressure. Ya know I have not had my Blood tested in about 4 years. I have bad veins but my Phlebotomist was excellent. So, maybe it was far worse a year ago. Probably. Sorry not so active on the boards.

A WISE Belly dancer once told me that "This is play time" (talking of Spark)

The positives?? I get my Digital Slr (that cost more than my T.V.) around 2/14. I need to let go of the guilt that goes with me spending money on myself. I will : ) Shout outs to Carly! I am a terrible friend. Sorry : (

    Wow, congrats on the weight loss! Garlic tablets help with cholesterol. And your numbers aren't too bad, I'd just watch what you eat, and check the cholesterol content and you should be able to get it down quickly. Also oatmeal! Do you ever see the Quaker Oatmeal commercials for cholesterol?!
    Best of luck!

    I actually had the same thing happen to me. I lost 20 pounds and my cholesterol went up 20. But, looking at those numbers you're not doing too bad. Still needs improvement, but I wish mine were so close!

    Keep up the great work!

    Hey, your numbers are only a little bit off!!! They're not that bad, really!

    You need to:

    a) stop stressing!!! That'll only send your BP up! :-P

    b) take fish oil (unless one of your doc's has said not to - and I don't know why they would - it's one of the best and NATURAL ways to improve both cholesterol and BP levels!!!)

    c) learn how to meditate!!! Use that as a way to deeply connect with your physical being. Listen to your heart beat. Feel your pulse within you. It doesn't take long, but I think it would really help you!!!

    d) take VERY good care of our VERY good friend Jane!!!! Otherwise, we may have to come and smack you! lol

    We love you, Jane!!!! :-D

    My veins roll something awful. The nurses say that as soon as my veins see the needle, they hide. I don't blame them one bit...but being poked over 5 times is no fun..unless it's by hubby! lol then it's fun. *evil grin* Cut yourself some slack. We are our worst crtics! Muah*~hugs from the Dark

    Ease up Sis - letting go of some of that guilt and worry will be good for you. More play time - that's what we need!

    Sorry your report card wasn't so good - but it's not as bad as I'd feared from your earlier posts. The numbers aren't so far off that they're catastrophic. Definitely not the direction you'd think they'd go with the weight loss - but definitely conquerable. Get your chin back up!

    Love ya!
