Its official...my cholesterol issues are genetic :-(
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
Dang it!!!! I have been an absolute angel the past few months with my eating and getting my fitness done and logged. I had a fasting blood draw last week for today's doctor's appointment. Well, after pleading with my doctor to go off my cholesterol meds and being good as gold, my numbers were UP. So, I will be placed back on to cholesterol meds. The good news is my blood pressure was AWESOME and I can stay off those meds AND my anxiety is under control so I am not taking those.
Because I have reached the wonderful age of 50 I get to have a colonoscopy but I don't dread it at all. I am thinking of it as a great opportunity to drop another pound or two with all the prep that needs to be done for it.
I had the other tests a good girl should have and it feels wonderful to be proactive like this. My gameplan is to be everything my mom wasn't with my health. To all of my female Spark Friends...PLEASE remember to have your mammograms done...PLEASE. It does no good to ignore this very very easy test and it pays dividends to have it done.
I feel better and better every passing day and I thank the good Lord for SparkPeople!
