Clean Bill of Health!

I had my annual physical the other week, Dr. Laurie was thrilled with my progress. I had blood drawn and just called the phone system to listen to the results.

Although my total cholesterol was good last year, my ratio wasn't as good as it could be. What a different a year makes! Not only did my lipid panel come back "excellent," my ratio is much better, I got my LDL down and my HDL up with textbook triglycerides. I just know that it's the consistent exercise that has helped me reach my goal.

I know the path I've chosen is very good for my health, but to see those numbers in black and white is so very satisfying.

Have you had your annual wellness exam this year?
