When I started walking my weight was at it's highest of 163. This was a lot for me since I am only 5'5. When I got super serious about my weight mid-August (so about a year ago) my weight was going between 147-149.
To show a difference. This first picture was 160. It was around a month after I started working on getting healthy. The second one was taken today right after my workout (if that wasn't noticeable)
I wish I had the exact numbers from blood profile that was done a little over a year ago but I haven't actually got around to calling the doctor yet to request them fax me a copy. I am curious though so I will probably end up doing that in the next couple of days. I seriously owe these numbers to Shakeology and working out. My first round of blood work that was bad last year I had been working out for awhile already. So I really believe that the combination of my workouts and getting the amazing nutrition that Shakeology has to offer has helped me tremendously.
Anyway, here are just a few of the numbers from my blood work. These are the things that I like keeping in check.
(level needs to be between 0-149)
(level needs to be between 35-155)
Total Cholesterol: 121
(needs to be between 100-199)
HDL Cholesterol: 58
(needs to be between 39.01-100)
LDL Cholesterol: 52
(needs to be between 0-99)
(needs to be between 65-99)
(needs to be between 3.5-5.2)
This is me in all my glory to show what a difference a healthy diet and exercise can make in roughly a year. When the first picture was taken I was around 148-149. Like I said I originally started this journey at 163. The first picture was me in July 2012 and the second one was actually taken today.
Am I proud of how far I have came in a year? You better believe it! I still have a ways to go in order to reach my ultimate goals, but I just keep looking forward. Sure I have bad days, don't we all? No need in dwelling on those, just pick up the next day where you left off. Hard work and determination does pay off!
