Update From Me!

But the thing I'm most excited about is that I'm back into my Size 8 pants. I tried on all of my Size 8 shorts and they all fit comfortably. No bulging or having a hard time fitting. Size 6, here I come!
We'll be doing Day 60 photos and measurements in a few days, and I'll post a layout then. I just haven't had time to do anything with the Day 30 stuff. Too many other things at the top of the to-do list.
Oh, another absolutely cool, wonderful thing. DH has been struggling with his cholesterol for a couple of years now. His numbers were horrific. 1200 for triglycerides and 300 something for cholesterol. Anyway, he went in for his annual physical last week with the complete blood work-up, and his triglycerides were down to 109 and his cholesterol was 178! Isn't that absolutely astounding! That was after only 40 some days of eating clean and exercising! Who needs meds! BAH! Just eat right and exercise!
Anyway, time for dinner!

Okay, off my soapbox....hmmm...maybe I need to visit the orange grove!
Please, don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I have the Clean Eating diet book and the Clean Eating Cookbook, and just got the Clean Eating Cookbook for family and kids. If I don't know the answer, I'm sure I can find it in one of those.

Well, whatever, you "done good!" And, a 27 mile bike ride on your rest day...next thing we know, you'll be running marathons!

The original triglyceride reading wasn't after a fast. They always say he can't eat in the morning until after his blood has been drawn, but I don't think it was anything beyond that.
Mike has been having trouble with his cholesterol for a number of years now. He was on cholesterol medicine for a while, but it just didn't do anything. We expected some sort of decrease from the change in diet and exercise, but not those kinds of dramatic results. We are both thrilled...and his mother is, too!
