It was time for the 6 month cholesterol check and yesterday the results were back and I visited the doctor. My cholesterol level is down to 3.2 and the doctor stated that it can't get much better than that. This is a very pleasing result. Blood pressure is really good, prostate level good and according to the doctors scales I am down to 74 kilos.
Now I am not going to claim that I have reached my goal of being under 75 kilos just yet. The images I show here are my home scales and that is what I used when posting to this blog. Until my home scales show my weight under 75, and I can post an image to prove it, I won't break out the champagne and order the fireworks yet.
One thing of interest was my doctor told me that I had lost enough weight and now just to maintain it for the rest of my life. I was going to reset a goal so that I would go down to 70 kilos. I will have to rethink that and perhaps aim for maintaining my weight around the 73 kilo mark.
Whatever weight I choose to maintain, the process will be fairly easy now after learning how to eat to lose weight. It has been a lesson in eating portion controlled meals, counting calories and cutting out fatty foods such as chocolates and chips, especially those potato chips that are not just full of fat, have a huge salt content as well.
Hopefully my next post will have all the bells clanging and fireworks to celebrate the major goal of officially being under 75 kilos. When ever it does officially happen, one thing remains and that is the fact that losing weight has increased my ability to live life to the max.
