Another Numbers Update

I had another blood test done last week. Let's compare the results from Feb, to June, to Sept:

Feb 20, 2010:
Weight: 221 lb
 ldl (good) cholesterol: 10
hdl (bad)Cholesterol: 48
Total: 211
Ratio: 4.39:1
Triglicerides: 311
 Blood Pressure: 120/80

Jun 9, 2010: Weight: 189 lb
 ldl (good) cholesterol: 41
hdl (bad) cholesterol: 60
Total: 132
Ratio: 2.2:1
Triglicerides: 157
 Blood Pressure: 118/80





Sep 10, 2010: Weight: 179 lb
ldl (good) cholesterol: 39
hdl (bad) cholesterol: 61
Total: 122
Ratio: 1.564
Triglicerides: 107
 Blood Pressure: 118/80

Results:
I lost 42 lbs in that time span, 10 more since June.
Total Cholesterol lowered by another 10 points.
Triglycerides reduced by nearly 2/3, 42 points below boundary for normal.


Yay! I just have to keep my eye on the hdl; recommended upper level is 59.


Even more encouraging, was that yesterday i did 3 miles around the marina @ 9:17 avg, and it felt great!
