Monday, January 28, 2013 marks Truthology’s first half birthday! With nearly 6500 views over the past 6 months, Truthology continues to grow and evolve. Thank you very much for joining me on this journey!
During this half birthday celebration, I would like to make an important announcement pertaining to my own personal health. As many of you are aware, I started this blog after losing 60 pounds (going from 250 to 190), nearly 25% of my body weight. While I have loosened the screws somewhat recently (i.e. a little extra guac on my burrito, indulging in a few IPAs during NFL games, snacking on dark chocolate before bed, etc)…and I absolutely HAVE gained back a few pounds as a result (currently at 198-200), my overall health remains unchanged.
I just received my blood test results in the mail yesterday and I am very pleased to report that the elimination of saturated fats, highly processed foods and artificial ingredients from my diet have sustained my low cholesterol levels (total cholesterol was 124 mg/dL, “bad cholesterol” LDL was 76 mg/dL), blood sugar levels (glucose was 93 mg/dL) – plus my blood pressure is at optimal levels, I no longer suffer from acid reflux, no longer need to wear a CPAP “mask” for sleep apnea, this list goes on and on and on.
If you are the least bit interested in losing weight, improving your health or just living a better and longer life, please reach out and share your experiences with me. I look forward to connecting with you!
