Well, just got the results of my lab work back from my doctor's office. Mostly good news, some not so much.
I'm about 10 pounds overweight (surprising, I would've said 20), my cholesterol is not good. Triglicerides are not good. Blood pressure is amazingly bad. Everything else was good to great. Soooooo, welcome to the new regime.
First, I start taking blood pressure medicine. Second, cholesterol medication. Third, change of diet. Fourth, more exercise. Joy.
My new diet, btw, is to cut down on carbs. Apparently they want me to focus on whole grains and meat. OK, no more potatoes, sugar, or (*sob*) bread (well, white bread anyway). Oh, and alcohol. I have to give up (mostly) alcohol - like beer. Ouch. I've been told the glass of wine I have before bed is ok.
Pardon me while I go sit in the corner and cry.
