I had my 6 monthly visit with the Dr last night to view results of my latest blood test.
I was a little disappointed with my weight not dropping further, but all my results came back within limits. For the last two years I was there my cholesterol was outside normal limits. He even has taken me off my medication.
Blood pressure was better, so this last 6 months has really made a difference and its good to see the changes in real numbers.
I have only just started, and have a long way to go, but its good to receive encouragement like that along the way.
That's great news, congratulations on getting off the cholesterol dope! So I'm curious, after ~11 years of being on statins (cholesterol dope) I finally got off them. I immediately, like within 2 weeks, noticed a measurable difference in my cycling and running fitness/speed. I also noticed my battle with leg muscle cramps was over.
I know the statin I was on gave me achy joints so I should feel a lot better. The other good thing which I am not sure is due to my cycling or my environment is I have only used my enhaler 10 times this year. I used to be at least once a day but I have found I really don't need to take it.
I have cycled around 2000 miles in the last 7 months and with warmer weather that should improve to.
I am not in the medial field, but I do think that when you become fit, the need for medication tends to reduce, this includes your inhaler. Your lungs are getting good exercise when you are riding, so I would expect a direct correlation... although if your environment is better, that could be a factor as well.
