One of my main reasons for embarking on this crazy OptiFast journey was not just to lose weight. My blood numbers (cholesterol, triglycerides, A1C, etc) were horrific.
As of August 18, 2013, my total cholesterol was 266, Triglycerides were over 300, and my A1C was 6.1% (this is a measure of Type 2 Diabetes risk.)
As of October 24, 2013, just 5 weeks after starting my Optifast program, my total cholesterol is 216, triglycerides were down to 220, and my A1C is down to 5.8.
While yes, the weight loss is super nice, I’m honestly thrilled about these numbers going down. This is only ONE month in, and I’m already seeing blood work results. I can’t even imagine how much they’ll go down by December or January!!
And with that, I’m off to bed. It’s way past my bedtime…
