I'm channeling Miss P..........
« on: February 13, 2013, 06:24:20 PM »
No -- my hooves are just fine, but...............

I now have quadruple digits of T-Cells -- 1,086!!  Been hovering around 800 for a while.  No doubt, I shall return to that area, but for now, I shall celebrate.

Also -- for our Wumpette -- my Cholesterol results are impressive.

Total - 144
LDL - 75
HDL - 50
TRIG - 95

See what a good diet and the loss of 27 lbs can do!!


Hell - even my bili came within the reference range -- despite my Reyataz.

I love a good lab day.

Well, you have just barely made it to the Elite Commander Salamander Club. I'll hold off doling out your appropriate epaulets and assorted medallions once you've maintained 4-digit numbers for three consecutive readings. Now you need to get that % up above 40.

The first time I hit a 4-digit number it went back down and didn't return to consistent 4-digits until 18 months later. The whole time my % kept increasing by small margins and IMO that is what keeps the other number steady, and it was when it got to +40%.  Anyway, congrats!

And you lost 27 lbs? That's actually a more impressive feat. You've obviously not been hanging out with the Egyptian Taco Master.

Congrats! I'm very impressed. How do yo get such great Lipid readings, are you hard core with the diet? Are you on Chol. lowering meds?

27 pounds? that's a lot, keep up the good work.

anyways, way to go Grandma  ;)

If yall get medallions for stellar numbers, I should at least get something for losing half my CD4's in one swoop :P

Yes -- I have little doubt that my foray into 4-digits shan't go on for long, but I shall enjoy the ride while it's here. 
As for the weight loss -- I agree -- an impressive feat -- it's harder as we age to lose.  Plus, I hate to exercise -- aside from tennis, I do no exercise.  Fortunately, my nearly 49 yo joints still allow me to play singles and I am deceptively fast on the court -- opponents see this old, fat man and think all they need do is run me around.  I win more with my legs than with my strokes.  oh -- and I am so not a fan of Mexican food -- so no Egyptian fak-os for me.

Congrats! I'm very impressed. How do yo get such great Lipid readings, are you hard core with the diet? Are you on Chol. lowering meds?

Yes, dear -- been on statins since the early 90's.  The men in family have dropped from heart disease for generations.  My father was the first in 3 generations to make it to 50 -- he turned 71 this past Sunday.  He lost a brother to heart disease when he was in his early 40's.  My chol has been OK since the meds -- but these results are amongst the best.  Belly fat is NOT your friend.
My diet -- I have my moments with fried food -- but the biggest change has been snacking on fruit and low-fat microwave popcorn. 
I doubt I shall ever be "svelte", but clocking in at 184 is far better than the 211 I was in Oct -- or the 250 I hit back in 2000.  I hope to settle around 175 -- still, technically, overweight at 5'8", but more realistic than hitting the low 160's.

Hugs,
M
