My Total Cholesterol is up to 253, from 198 last year. In fact, I this is the highest it has been since I started keeping track in 2008.
My Triglycerides are up to 303, up from 179 last year. I nearly broke the record of 308 set in 2008.
Finally my A1C continues to climb from 5.8% in 2018, to 6.0% in 2019, to 6.1% in 2020. If I do not get off of this train, I will cross from pre-diabetic (5.7% to 6.5%) to diabetic (6.5% or higher).
Given my family history of heart disease and diabetes, I am truly at an inflection point.
Today was my first day of eating healthier. I had breakfast, an apple for snack and dinner and have avoiding sugary snacks between meals. Typically, I would have Clif bars, granola bars, Larabars, chips and pretzels throughout the day. In the near term, I want to eliminate sugar (except for fruit) and snacking between meals. To monitor my progress, I will track my weight which was 197.5# on 05.26.2020.
The next step will be tracking macros in my fitness pal.
