Bonus benefits of Sparking
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
At my job, as part of a wellness program, we get a check-up every 6 months. My numbers were so good, the nurse asked me what I was doing. She knew about SparkPeople and applauded my consistent efforts. Sure I was glad that my weight was down 6 lbs. from my last visit (what she didn't know was that I'd actually gained 10 more last summer), but the bonus benefit of all these exercise challenges and food tracking were my other heart-health numbers.
Cholesterol 197 (Good HDL 96 !!!)
Body Fat 33%
Oxygen Uptake 40 (an indicator of fitness--off the charts for my age group)
You will hear no more complaining from me about the slow weight loss.
