This whiny baby needs Cheeriment

I Really Really need some "Cheeriment" (The word you get when your 4 year old mixes up encouragement and cheering up).
I got really upset and discouraged and weepy yesterday after the nurse from the Dr's office called. The thing is I didn't expect much from my blood work because everything I read said that when you lose weight quickly it raises your cholesterol (all that fat being released into the bloodstream). So I expected everything to go up. But it didn't. My Cholesterol went down my LDL's (Bad) went down 23 points, great right? Except my HDL(good) which is already way too low, went down! You know how you raise HDL? Exercise, weight loss, better diet....
Plus, my liver function test results were "elevated", which the nurse made sound like no big deal, just "we'll retest it next visit", but then this morning there is a brand new "condition" listed on my patient record, that condition basically meaning the precursor to clogged arteries and bypass surgeries.
I feel like all my hard work is for nothing, it seems so frustrating and pointless.
