So after a year of wellness program, what result?

Have now been in my wellness program approximately one year, so we did an assessment. The results:

I have lost about 50 lbs, putting me at my lowest weight in about 10 years.

My cholesterol has dropped from 'you have some red blood cells in your lipid stream' to normal. (My triglyceride count was less than 50% of the reading a year ago.)

My good cholesterol jumped to its highest ever, from 32 to 47.

My blood sugar went from 'schweeeeet' to 101.

More importantly, my A1C went from 6.0 (pre-diabetic) to 5.4 (well within normal range).

My liver function, which was getting seriously out of whack, has all normalized.

My blood pressure went from 'Your heart is about to explode despite taking enough Exforge to drop an elephant' to 120/80.
