MyHealthScore Update

This was Monday’s post but it was being obstinant.

Alrighty, yesterday I let them poke and prod me at Life Time to determine myhealthscore. What they discovered was not that surprising but all together interesting.

My score was 60 out of 100 and about where I thought I would be. My hdl/ldls and all that jazz counted me off but was told it wasn’t major, just could be MUCH better.

My glucose levels were a little high, also something I was expecting. Once again, nothing in the dangerous levels but with proper diet, nutrition, exercise and due diligence could be hopefully rectified. If a great enough change is not seen in three months more in-depth testing will result to test thyroid and stuff like that.

My VO2 levels weren’t that great either and that was something I always thought was wonky. It has seemed for many years now that it took more effort than necessary to catch my breath and stuff like that. It was suggested I take a test to look deeper into my problems as this can be a hindrance to exercise and daily life. When funds come available it will be first on my list.

The biggest thing that counted me off nor was that big of a shocker was my body fat percentage. It is no secret that I am overweight and inmany places considered obese. This means a recommended lower carb diet, something I was working towards anyway. Now I am one of those crazies checking the back of the box and doing the math. Looking not at calories but carbs.

All and all, I know this is for the greater good and a LONG road is ahead of me to lose my hopeful 60 lbs. Already down like 5ish, which is a start.

Now I must force another 24+ ounces of water down my throat, joy.
