Let's see what the numbers say.
Last time I had my cholesterol checked a few years ago (2005?), it was 150, which the doctor says is very good. I got it checked this morning, so we'll have to see what it is now.
I check my blood sugar once a month or so, and it's never above 100. Once, I checked it after a sugar binge and it was 111. This is a vast improvement from 2002, when it was in the 300s.
My blood pressure this morning was 80/63. My doctor says this is a good thing - "it means you're healthy!" - and a preliminary visit to Dr. Google would seem to confer, but I think it seems low and I should eat more bacon.
Thing is, my weight puts me in the morbidly obese category. What gives? Like 85% of the time, I really do eat good stuff. Know what I eat for breakfast most of the time? All Bran. Listen, it's not delicious by any stretch of the imagination, but the poops are SO satisfying.
Maybe I just eat too much good stuff. I guess I figure if it's good stuff, I can eat a little extra. I reckon I can't. But how much do I need to adjust my eating habits if the numbers are somewhat positive? I'm confused.
