Cholesterol WIN

So yesterday was Valentine's Day, and to take care of my own heart, I went to have my cholesterol test. (Ok, it was just a coincidence, and not wanting to test right after the valentine's day meal.)

Results are in and I am winning!! My triglycerides have fallen from 302 (Aug 2010) to 225 (Aug 2011) to 173 (Feb 2012). The doctor would like to see that below 150 and says we don't have test for a year and I don't have to go on medication! My HDLs are fairly stable around 40, and my LDL is stable around 110. I've seen some higher LDL numbers back in 2004 and 2005.
