I just got back from the doctor. In the past year, I lowered my cholesterol by 30 points, increased my bone density by 8%, and lost a whole size. I increased my activity level to support my interests in outdoor activities, and I even straightened out some structural problems in my spine! I am stronger, more fit, and I don’t even feel like I’m doing much. Amazingly, I am really enjoying myself. What I am doing is totally sustainable and growing at a nice pace.
