I had a physical yesterday, and like last time my HDL is still low. (it's 28...somethings and normal is 40...somethings) The good news is that my triglycerides and LDL were normal this time. Oh, and I need to lose some weight, which I already knew.

I got my results on a nice little sheet with the normal values and what I could do (non-medicationwise) to improve the values. On literally every measure, the first two items were "Lose weight" and "Exercise more". Um, great.

Also, I moved at work today! Exciting.

So I recently rejoined weight watchers and they have this new etools thing that's really cool (you can join the online thing without going to meetings). It's way better for me for keeping track of what I eat than the old way of journaling -- it's all online, you can search for common foods, thousands of prepared foods/fast food/restaurants, and (my favorite part) you can put in any recipe and it calculates everything for you. Plus you can put in the type and amount of exercise you do and it transfers it to points (which you can then eat!).

Anyhow, it seemed like something you might like -- ask Mom, I think she has a coupon for a free month for family, so you could give it a try.
