For those of you who knew I was having some blood work done to make sure I wasn't redeveloping metabolic syndrome, the initial results indicate that all is well. Blood sugars are normal, A1C is normal, insulin is normal, cortisol is normal, thyroid is normal. Cholesterol is slightly elevated.
I'm relieved, and at the same time feel a bit frustrated.
More good news, after whining and venting, I relaxed some. And the scales are nudging downwards again.
