      LDL should be less than 130mg/dL. 

      Your at 136; is almost just above the high- normal range. 

      LDL is a form of cholesterol that is not considered a good one, however relying on this component alone is misleading. 

      The ratio of Triglyceride to HDL (>4) is a good indicator of coronary artery disease risk. 

      This ratio in your case for Oct 2016 was 12.81 (very high risk). 

      Now, March 2017, it is 3.38. 

      I would say you had a great transformation. did you work out a lot and changed your diet at the same time? Let us know.
