Lowering my numbers

I posted this on my blog but I felt that it belonged here too. I'll make it short because I don't want to make you read this twice.

I now have a real health reason to be eating healthy and exercising daily. Not just a I want to lose weight and look good reason. Now it's a I need to bring down my cholesterol without drugs reason. I really hated the way I felt on those Statin drugs. I was tired, sluggish, jelly-legged, muscle achey and just generally weird. Now that I am off the drugs I feel much better and I want to say that way.

Making the best food choices that I can (this F*ing Agreement) is now more important than ever. Easing up on the bread and getting more fiber is now a priority. Oatmeal in the morning, salads and veggie soups for lunch and more veggies for dinner is now the focus. Health is now the important thing.

Diet and exercise. Here we go again.


  1. Dr. V- gave me a lecture about getting more apples into my diet today. Seems to me that Lucy (my old nutrition teacher) said that they can lower cholesterol too.

  2. Hey Laura,

    Thanks for the apple tip. I will be sure to include apples in my diet now. Go down, cholesterol. Down, down, down
