Cholesterol Update

The whole reason I started on this healthy journey, just over a year ago, was to lower my cholesterol. I started working out and changed the way I ate.

I went to the doctors this summer for my “well-check” and had my blood work done.

I have lost 35 lbs.

But I gained 20 points in my cholesterol.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I nearly cried.

I have worked so hard, I’ve completely changed my life and on the outside you can see that. But apparently on the inside I’m not looking so good.

They wanted to put me on medicine right away. But honestly, my cholesterol is still lower then it was three years ago.

So I said no.

They said I should exercise (ha, ha, that’s funny) and do the Mediterranean Diet. I looked into it but I’m not leaving THM. I’m going to keep doing what I am doing and see what doing THM for a year does. I have only been doing it since March, so I want to give it some time. I have heard so many other people say their cholesterol went down doing THM.

I will eat less eggs, as I have been eating a lot and try to do more E meals for breakfast, which would be oatmeal or THM pancakes. But I’m not changing it that much. I love eggs!!

Just thought I would share. We’ll see what the numbers say next year.
