talking about food ...


i got some good news last week ... my cholesterol is now perfectly NORMAL!!!!

YAY!

i was glad that a change of diet was all that was needed ... i was eating too many lean cuisine type meals ... leo doesn't eat normal at all - and the aroma of something cooking can actually make him nauseous - therefore i got lazy in preparing meals for myself ... the result - elevated cholesterol ...

now that i'm back on track, i can enjoy some Christmas treats ... not too many - but some!

YAY! thank you Lord!


Vegetables are a must on a diet.
I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

I am happy for you, Saija. I need to get myself straightened out. I don't know what mine will be at my physical next week.

Dear Ssaja,
I am happy for you.
I envy you your slender figure.
And also enjoy every treat you can think of for the Holidays.
Stress is in fact the worst cholesterol rocket.
Poison for your body.
Not that easy to avoid though.

I think my cholesterol was high when I was born...

I have fought the battle most of my adult life...

I get it down...and it goes right back up...


O.K. so maybe I do eat a little too much cheese...

Two cheers for you! I'm happy to hear that all it took was a change of diet. Sometimes the heridity factor is very hard to win, but for you it seems all you needed was a different choice of food. Keep up the good work!

That is excellent news, just in time for the holidays! A holiday season without treats is no fun at all. Congratulations!

Mari said...

Yeah for you! Those meals are supposed to be healthy, but I guess they're not in that aspect.
