Down by Half!

Yesterday the results of my blood work arrived, and my cholesterol values are CUT IN HALF! IN HALF! I have to say, I love me some Lipitor.

Now for the bad news: my triglycerides are still high. I did a google search on cutting triglycerides, and it looks like I have to cut out all of the stuff I love:
* carbohydrates
* sugar
* alcohol

Yes, alcohol.

I'm bummed. I guess I'll go have a salad for lunch. Cause I'm supposed to eat more green leafy vegetables and lose weight.

That's just cutting out the stuff that makes life, well, life! I'm so sorry, that's horrible!

I'm in the same situation. Only I'd cut way back on the same things? And my numbers went UP. I'd lost 10 lbs (yay!) but the numbers were up, which brought me down.

New meds, great hope. Good luck!
