Cholesterol Test 4 months ago


I am new here- I went to the doctors to get some help with stopping smoking - I had a session of hypnotherapy by a doctor in the doctors surgery ( more of relaxation and going to a place in my head that is calming and a pressure point for when I had a craving) - I am pleased to say that along with a pen I have been smoke free for over 3 months.

The doctor asked me before the above about my family history etc and he suggested I have my bloods checked for cholesterol. So I made an appointment and had my bloods taken and tested, not just for cholesterol but a general health check on them too.

I received a call to say they wanted to discuss the results with me and so i made an appointment and I am border line (can't remember the figure) I was advise to change my life style ie stop smoking which they knew I was already trying to do, eat healthily etc. Then to go back in 6 - 12 moths and get checked again.

I am proud that I have given up the cigarettes, however I put a bit of weight on and found the 12 week plan on Saturday and started it today.

I am also trying the couch to 5k and doing the stretching and flexing as well.

Any advice / tips would be gratefully received

Off to have a wee look around now - thanks for reading

Your doing the right things. With weight it is generally over eating that is the problem. Even by eating healthy you can put weight on. Portion control is the key.
