After reading entries on here thought all the blogs/questions were helpful so thought I would join!
The thing is I have just been diagnosed with high cholesterol 7.7 (the highest on the list the others being 5.1 - 5.5. It has increased by 1 point in 2 years. Anyway what I can't understand is that though I still have about 2 stone to loose (if I can!) I have lost 1.5 stone in 10 months through weight watchers. The loss is slow - as hence i have a life and a social life! But in general all my eating options are low fat. I have porridge oats made with water and sweetener. Use skimmed milk. Have a lot of salad. If any cake - it's a weight watchers one and usually boring rich tea biscuits. Yes occasional lapses but at least 5 days a week these are my options. Do not eat pies as don't like pastry and know how bad they are for you. Unfortunately due to full time work commitments, looking after kids and home, excercise is limited to walking the dog at night for about 20 mins - half an hour. I can only think the excercise is my downfall but wonder if anyone can throw any light on the matter as I don't really understand it?
