Got my cholesterol results back from the Drs and it is now ... 2.3. To say i am delighted is an understatement. I know i adhered to the diet for 6 months, but it paid off. Funny thing is, i don't want the foods i gave up. To celebrate, i bought a new pair of walking shoes and with the sun out, i shall test them out today. Feeling fitter and, healthier than ever, without the cigs and fatty foods. It's hard to give up anything in the beginning but, once you get over the hurdles, the feeling of accomplishment is worth it.
