Feeling Elated !!!!!!

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.

  • Thats absolutely brilliant Lanemorph BIG well done. I know in my case it`s more eating out of boredom, but I have now changed my eating habits and like you say you do feel better for it. :) :)

  • Wow Lanemorph - you are absolutely glowing with pride - AND QUITE RIGHTLY SO!

    Well done on 2 massive achievements and enjoy those walking boots, it's a beautiful day out there and you'll be walking on air!


  • Thank you both for your kind words. To be honest, i was frightened into doing it. When my G.P rang me in December and i said he'd scared me, he said, good. Now i think about how many lbs of butter i would have eaten, bottles of olive oil, eggs, bacon etc, i shudder.I think when i quit cigarettes, food was my crutch. I needed it to get through the initial withdrawal symptoms. It worked and anyone who does quit will gain weight but, as i was told on here, one step at a time. Aside from chicken, i only eat fresh food now.The one thing i wont give up is coffee. I'm still on 6 bags of beans a month. x

  • I'm exactly the same so THANK YOU for your post which gives me hope.I've used food as a crutch despite saying I wasn't going to.I'm now cutting out bad things introducing good things and exercising.I know I'll get to where I need to be.Sadly,like you,I won't live without my coffee and my bean to cup machine (just love it to bits!!) 4 bags of beans a month for us.WELL DONE Lanemorph,you are indeed a superstar.

  • LOL Thanks YS. Take it easy on the exercise. Remember,tortoises live for years and they don't rush about. I like walking and when you have great scenery its enjoyable unlike boring, costly, strenuous gym classes.We shall encourage each other.x
