WOW! LDL Cholesterol dropped a whopping 30 points!

Hey Raw peoples! This is a quickie post and (sorry I have not posted but life has been crazy wicked) – Anyways, just got back from the Doc (a Hyst post-op appt) and my LDL cholesterol dropped 30 points – can you believe that? 30 points in four months. My LDL is now 109 – I am so happy! RA puts a person at much higher risk for cardio issues due to all the inflammation going on. So I want to do everything I can to lower my risks. My OB/Gyn Dr is so awesome. He is a firm believer in the overall total body approach and supports my veganism. All my other levels are great too. And I am not anemic – yeah!

So with that I will say…

"Goodbye In-N-Out Burger with melted, double cheese (for those who do not live in Cali, this is in fact a very traumatic goodbye) – Goodbye greasy french fries, Goodbye Ben and Jerry, Goodbye Taco bell, Goodbye fried chicken, Goodbye sourdough bread with butter slathered all over it - I shall miss you! Parting is such sweet sorrow (well sometimes it is!) and I am off to greener pastures!

Now if I could just lose that last 7 or 8 pesky pounds, my vegan life would be complete! lol.

The hubby's new pride and joy (I think he loves this Rubicon more than me!) We just got back from Utah – it was gorgeous!

So finally raw has done something for you! Excellent! I am so darn happy for you!!!

I am going to really try to stick to a more raw, I have been cheating like nobodies business lately...don't ask, it would frighten you!

I have low cholesterol, but why take a chance, my lower numbers on my blood pressure have been creeping up on me, it used to be like 117 over 70 and now it is 120 over 86...creepy~! Yay for you!!!

Congrats on the cholesterol. It's great that your doc is so open-minded. Hmm, I have seven pounds to lose, too - on my right leg, on my left leg, on my tummy. Erk.
