New Me

Yeah, what happened to this post?  Well, there's still pretty much the old me. I've lost a total of 9 pounds since May, which I really think sucks.  But I do have to admit, I've not been dieting per se.  I been doing Zumba twice a week, though. I love it.

Now, why have I decided to post?  Well, I had blood work done a couple of weeks ago and got the results this week.  My triglycerides are through the roof and as I'm already on a cholesterol lowering med, my doctor suggested a supplement instead.  I am not advocating anything here, so I won't give the name of it yet.  I got the stuff in the mail today, a high fiber mix I can put in water, juice, milk or cola (not sure I want to drink orange flavored milk). I drink it 10-15 mins before I eat.  In addition to lowering the triglycerides, it's also supposed to help me lose weight.  Oh, yea!!!  So, I'm going to keep you updated on that "side-effect."

I'm also going to have to cut back on white bread, white rice, pasta, know everything I like!
Here's as website to check .... guess I need to look it over again, too.  11 Power Foods to Lower Cholesterol.

Hi, Dona. Holly has taken this session off, but I decided to stick with it. I love my instructor. She's so upbeat. I wish you could come too, it's fun. But it's most likely too much for your ankle.

Congrats on losing 9 lbs! I hear that the Zumba classes are fun, but never tried one of the classes yet. I hope you get your triglycerides lowered.

Hi, Becky. I know I shouldn't be too upset about the amount of weight I've lost, but what irritates me is that I lost it all at the beginning, nothing for the past month! LOL.

Zumba is fun and I know part of that is the instructor, who makes it fun for us and let's us work at our own pace, which for me is sometimes standing still and staring at what she's doing.
