mimibenham's Journal, 08 December 2007

WELL LAST WEEK I GOT MY TEST RESULTS BACK FROM SOME BLOOD WORK. I'M NOT TO HAPPY. I HAVE VERY HIGH CHOLESTEROL YUCK!!!! MY DOCTOR PUT ME ON SOME PILLS AND TOLD ME TO GET OFF ATKINS AND ON A LOW CALORIE/LOW FAT DIET AND TO EXERCISE 3 TIMES A WEEK. AT FIRST I WAS SO UPSET. I WAS REALLY GETTING INTO THE ATKINS THING. BUT, NOW I'VE GOT MY MIND SET ON DOING GOOD ON THIS AND GETTING OFF THESE PILLS. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO TAKE PILLS. I ALSO DON'T WANT TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK OR STROKE. THATS ENOUGH TO GET MY BUTT IN GEAR AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I HOPE I STILL CAN LOSE THE 15 POUNDS BY CHRISTMAS. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE. THANKS FOR LISTENING!!!!

Bummer on the medicine. I'm always amazed at doctors to where the first thing they push on patients is "take these pills," instead of insisting diet & exercise & stress relief first, then if that don't work THEN maybe take pills. Since you were already doing some form of weight loss program, I think he should have let you continue with that for a while and encouraged you about how the benefits of a good wholesome diet will also help lower high cholesterol/blood pressure, reverse heart disease, etc. But nah! If doctors did that, they will lose big time profits. Hang in there.
