I am a 44-year-old woman. As long as I can remember, I have been overweight. I quit smoking 4/8/12, and gained more weight. I had my wellness physical today (8/13/12) and it was not good ... blood panel showing high cholesterol, blood sugar, uric acid. My doctor put me on two prescriptions, one for cholesterol and one for uric acid to prevent gout attacks I've been experiencing this past year. I do not want to travel down the road of needing prescription drugs to keep me alive and not enjoying my quality of life. I must take control of my health, make better food and exercise choices, and realize my goal of quality healthy living!
