Update: November 28, 2012
At age 55, it is time to really start messing around with my health issues.

Under Drs. orders, he wants me to get my cholesterol down which has skyrocketed again. My plan is to eat more fruit and veggies and post to blogs the things I have done, what is working, what is not working, and how I am feeling. I also have some other goals which will be posted along the way.

Decembert 2013 UPDATE:
My cholesterol is down. My triglycerides are done, and my glucose is very good. Guess going vegan was a great thing for me to do.

Hi there! I'm dropping in to let you know that we are closing down the Determined Divas team and opening up a new one. I have sent you an invitation to join the new team and really hope that you do. I love having you as part of the team. Please check you email inbox where you get all your Spark newsletters, recipes and notifications because that's where the invitations will be, not your Sparkmail. I hope that you join the new Determined Divas team.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Trader Joes is worth a visit - so many things a regular grocery store doesn't have.
Have a great day!
