The start of this was all about the cholesterol. But the journey has become so much more.

HDL: 52
LDL: 107
Chol/HDL ratio:3.4

I love Sparkpeople and all the friends who are supporting me on this journey. Just 16.5 lbs. to go to achieve my weight goal. Then we start all over with new goals to accomplish!

Thanks so much for your encouragement. I'm in it to win it! It is difficult, sometimes moreso than others, but I will continue to perservere. And I know you will too.

I know we are supposed to forgive ourselves for slipping up, but I think I actually did too much forgiving, and need to be just a bit tougher on myself. I know that is what really works for me.

Thanks again for your kind words.
