what the !!#*(??$##........

emoticon emoticon I am "almost" lost for words...!!!
I had lost 35+ lbs. and was eating great by mid November. I went in to see my dr. for my yearly blood work expecting nothing other than good ...
I finally found out last week, my cholesterol and triglycerides went through the roof....WHAT??

I'm now on cholesterol medication and will go back in a month to check if it's working. I busted my ass for 6 months to eat properly and lose weight.... I'm totally shocked and so was my dr.

I'm setting up new goals, setting up a low cholesterol menu and shopping list on sparkpeople and see what happens within the month.

Changing my teams to cholesterol, heart and high blood pressure support.

If anyone else has other ideas to help me .... please, please, please do!!!

Thanks, Carol emoticon

    My aunt was a tiny little thing and extremely active. She mountain biked and roller bladed regularly. She ate pretty good as well. Her cholesterol was thru the roof. Like ALL IS Amazing said- heredity does you in sometimes.

Just keep at it. You are on the right track! Hang in there!

    Carol--Sorry to hear this news but it sounds like you have a good plan in place. I am going to the doctor next month for my annual so I hope I get good news.

    How frustrating when you were expecting good news! That happened to me, too. And I was on pravastatin. The doctor is sure that I wasn't taking my medication, but I was. I don't know what else to do, either.

    It's great that there are so many teams on Spark to meet each member's needs. I hope you get a handle on your cholesterol!

    It sounds like you are doing everything right! They told my dad that his cholesterol problems were hereditary and that's why he had high cholesterol even though his lifestyle was healthy.
