My numbers are high too, but the good cholesterol is high so that help's me. I eat meat, but I think the junk is more my problem and also that mom thing. So I challenged myself to eat no junk for the next 9 weeks ( but not the holiday days ). Got through 6 days so far and know I can do this. Did it before for 4 months, first two weeks are the hardest.....just hang in there, lots of support on this team. I lost 3.5 this week so far and that with KFC and Pizza, No cookies, candy, cake, pie, chips, crackers, pudding or if it looks like junk.

Welcome to the team. I'm fairly new. My cholesterol is 193 total but the good choesterol is only 50 and the bad is 143. I'm supposed to eat better and get it to come down by Feb or else go on meds.

Hi--I've tried Spark before but really didn't stick to it, so the pounds just kept accumulating. Big wakeup call happened last week--total cholesterol 270, and LDL of 187. I haven't eaten beef or pork for 35 years, and in the past three months also eliminated chicken and fish. So it's hard to understand how this number can be so high--but I hope using Sparkpeople will add the two things I need to do--lose weight and exercise. I'm looking forward to getting to know the people on this forum and sharing info.
