No, that's not my weight although I would love it if it was. It's my cholesterol and I'm so damn HAPPY about it I'm about to burst! I'm doing a little happyhappyjoyjoy dance right now...

This is all part of my resolution to become healthy this year and to STAY healthy. That's the big kicker - staying healthy after I get the pounds off. So I've given myself permission to take my time and introduce changes slowly. I've lost 15 pounds so far and just bought some smaller jeans and bras.

And... after five weeks I've brought my cholesterol down too - about 40 points down. The best part? The Doctor cut my cholesterol pill dosage in half. I would be absolutely thrilled to get off those pills completely.

I go back in 1 month to have it retested and we'll see if my number stays down.

Oatmeal, her I come!
