Hello, I'm New Here
I just wanted to say Hi to all on this forum. I'm not new to the forums and have hung out mainly on the cooking forum which has gotten me into a lot of trouble because now my cholesterol is out the roof and I have an arterial blockage. I am new to this forum because my Doctor has told me to loose weight and get my cholesterol down. My DH and I have really been enjoying ourselves going out to eat where we wanted, when we wanted and eating what we wanted (within reason of course). In addition we have cooked most everything we wanted. Now all of that has to come to a halt and I don't know if any of you have been through this or not, but I am actually going thru a grieving process because of loosing my lifestyle. I am also very angry that this has happened and I am the person I am angry with because I knew better. Consequently it has caused me to be depressed. I am working through all of this by trying to find alternative foods to some of those which are my favorites. I hope some of you can help. I've researched the net and find so much contradictory information out there.
