P.S. to my earlier update... My doctor agreed to hold off re-checking my cholesterol until November. This gives me some time to get over this stomach thing and get into a better eating routine. I'm ok with that for now. We talked about me not being quite so strict with the diet, and she said I could allow myself an occasional "free day" as long as I included a salad on that day. I'll work on it. Right now I'm still working on just eating.
