    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Fabulous numbers!!! Congratulations. I can only hope and pray that my cholesterol numbers have gone down when I get my blood work done within the next few weeks. I'm currently taking Zetia and Trilipix and I wish I didn't 'have' to. My dear doctor is sure my cholesterol problem is hereditary as is his and he's a skinny little guy too. Maybe I'll be able to cut my dosage in half to maintain. I'd say I do eat right about 80% of the time.

    Good job Judy!!
