    Congratulations, that's got to feel great! My family wants to know my cholesterol numbers now after starting primal. They are not convinced. I had to learn to eat fat as well. Your story is very inspiring.

    Make sure you tell them high cholesterol is just fine. It's fun to watch the steam come out of people's ears.

    Thank you so much all. Paleo/primal is saving my life, literally. This is becoming my sort of "progress thread" but I'm running with it!

    Well, I found a naturopath that I love. I had my cholesterol checked again the other day. Knifegill, you are right - high numbers by themselves are not the enemy - high total cholesterol is typical with "low carb" Primal type diets. My total cholesterol is a little elevated, but my triglycerides and "good" cholesterol are excellent.

    I'm still only 50 pounds down from my highest weight; I've stalled a little because I caught a nasty flu and haven't felt like exercising for a couple of weeks. I'm not too worried about that, it'll take care of itself once I get moving again.
