    Its on the main page -- but there is a story above it about baby octopus - just scroll down and you'll see it. Its a great story about real things so many of us women deal with.

    Thanks guys. It was hard to write, but I thought maybe other people would benefit from seeing it. I figured i couldn't be the only person struggling with some of these things!

    Thumbs up

    Big thumbs up and a thank you, Lady Grok. So many parts I can relate to ...

    One of my primary goals since starting PB has been to improve my "blood work" numbers. So I got my doctor to write orders for them a little ahead of schedule (was supposed to be a month later, but I know that month is going to be hectic for me, and I also wanted to make sure I was on the right track, or if I needed to tweak something). Got the numbers back yesterday. I dunno why she only ordered triglycerides and not a lipid panel, so I don't have my HDL/LDL/tot. cholesterol, BUT ... *drum roll* ... my triglycerides have gone from 176 down to 126 (now in the "normal" rather than "pre-diabetic" range) and my glucose has gone from 144 down to 98 (also now in the "normal" range). Whee!

    I see her on Monday, and I hope I will be able to reduce my BP medication, perhaps by half? We'll see.

    ETA: And I'm going prepared with a printout with links to this site and many related sites. You never know when you'll find a receptive doctor.

    Yay, Jodi's, that's great! Make sure your Doc orders the full panel next time, too. I hate that they only run partials... sometimes after you HAVE reminded them! Grrr! Good luck with your visit!

    @ Jodis - if it hasn't been too long since the blood draw you can still request the other tests. Labs always keep some of the blood frozen for a month incase a test needs to be re-done. Its worth a shot - that way, only one draw instead of 2.

    Well, I see her on Monday, so maybe she can ask for it then.

    That is good info! I am having my blood drawn soon too, and never realized they froze some of it "just in case." Hmmmm.....

Maybe there was something in the air/water/food back in the 70s and 80s. Thank you so much for sending that in to Mark.
    You're very welcome! I am so overwhelmed by all the wonderful people who posted comments about it- I honestly thought I would get a lot of body-snarking. And it is shocking (and kind of disheartening)to hear how many people (specifically, women) have a similar story to tell. I still have a long way to go, but dammit, I worked hard to get here. And while I would like to be lighter, I have to concede that for me, being healthy is more important than what basically amounts to (in my case) vanity. That doesn't mean I will stop trying to find the magic formula though- as long as it's Primal.
