    I joined SW because my cholesterol was high, it had really scared me into sorting out my weight once and for all.

    My cholesterol was 5.5, I haven't had it checked since starting SW though. Since being on SW, now about 10 weeks, I haven't eaten any butter (which was my downfall!) and have lost 2st. I might get it checked out at the pharmacy, hopefully it has gone down. Will keep you posted!

    5.7 isn't massively high and it will probably reduce with a few diet changes and exercise. I know that my doctor nearly falls of the chair everytime they get the results of mine, which is always around 3.8 as they expect that from the size of me I must have mad high cholesterol but I never have done!
    My bf started taking those cholesterol reducing yogurt drinks & spreads and it's helped bring his down a little.

    I just got my cholesterol checked and it's now 4.03 - I am super pleased! :D

    Your cholesterol will go down if you follow SW, good luck!
