    Really interesting!

    There's this 'know your numbers' roashow' thing and I had to fill out a bit of a questionnaire, have a cholesterol test, weight, height etc.

    I've never had a cholesterol test before so I found that one the most interesting. It's all perfectly normal! Woohoo! However, my good cholesterol (HDL) is a teeeny bit on the low side. To boost this, I need more good fats - olive oil, avocado, nuts etc...and red wine! Hahaha! Guess what I'll be spending my syns on from now on?

    Also interesting was my waist measurement, which I thought would be way, way off, seeing as my bmi is 26.2, according to the chappie. But it's actually 84cm and they recommend women to be under 80 for reducing the risk of heart problems.

    So...I am actually more normal than I thought I was!!! :D

    What I am not too happy about is being 162cm...which means I am not 5'4" as I always claim. I am a snifter under it at 5'3 ¾ :cry:I am a shortarse!!!

    It's nice to know I am healthy generally and low risk of cardiac disease!

    Thats great about your results.... my OH got a phone call from the GP to say that his cholesterol is 7.5. Thats grim. Boo Hoo. But he is so skinny and eats what I eat (ie SW). But he does smoke and he does drink too much (never drunk tho).... but he wont believe me that its the ciggies and drink. The GP said its either his diet or its hereditory (sp.?)... he never mentioned the ciggies and the cider. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Sorry to hijack your thread sweetie. lol

    That's good news. You must be really pleased to see the results in the flesh, so to speak!

    I'm 5.3 and wish I was taller!

    Perhaps! I will have to save the syns for it though, but OH won't complain. We love red wine in our house :)

    Yes, I think I will leave the red wine treatment for good cholesterol until after I've gotten into that 12, thank you for the not-so-subtle reminder! LOL! :D

    That's not a hijack :)
    Sorry to hear about your OH. It's not that high, but he could do with getting it down. If he's eating what you eat then he needs to cut down the booze and fags, definitely....and start getting some exercise. I've been reading on tinternet this afternoon about what to do! Print him some stuff out and give him a health scare - tell him he's heading for a heart attack if he's not careful!!!
