However, when I used FitDay in the past there were no forums. So this part is new for sure.

I really want to lose the 20 pounds I gained back, plus about 50 more! I cannot do this on my own. I need help, and support. I am excited to say that yesterday I went on, an albeit short, bike ride, and tonight I went to an Aquacize class. I have a couple friends in the class so I know I will go back. I am just so scared that this time it won't work.

My Fibromyalgia is flared up, and this makes things difficult. I noticed a thread regarding Hypothyroidism. I, too, suffer from an very underactive thyroid. The normal range is 0.38-5.5 and mine is currently 91.3!~ And evidently my cholesterol is high as well. {Does anyone know anything about lowering cholesterol? Mine has never been high before}

Anyway, I just really wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little about my journey.

I hope that everyone had a lovely day!!

Better Days~

Svenva Hi, welcome! , You will not valen because now you also support the forum. I must honestly say that the people on this forum really motivate me to still continue and that everyone there a problem with that so I'm not ashamed to have to if it is a little less time. I have some things for you to a decrease chorelesterol perhaps you something. You can also request the doctor a dietitian? That looks to your daily diet to see what the risk is less, the food.

Cereals: Cereals contain very little fat (about 3%) and most unsaturated fat. Moreover, grain quickly feel full and contain many fibers. A cholesterol lowering diet based on cereals and cereal products.

Fruit and vegetables: Fruit and vegetables contain very minor amounts of fat, the majority of which is unsaturated. A healthy diet is rich in fruit and vegetables. But you already knew this, right?

Dairy products: milk products are very varied and you must watch what kind you eat dairy products. Cream is a milk product, but contains much fat. Based products are relatively high milk fat, which in most cases is saturated fat. Dairy products are the main source of calcium, so they you can not delete your diet. Because of your high cholesterol, your best skimmed milk.

Meat and poultry: meat is pretty much in saturated fat, while some birds (such as chicken and turkey) are relatively low in fat. Other poultry (duck, goose) are more fatter. You can reduce fat by removing skin from poultry

Fish and seafood: fish is a special case. Oily fish (salmon, herring, mackerel) contain much fat ... but these fish are from the cholesterol position, ideal for food. They in fact contain much omega-3 fats, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease reduction.

Fats and oils: butter, olive oil, fats in meat and fish are all fat, but have a different effect on the body, and thus on the cholesterol level. Saturated fats should you absolutely limit, while the unsaturated species a positive impact on your body. You may notice that a cholesterol-lowering diet has many similarities with a remarkably healthy diet that is recommended by various bodies. Coincidence? Probably not: a balanced, healthy diet leads to a healthy cholesterol levels and also to an ideal weight.

. All fats are a combination of fatty acids. A fat or oil is divided into 3 categories, depending on what type of grease or oil is the best present: Saturated fats such as butter, at room temperature to solidify. These fats are harder the more it cooled. Usually, these fats of animal origin, such as fat in pork, beef, poultry,
Saturated fats such as butter, at room temperature to solidify. These fats are harder the more it cooled. Usually, these fats of animal origin, such as fat in pork, beef, poultry, unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature and comes mostly from vegetable products. Unsaturated fats are further subdivided:Mono-unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature, but are thicker when cooled. Examples are olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, ... Poly-unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature and remain liquid even when refrigerated. Examples are corn oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, cotton seed oil, but the fats in oily fish.

You probably have already heard of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential fatty acids because they ... are essential for your body. A short review:
Omega-3 fatty acids are a form of poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Like the other poly-unsaturated fatty acids, these fats important for good health. These fats are mainly found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel and herring.

Omega-6 fatty acids are also among the group of poly-unsaturated fats. Unlike the "bad" fats such as cholesterol and saturated fat, omega-6 fats are beneficial to your body. These fats are found mainly in cereals, eggs, poultry, most vegetable oils and wholemeal bread.

Omega-9 fatty acids are not really essential fatty acids because these fatty acids in the body itself can create limited quantities. In the body, this fatty acid to cholesterol deposits in the arteries to remove the blood balanced and the immune system to maintain.

good luck
