High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

Well said Arizona,

When I was 13, my mother took me to the doctor for my physical to get into high school. She really lectured me about my weight. I was 5 feet tall and weight 142 pounds. Not even overweight by today's dumbed down weight standards for kids but in 1969 I stood out in the crowd!

She went out of her way to show me her daughter standing there wearing short shorts, all thin and said I would never have a boyfriend if I continue on this way. She also warned me about heart disease as well; hmmmm, how ironic.

Anyway, I got out of there crying. My mother tried to get me to eat hotdogs at an amusement park and I refused to eat them.

I went down to 120 pounds and was able to wear mini skirts!! And I did manage to get a boyfriend! But more importantly I think had it not been for that doctor I would be an obese person today. My brother is obese and has to take meds for diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure - classic syndrome X. Virtually everone in my family is obese, even the young ones. I am now 49 and I weigh 124 pounds. I owe it all to the doctor.

Like you said sometimes you need a kick in the butt.
