January 31, 2017 -- And things were going so well...

We had a setback today.  Kathe's doctor called and told her that she has dangerously high cholesterol levels and that she needs to do something about it right away.  Although she has always had higher-than-normal cholesterol levels, this is especially high.  Her high level is likely due to our diet because in addition to the green veggies, few fruits, no refined sugar, etc. it also contains high fat to keep me from losing weight.

Sooo, we have to now go on two separate diets which means double the work every meal and double the cleanup, not to mention the confusion when we go food shopping.  I will have to pitch in on the meal prep, in addition to the cleanup, which I have been doing.

Of course the pain that having the two diets pales when the health of both of us is concerned.  I am hoping and praying that Kathe will be okay.  We both hate the idea of her taking statins, so diet will be the first order of business.  Now we need to go to the grocery store!
