Thanks for your posts, Anne! Itís taken me a while to respond to you because I have sketchy internet connectivity where I am staying right now, and for some reason the VegSource website is the hardest for me to stay connected to. So, I have combined my responses into one post and moved it to the top of the page. It seems I am able to post New Messages with fewer problems than replying to existing messages. Ah well, part of the trade off for this kind of lifestyle.

Wow, sounds like you are having a cholesterol experience similar to mine! I never knew menopause could contribute to the problem. I am also through menopause, so maybe that has been a contributing factor. But it also sounds like we were both letting the vegan junk food sneak into our diets as well. I didnít realize how much difference any oil in the diet could make until reading Esselstyn. Iíve been really strict about that since I found out, and am really hoping it makes a difference. I get my level re-checked at the end of this month, my fingers are crossed. I have reduced my red wine to about two 4-oz glasses per week. Iíve also knocked off the daily coffee habit, and increased my exercise, so maybe everything taken together will make the difference. It sounds like you have done very well getting your cholesterol level back down, thatís great!

You asked, ďWhereabouts do you live?Ē Right now we are located near Sacramento, California. We will be here until mid March, at which time we will start heading towards northeast, eventually landing in Michigan where we will be from May to September. From there, we will spend about two years on that side of the country exploring. (Iím not sure if you are aware that my husband and I live and travel full time in our 5th wheel.)

Hope to hear more from you here in the Tent! :)

Take Care,
