I have exercised almost all my life. When I was younger I was extremely fit, but have packed on the pounds over the last decade. My doctors keep thinking they can show the result of my being now overweight through blood work, but alas, I am always in normal ranges. I took a cardiac stress test with EKG and ultrasound a few months ago, again, passed with flying colors.

I do attribute all those positive results to exercise. However, the downside is, there is less incentive to lose weight. I have to concentrate solely on how I look and feel, as opposed to a cause/effect relationship to my health. (I should also add that I eat primarily organic healthy food--I "simply" overeat.)

Thanks Jen. I had to quit taking my cholesterol medication because it was too expensive and while I was off it, I discovered my kidney function tests returned to normal! So, now I'm hesitant to go back on cholesterol lowering meds again. I have cut back on TV time to get off the couch and do other things like work around the house and strength training for my arthritis. Thanks again.

My cholestrol is still too high, but it had dropped 24 points since I've become a SPARKER and lost 33# so for.

My doctor is envious of my cholesterol and he feels it is because I workout regularly at the gym........

You bet, BYEPOUNDS! I feel encouraged that we don't need to knock ourselves out for exercise to lower our cholesterol. Here's to lower numbers!

It's the amount of exercise not the intensity that will help lower cholestrol, the article says!

Great article. The Baby Boomers need clear instruction on simple exercises that can be done easily and at home.
