Great day to get this news - I have high cholesterol

Finally got myself up early to go in for fasting blood work on Tuesday. Got the results in an email this morning. Cholesterol is 256! I've been borderline before, but this is awful.

Doctor wants to put me on drugs (probably a statin) and I'm reluctant - perhaps because this certifies that I am old if I have to take a pill every day.

Any cholesterol buddies out there in DU land? Any thoughts about increasing exercise and fixing diet being enough?

Saw The Holdovers last weekend

It's wonderful. I see very few movies these days because they are all so disturbing.

Paul Giamatti is incredible. Many Oscar noms here.
