Got my numbers wrong since I was going from memory. My total cholesterol is actually 260, not 250!
I'm sitting here eating a bowl of cheerios in 1% milk. My dad and sister made me load up on boxes of cheerios, 2 for $4 at Walgreen's tonight. I guess I'll add a bowl of cheerios a day to my list. I like cheerios but haven't been eating them often since the store brands are noticeably inferior and I prefer to buy store brands to save money. It's kind of weird going from a "save money at all costs" way of thinking [due to my former surplused condition] to a "avoid cholesterol at all costs" way of thinking.
You know what's annoying? If I buy more than a quart of milk, I end up throwing some out. But the store (well, Kroger at least) only sells quarts of whole (3.5%), 2%, and skim milk! I had to buy a half gallon. Fortunately my girlfriend will be visiting soon and will help me consume some, but it looks like I'll be throwing out 50 cents every time I buy milk now, at least until I can taper down to skim.
I'm still hungry. Hmm, I wonder if I can have another bowl of cheerios.
