CINDY, I am 69 years young. I came to this site because I read the BOOK 'The Spark". then I had to learn to use a computer, it was a tough beginning. Now it is better. I live in Maine. When I came here I was 225 and had type 2 diabetes on medication, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I also had three herniated discs and one needed surgery.
NOW, I am off medication for Blood pressure and diabetes and cholesterol is good but the Triglycerides are still over the number -just a bit. I want it all right on. I totally love this site. I was on a plateau-no weight loss- for over a year and I bought the Spark SOLUTION book so I am tweaking it a bit. I eat much more fiber now and it is helping. I only eat whole foods and nothing from a box. I love to cook . You can do this just as I have if you track your food the spark way, especially at first. Portion control is really the issue. I know I went to WW and gained weight now I measure my food to learn what a portion really is and it was not points . I use measuring cups.
