Making the effort to improve my health

I was getting high enzyme numbers for my liver, so I decided to get serious about exercising and my food intake. I have gone on a high fiber diet. I am working on improving my exercise. My blood pressure and blood sugar have drastically dropped. The doctor said I no longer needed a liver biopsy, so my INITIAL efforts have paid off. Now it is up to me to KEEP IT OFF, or I'll be right back where I was.

My Goals:
My last blood work put me in the range for needing a liver biopsy, and since I would rather try losing weight as the lesser of two evils I was lucky enough to run across SPARKSPEOPLE while searching for a calorie counter.

My Program:
I am reading ALL labels and chosing the products lower in carbohydrates and high in fiber. I consume about seventy-five carbs per day and exercise on the treadmill I eat a good breakfast using whole wheat cereals not just wheat, but WHOLE WHEAT , fruit and low fat yogurt. a very light snack between meals 3 times day. I eat regular food Lunch and Dinner but I really control my portions. So far, so good. It isn't as easy to lose weight at 76 as it was when I was younger and full of energy....

Other Information:
My husband and I have been married for 60 years and have 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. We have been extremely blessed to have been together this long and to have shared in much happiness with all the children.

Hi Joyce

Those photo's of your hubby's skin was a little scary for me. They have started spraying my skin with liquid nitrogen to recess the cancerous cells I guess. The Dr also performed a little office surgery to take a little hunk out of my lower neck.
I now wear a hat all the time and am better about putting protective lotion on. I go to the pool later in the day. I do take precautions, but Dang, sooner or later something is going to get me. I would rather it be latter being I am rather enjoying my life with Oliver.

I hope things go better for U soon. ((HUGS)) MA
