I've been here before, left, tried some other things, and am back for another try. I lost about 45 pounds on weight watchers a couple of years ago, but a combination of factors led to my regaining the weight. Hoping that this place, in combination with Weight Watchers and mindful eating, will help me to get back on track and become more healthy.

I saw your message on the LIC huddle. I read your blog from yesterday and WOW! You should give yourself a pat on the back for even having time to think about Sparking, let alone actually *doing* it!

I saw your call for support on the EE team! I don't know how much support I can be. I'm kind of in the same boat as you! I broke my diet over the holidays and haven't made it thru a full week without cheating since. I had gained 17 lbs between Thanksgiving and mid-Jan. I have since lost all but 3 lbs of it, but still have not regained the discipline to stay away from what I know is poison to my body. I did lose 31 lbs in 3-4 mos. last summer. My diet although not a healthy one (low carb-high protein), works for me! Hang in there, you can do it! emoticon Best of luck to you in your efforts! emoticon

Sharon,

I have had to cut down my sodium too. I have gotten used to unsalted butter, swiss cheese, low fat ricotta instead of cottage cheese, and we buy a brand of sliced ham called Celebrity Ham, its made in Canada and sold in Trader Joe's stores here. I also get good no salt added tuna there. I like a small sandwich for lunch and deli meats are horrible for sodium aren't they? I have to say though, the very best thing I did for high blood pressure was to give up coffee. I have one cup regular tea in the morning and the rest of the day is decaf or herbal tea. Small changes here and there...we'll get there!!

Take care, Sandy

Sharon,

Just checking in to see how you're doing. Do you have alot of snow up there? In CT we get little bits of snow, and the mid-Atlantic states are getting all of it. It's okay though, the less it snows the better my chances of walking! I am keeping to my nutrition planning and walking...went over a few times, but not bad. I'm learning. How about you?
Have a great day, and I hope all is well with you.
