My weight has been coming off but it has been painfully slow since I broke my foot and am unable to really work out. It wasn't until last night that I became ok with the slowness of my weight. <BR> <BR> Why? Because I realized that it was 5 years ago this coming December that I attended a weightloss surgery seminar and I was at my hi... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 10:18:20 EST Time for an update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5026133 Lots of things have changed since my last blog post. The best change is that I went to see a pulmonary specialist who said that I did NOT have pulmonary hypertension! That was a wonderful day. But I still had my symptoms of leg swelling, shortness of breath and heart palpitations with no reason they were happening. <BR> <BR> Then came Lent. I decided that this year I would do something that concentrated on my health so I gave up bad carbs. No bread, no pasta, no cookies/brownies or ic... Wed, 22 Aug 2012 10:13:23 EST Sparkpeople Workout DVD http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4670792 A few weeks ago I got a bonus spin and I was lucky enough to land on the Sparkpeople DVD. Oh boy was I excited to try and change things up a bit! It finally came yesterday!!! I'm going to use it today and I can't wait! <em>244</em> <em>252</em> Tue, 10 Jan 2012 09:14:25 EST Not great news...the fight begins! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4659954 I got some not so great news today about my echo I had on Tuesday. It shows that I have mild pulmonary hypertension. I have heard about it but never really understood what it meant until I looked it up. The outlook isn't great, it is a progressive disease that in time will get worse. It can get worse slowly or quickly. It didn't say that diet and exercise will help but I'm hoping that if I can lead a healthier lifestyle that I can keep it from progressing and it will stay mild forever. <... Thu, 5 Jan 2012 15:34:43 EST 3rd times a charm right? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4644058 Ahh here we are again Sparkpeople. I am at the cross road again where I must lose weight in order to live. I have been having some health issues lately and the doctor is trying to find out what is going on. My hands and legs have been getting so swollen I have what's called pitting edema. It can be pretty bad if I don't drink enough and elevate when possible. This condition itself has caused me to gain about 5-7 pounds since Thanksgiving when it started. I have also been having some hea... Thu, 29 Dec 2011 22:08:13 EST Come back to Spark http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1509136 So a year or so ago I decided that I just didn't want to diet anymore and I gave up. I figured that I just wasn't making any progress and it was too hard. Yes that was a HUGE mistake! <BR> <BR> So here I sit now even heavier than before and more depressed over the weight. Yesterday we had a birthday party to go to at a sports park. This sports park has all kinds of stuff to do. Well my 3yo wanted to ride to go karts and that means someone must do it with her. While we were waiting in... Mon, 13 Oct 2008 10:01:41 EST
