DIETITIANBECKY, yes I have my medication checked regularly, I am also on medications for high bloodpressure, Rheumatoid Arthritis and osteoarthritis, see I have many, many reasons to keep at this.
I am such a "glob of blubber" I didn't want to do my measurements and face what a real mess I have let myself become; but I was thinking that was probably something I should have done in the beginning, I do feel a little looseness in my jeans and clothes, so maybe that's where its at for me right now.
Until I joined Sparks I hadn't done any exercise in years and had learned due to no cartilidge in my knees to walk as little as possible and multitasks on multiple levels, which is a great way to relieve stress on joints, but not to keep weight off. I had both of my knees replaced in Jan. 2010 but then developed RA so I really hadn't started any type of exercise routine. I am feeling better thanks to watching what I eat and getting more active so I have no intention of quitting, just want results slow and steady.
