Hi , you can call me Faye ,,,, my first name is Velora and so I stuck that in there and thought it was suppose to be my name , duh ,,,,, . I am blonde as I take you may be also ? I am a retired hairstylist . I have one daughter in law that is a grade 3 teacher . I have officially started my diet today for food wise . : ) I had to make up my menu and list so now I can get going ! I HOPE ! I do love all foods trust me . Ilove sweet potatoes all that you listed . The dr. took my prunes away from me as I was eating a lot of them for snacks back a while ago for the fiber I need , and my carbs was way to high from them and there natural sugar . I will add just a few now and then now . I needed to put more fiber in my diet becuase I had my first Coloscopy done and I had three pre cancerous polyps removed ,,, and have diverticulitis or what ever .
So , fiber it is . I have to watch fats for high cholestrol and tryglycerides ,,, very high . I take Tricor and levostatin or something like that , as he just changed me after a few years on lipitor and gemfibrozil ,,,, with out meds my chol.level is like almost 900 and so is the try's. !!! I have reduced sodium and that has kept blood pressure now back to normal and that I can handle with no problem . So , it has been hard for me to watch carbs , fats , fiber and and sodium ,,,,, I gained 11 pounds when I tried watching all this ! So I really need help
from some one who knows what I am going threw and hints as to how they handle it all . : )
I have walked , and like you , its about 30 min at a time . I have a bad knee and hip from a car accident I was in three years ago , from which I almost lost my leg . So guess we are birds of a feather . hahah
I am enjoying doing up the menus and keeping it at about 25 to 30 points on the weight watcher point system and it seems to work out well , down the road I will do more of my own subs , but right now , to follow this menu plan that Sparks has and groc. list and receipes ,it is a plan for me that I can easily get going on .
I am going to go wall paper at my moms now , and will walk there , not far ,,,, : ) it is nice for a change today in Maine ,,, and very welcome !
You have a great day , to nice to sew today for me !
I may see my little grandson's later and that will be great also . They are about 3 miles from here .
I have two .
talk again soon and thanks for writting a reply to me !!!
You can do anything you want to do in life , you just never give up , always believe in your self !
