Very true on finding foods that work. I was eating more fruits than I would in a life time and not losing weight. Sugar, even natural sugar just loves to stick to my bones LOL. Thank you so much for the recipe and tips!! I do exercise nearly daily, the struggle is finding different foods on a budget that I can make at home. Made a yummy turkey meatloaf from a recipe I found on Spark last night :)

walk 10,000 steps a day.

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 36 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 162 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

I found that exercise really helps my blood pressure. Would suggest 30 minutes a day!

Hi my name is Lois. I apologize for the delay in introducing myself, I'm still trying to get the hang of this site :)

I have not been diagnosed with hypertension by a doctor because I don't have health insurance. However, about 2 months ago after feeling ill for some time, I had my bp checked and it was close to 180/95. I immediately put myself on a low sodium diet which I monitor closely and a low cal diet and exercise daily.

It took about 2 weeks to get my numbers lower, but I now average about 125/80 on a good day and 135/88 on a bad day, which still isn't so bad considering. I won't even begin to tell you how bad my diet was before this all came about. I'm sure you can imagine!

I'm having a difficult time finding low sodium recipes on a budget and wondered if you had any suggestions?

-Lois
