Hello everyone, My name is Joy also. I am new to this team but not to Spark People. I lost my internet service several years ago so could not use Spark People. My husband and I are full time R.V'ers. I have gained 43 pounds and must lose it for sake of my health. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure over ten years ago. I also have Osteoarthritis, High LDL, COPD and am Pre Diabetic. I must admit that I have not been good about watching my weight this past few years, but know that I will feel better and have less pain when I do lose this extra 43 pounds. Because of my health issues I am limited on what exercises I can do. However I can and do walk every day accept Sundays and I do pool aerobics 2 days a week. I also do light gardening and Qi gong 2 times a week. I also do light weight strengthening 2 times a week. I am looking forward to being on this team.

to one of many homes I have here in SparkPeople land!!! Right off the bat, I'm going to let you know, that we don't DIEt here, as you testified yourself, you've failed. We're all in our own lifestyle change journey. We know that this is what we have to do, for the rest of our lives, to stay healthier and live longer. Go ahead and start tracking your food and exercises. I know it may seem strange at first, as when I started tracking, I was horrified as to what I was really putting in my body!!! I knew that I needed to get help and get it QUICK. My Curves trainer sent me to SP, and !!! It's such a FANTASTIC site, with all kinds of information for you, just for the picking of peoples brains, or you just exploring. When you do start tracking, don't forget those little nibbles that your children give you, and the ones you do, when testing the meal you're preparing. Don't forget to track your drinks, too. There is hidden danger, in what you drink. Be careful of the hidden sodium and calories. I believe that you'll stick to your lifestyle change, this time. Don't forget, if you need anything, just HOLLER and somebody will be there to give you a hand up!

and make sure you participate in a couple of teams as well as tracking all you do and eat and drink. The friends I have found on this site are the best.

Hello everyone, My name is Joy it has been a little over a year that I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure.I could use a lot of help to keep me on the path of success. I have tried all diets alone and find I can't do it alone anymore so here I am fighting the good fight with some friends.
