Just hang in there with this, it works.
We all have bad days.

NancyPat, We are so glad you have joined us. Some of us are keeping track of cholesterol and sodium. The food tracker will keep track of those for you. You can post them on one of the forums on this page. We try to give each other moral support. good luck~ Glenda
But not new to SP...will be 3 years the end of this month. I'll be 65 in April, and have been on BP meds for 15 years. Just started cholesterol meds last year.
I had gone inactive on SP, but last summer dr. discovered I needed triple bypass surgery (no heart damage, just badly clogged arteries). Following the surgery on 9/11/09, I have become more attentive to the need for some major overhaul in my eating and exercise habits.
My major stumbling stones are: overly fond of high- fat sweets and salty foods, inconsistency in planning meals and executing the plan, and the stress of raising an angry 13yo DGD who targets me with the anger she feels for her mother. We have had her for almost 9 years. She was beaten by mom's BF when she was very small. I tend to eat mindlessly when stressed.
BUT I CAN overcome all this. My health and quality of life is worth the effort.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Dear God, please help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me that You have not permitted, and that if You have permitted it, You are right with me as I make my way over, under, around, or through it.
