Hi, my name is Brenda and I'm new to the group, but not to SP. I joined in June of 2007, then became ill and wasn't able to do much. It has only been in the past 5 or 6 weeks that I have returned and really started checking everything out.
I have diastolic heart failure, depression, borderline high cholesterol (just a couple points before my doctor says it's time for meds for it), GERD, overactive bladder, pre-diabetes, arthritis, and edema, as well as being morbidly obese.
Like many other people I got quite a shock at the amount of sodium I was consuming every day. Love that nutrition tracker!! Now I have to learn a whole new way of cooking, and I think it will be so much easier to learn along with the rest of you.
