Thank you all!!

I've done ok this week. Cooked out of the cookbook. Made meals even my hubby would eat. I think I'm down a few pounds but that's probably because my BP meds have a diuretic in them. Of course no more sodas and drinking more water might have contributed some.

I'm enjoying the recipes and all the info in this cookbook.

:)

emoticon Pam,
emoticon back!
Your instincts have brought you to the right place. This is a very active team, and much collective knowledge.
Many of us have been in your situation. It does, however, shed a different light on things when your health is visibly affected. That is what brought me to Spark. I wasn't very active for the first few years, but once I began to get over those fears of posting, things changed dramatically.
I understand what you mean by it seeming your entire focus is on food, and planning. I lived that way for years, and still do, but am learning from continued reminders from Sparkers that it is a life journey with all types of ups and downs.
I wish you well as you continue to work towards your chosen life goals. emoticon

Hello,

I'm Pam and have been on and off of sparkpeople.com for years. Had a lot of success about two years ago but fell off my wagon a year and a half ago. Lost some ground. Not completely starting over, but bad enough.

High blood pressure has brought me back. Got pretty scared and dashed off to the doctor. I'm on medication now and have to watch my salt intake pretty closely. I remember I had the sparkpeople cookbook and got it off the shelf, dusted off the cover and now I'm trying my best to make the best of it. Trying not to be scared but just take it a day at a time.

I can't exercise for three weeks. I can take a daily walk, but that's it. In three weeks, back to the doctor to see if the medication is doing it's thing and if I feel okay she may clear me for more intensive exercise...

First time in my life my HEALTH has kept me from doing what I need to be doing. I know I can do this, but I was overwhelmed today. I felt like I spent my whole day thinking about food. Not hungry, just trying to figure out what TO eat that was OKAY to eat...I guess like everything in life, if it were easy everybody would be doing it and would be thin.

I've struggled to find my place on the boards. Have never really connected with anyone. I'm hoping the cookbook group might be the one for me.

Looking forward to getting to know you all....

Pam
