Welcome Carol. I am really pleased to meet you. Health issues are so important and that is one reason that I am so satisfied with SP.

I have been through two bypasses and tomorrow they are putting in a pacemaker. I am at goal weight but age is making it difficult to achieve optimum strength and balance results.

Again, WELCOME ABOARD.

I have been able to not only lose weight but significantly change my body composition from high-fat, low-muscle to 21% body fat (and still dropping) with several pounds of muscle gained by eating a paleo-style low-carb diet in spite of low-thyroid. In fact my thyroid levels are much improved after making this change in eating style. emoticon

Hi my name is Carol and for years I have tried to get my weight under control. Healthy eating is not an issue but because I have under-active Thyroid in addition to high blood pressure and slightly over 40. So I have joined Spark People in hopes of finally balancing my weight and losing 50+ pounds. Fingers crossed. :-)
