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.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

Welcome & good luck! I have all those issues too & I was able to lose 45 pounds & get healthier in the process following Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat To Live plan & using Spark Peoples tools!
Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels.
Welcome wishing you well on your journey

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. :-)
