Welcome, Red, and best wishes for your success. You've already accomplished a major feat by quitting smoking. That's incredible! Good for you!

I've only been here a month. The best advice I received as a newbie was to use the nutrition tracker ASAP. It really helps you see where improvements can be made. You can set it to track things like sugar, sodium, potassium too which is esp. helpful for some medical conditions.

A word of caution just in case: I've had to be careful of spending too much time sitting and reading all the great things on SP instead of getting up and moving around. And now I better walk the dog before it gets too hot outside!

In the great shipyard of life it helps to be a little dinghy.

Hi, I am Red Hoffman and I believe I developed a weight problem the minute I left the active military in 1989. I gained probably 100 lbs over the next year/year and a half. Depression played a factor. Being diagnosed with a heart condition played a factor. My love of eating good food played the biggest factor of all. BUT, the bottom line is, I am in control of what happens. I was recently taken to the hospital by ambulance for dizziness, inability to stand and powerful headaches. My blood sugars were between 350 and 450...and it caused me to spend 5 long says in the hospital. Five days to think...and to get motivated. Upon my discharge, I quit smoking...cold turkey, and began to devise a plan to lose weight and get my glucose under control. Joining this site will be a big aspect of that. Keeping track of not only what I have eaten, but also, getting ideas on what I SHOULD be eating (suggestions) will keep me focused. Send me a message if anyone would like to know more....or if they can keep my motivation going. Thanks and good luck everyone.
