LOL, Kelly! I was actually fairly good at the State Fair this year, though I couldn't resist an elephant ear! I ate mine and part of my daughters!! Other than that, I only had a very small virgin pina colada that I shared with the youngest, and a pineapple whip cone. I think that's all I ate!

Hi Annie, I think we've already "met" - welcome to Healthy Hearts.

For me, weight gain is usually water retention when I have too much sodium. Or, of course, there's the obvious causes, like today, where we went to the Maryland State Fair. Well, you know what State Fair food is like. None of it could even faintly be classified as good for you. But hey, it's only once a year. Now all I have to do is lose the three pounds I've managed to gain in one day... and I didn't even have any funnel cake!!

No, Annie, I definitely didn't have any of my medications doing that to me! That's terrible. Hope you are doing well!

Rhonda,

I gained over sixty pounds in less than six weeks, over two-thirds of that was while I was in the hospital and each time I was on no food by mouth, so it was generally ice chips, and if I was lucky broth. Just mainly trying to understand what they do not seem to be able to give me an answer for.

Be well,
Annie

No, Annie, I don't think any of my medications caused weight gain. It was my lack of exercise for the most part!! Once I got our diet under control and started exercising regularly, the weight started coming off!

Rhonda,

Thank you for the welcome!~!!

Have you had any problems gaining weight from medication?

I cannot run at this time, light headed and dizzy from medications I am on and shortness of breath - that no one seems to worry about but myself.

::She laughs:: I have always liked running, since I was in high school and ran cross country, one day I will run again... I am looking forward to meeting that goal next year.

Be well,
Annie

Welcome, Annie! I wish you the best of luck in your health and your weightloss journey!

I had a heart attack and bypass surgery 17 months ago, and I am to the place where I can now run a little bit. It's funny, because I always hated running, but my life has changed so much! I am far from doing a 9 min mile, though!

Hello everyone,

I began my journey with Spark People last week and up until now I have just been lurking and looking around, but I decided it was best to do an introduction.

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Annie; I am Forty-three years old, divorced with a Ten-year-old son, who I often refer to as "The Wee One."


I live in Seattle, Washington, I have lived in several other places also Arizona, California, Hawaii, Mississippi, Oregon and Texas, but I have always come home. ::She smiles::


Last October I was sixty pounds lighter, I was running a mile in nine minutes and the healthiest I had been in over ten years. Then, for some strange and odd reason that my Doctor's are still scratching their head at... I had a heart attack. Recently I have gained the weight that I had lost because of medication, but I am here to get that off and then some!~!!


I look forward to reading your messages, getting support and meeting some new friends and having a good time in the Spark People group, without offending some. ::She smirks::

I guess I do not have to tell any of you that I have a dry sense of humor and I can be a bit shrewd...
