Welcome Helen. I was amazed too at the foods I thought where good for me. And just how really bad some of the other foods I like to eat where. My BK breakfast I liked was about 63 grams of fat. No wonder I felt so bad all the time. Chris
Hi Helen to the Oregon Team. Sounds like you are on the right track, you are soooo right you really have to look out for those other baddies in the diet.
Hope you will enjoy the team, and get out of it all the help you want, we are all here for us to get the most out of it. Hugs Rosalyn
Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance. It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Helen and I live in the Beaverton/Tanasborne Area. I am married with two beautiful children (Emily & JP) and my husband and I are both doing spark together! YA!!! I have been so excited about spark and have been learning a lot from the different boards and resource center! I can't believe all of the sodium and fat in food - WOW!!! You get told "watch your calorie intake" well... unfortunatly that isn't the only thing you have to watch. With so many items that are "low" in calories but, extremely high in either fat, sodium or some other item that we really don't need to be absorbing in our bodies, it is just an eye opener to be able to see this all listed for you on spark! I best go get the little ones in bed. Hugs to you all!!! Helen
