I rejoice with you. Improved health is a wonderful result of your new SP journey. Three months ago when I joined, I was so fearful of 'dieting' again. These 3 months with SP have taught me so much about healthy living that I really think this is a forever change. Thank you so much for sharing. You gave me goose pimples!

was wonderful!! By his scales I've lost 11 pounds, which he said would be about right when I told him I weigh naked...lol, he took me off one of my bp meds, told me he was impressed with my bp readings, my weight loss, dedication and exercising. He put me on prednisone for 5 days to see if it would calm down my fibro flare up that has been going on for 3 weeks now and told me other than that to continue doing what I'm doing. He advised me whatever I do, don't stop the exercise because that is imperative to my fibro and bp. He told me that I would hit a wall sometimes with my fibro but try my best to get some type of exercise in because it will pass. All in all it was a great visit!!
But the best thing of all was this: he asked me how I was doing with SP and I told him I was still here and loving it. He told me he was glad and that since my visit in Feb and telling him all about it, he researched it himself and has told several patients about Sparkpeople!!!!!! I was elated!!!! That just made my week!!!
