I think that's great, good for you Sirr. I'm hoping when I see my doctor on the 27th she can give me some hope to reduce my meds.

I have just changed doctors so when I see her I will ask her if she would monitor me to see if I can reduce the amount of meds that I take. Good for you Ellisa.

I'm down to my lowest dose. :-)

What I learned the hard way was to pray about every single item of food and drink... asking the Lord if it was something I can eat. For example: "May I eat strawberries?" His reply, "only a small amount." "How about raspberries?" His reply, "no."

What happened is that all the foods I was sensitive or allergic to was removed and the inflammation went down. I lost about 1 - 2 pounds a week!

If you don't know how to hear the Lord's voice, just go get food allergy testing done.

I wish you luck. I lost close to 40 lbs and yet my doctor will not take any meds away. A real bummer!

DEFINITELY !!!
I am 70 years young now and off Diabetes medication and High Blood pressure medication.

I am using cholesterol medication to get my triglycerides down. Family history of Cardiac problems.

I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetes at 66 years young and I found the spark BOOK looking for answers at Barnes and Noble.
I am down over 50 pounds, I walk fast with others without huffing and puffing and I can walk easily 5 miles at a time with friends. We do it often 2 or three time a week, it is easier with a buddy for me, it makes it go faster and much more pleasant . We walk in the winter in Maine also.
FINDING THAT BOOK was a victory for me I had tried all kinds of diets to help me to get off meds and b oy I am grateful. Pat in Maine.
All this is a Major improvement

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.
Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.

not yet, working to get off or lower dosage

A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it and realizing it's not going to happen overnight.

Oh, yeah! I have been off my BP med since last October due to the weight loss and exercise. It's wonderful to have one less prescription to deal with.
