Definitely a challenge:

Woke up with legs so swollen I could barely walk, lots of new water blisters -- seeping. Legs just plain hurting.....

So I spent most of the day laying down with feet elevated. Swelling has gone down a bit by evening.

I really miss my old recliner. It was old, (not in years but in wear) and falling apart, but the foot rest could go very high and did a great job of "draining" my legs.... And because the feet were so elevated, it didn't take all that much time, either.

This new recliner, the foot rest doesn't go up beyond straight (heart level.) I wish I could afford to go looking for a different (new) one....

One good thing about the cold weather keeping us inside is that it gives a an opportunity to catch up on things we have been putting off.

My challenge is getting organized enough to plan my menus ahead of time so that I don't wind up eating things that are convenient but bad for me.

Can anyone suggest a website where I can get help with menu planning for IR/GI? Thanks.

Challenges: Getting enough carbs when hiking without eating too many. I haked for 6.5 hours yesterday and ate a Chunkc Bar while doing it. My blood sugar was a little high, but not bad.
It's hard to find the balance while getting lots of exercise.

CHALLENGES: Obviously my weight.

Being told its genetic just doesn't set well with me. There's got to be a way around this dilemma of metabolic dysfunction, insulin resistance, especially when nutrition, activity and positive psychology are not effective.

All my life my weight has ruled me and my enjoyment in living. I am weary from the struggle and then mostly the lack of success in the last 6 years due to menopause, thyroid and prediabetes. I thought my efforts in my younger years were to prevent any issues like I am experiencing now. But genetics played a cruel joke...

Right now I don't feel blessed...

Challenge
I have a friend coming for Easter and I hope to feed us healthy meals, not kill my progress
with snacks, and not limit her to my diet plan,so shopping is going to be the challenge
However I have read a lot of the info here and made a shopping list, with some low carb
Sparkpeople recipes in hand.
Hope it becomes a blessing.

Thanks for your encouragemnet. I am better on Mon. Yesterday I ended up sleeping in the back of the car. Sleeping all afternoon and going to bed early. My hubby is the pastor, so I had no way home. For some reason I keep having reactions one after the other. At least my weight is holding. Does your mom live close to you hlthyliving ?

I hope you feel better soon bebelouidaho!

Blessings: Mom's second cancer scare (thyroid) this year was caught early again and is entirely unrelated to the other two (uterine about four years ago and breast several months ago - double mastectomy). So feeling blessed things were caught so early.

Challenges: Not having been able to eat as well as I would like, plus now having to deal with a major sinus infection! But, things will work out!

Blessing: My internet is up for a little bit today. (Having continual outages...UGH!) Was able to retrieve a few email messages.

Challenges: Trying to keep son busy, with hubby gone on training classes this week. He wants to do some fun activities online and internet is shaky at best. Still not getting everything I am supposed to via email.

Challenges: Hubby has training this week, out of town. :-( Mom has a couple doctor's appointments, which won't be too bad. Mainly just check-ups. Though keeping son's anxiety level down about daddy being gone for a few days, a definite challenge!

blessings: my hubby is very supportive of my health issues, my weight control battles, and everything else in my life

challenges: my same supportive hubby cannot refuse me if I am having any kind of craving. He loves to please and thinks I need to make the decisions. He's right, but I don't always choose rightly....

If life is to have meaning, and if God's will is to be done, all of us have to accept who we are and what we are, and give it back to God, and thank Him for the way he made us. What I am is God's gift to me; what I do with it is my gift to Him Warren W. Wiersbe
