When these triglyceride levels are high, HDL (good) cholesterol levels tend to be low, a combination that is associated with an increased risk for heart disease. Losing just 10% of your body weight (25 pounds for someone who weights 250 pounds), can improve your cholesterol levels. <BR> Roz.

Is it true? Anyway, I want your input on what we should do with our Olympia Team. <BR> <BR> You can read my blog today for a more complete description of the situation. The vision I have of our Olympia Team is that we would have a social get-together monthly then end with a walk together for those who want to. Also, I'd like to see the Team as a way for members to make friends (support) and get Wa... Sat, 28 May 2016 12:19:49 EST Magic Tracker http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x14224x64121381 My WW group has what they call a magic tracker. It is a little book which is passed from member to member to record what we eat and how much exercise during a one week period. It is purely voluntary and I have done it in the past with a nice loss each week. This week I took it home again. I must say it is very motivating and an incentive to be careful and to be active.

I am 70 and for past eighteen months have been caring for my husband who became paraplegic after a spine operation. Unfortunately my good eating habits went out of the window after that though I make sure my husband has healthy meals. So I'm joining Spark People to get back on track. I go to a senior fitness class once a week but feel I should be doing more exercise. I belong to the Women's Institute and have had wonderful support fro...

I did get the frame up for my greenhouse but my seedlings will have to remain indoors under lights for a week or two more until nights are a bit warmer. <BR> My plan for today is to go to a class on balance.

I joined Spark People in March of this year and have lost 60 pounds so far. I try to walk some each day and do keep track of my steps. Most of my weight loss has been through diet and I appreciate Spark Recipes also. One of our most important tools is to think positive. We can do this! Have a great day.

I'm having a tough time staying on target. Every Sunday I'm determined to get on target and may for a couple of days and then I get behind on tracking my food and I just don't do it. I really need to lose weight because of back problems but it's just kinda hard right now. Well, thanks for listening and I intend to do better this week. <em>30</em> Sun, 4 Nov 2012 19:48:53 EST WooHoo if you Huddled today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x14224x50583941 <em>244</em> Sun, 28 Oct 2012 10:18:17 EST New to this team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x14224x50415967 Need lots of encouragment.
