Hi I'm Paula from Salt Lake City, Utah. This will be my 7th .. 5% challenge. I started with the Determined Daisies in the Spring of 2013-Winter of 2013 lost almost 50 pounds. Had to take a Spark Break due to having double knee replacement surgery in April 2014 and after gaining approximately 25 pound back in 4 month of not being able to be active for almost a full 4 month due to intense knee pain prior to the surgery.

I have now gained all of my 50 lb loss back. I still struggle with intense pain issues. I am becoming more active again as I know once I get this weight off my knees will be 97% better than they were prior to the surgery. I am carrying around 220 pounds more than I should be so that adds 3x's that on my joints. ahhh!!

So happy to be returning to the 5% challenge team where we accomplish great goals! By supporting each other throughout our journeys. And working hard to attain our goals. . .

My name is Paula I live in Utah = MST

hi! I am Linda from B.C. Canada and have not lost weight on the last challenge,now I have a bigger challenge. I need to start high fat dairy to raise my cholesterol as it is below the minimum needed to function. My good cholesterol is too low also.I was told all high fat dairy,salmon and no almonds as they turn into bad fat in the body,walnuts instead as they have the same omega as salmon,but have cholesterol that I need. I was told to add lots of salt, so I added a teaspoon daily to keep my blood pressure at 127/80.Without salt it can go to 80/50.So now 32% fat,18% protein and 50% carbs.starting yesterday.

I have pleurisy, 2 types of anemia, macrocytic anemia, Iron deficiency anemia, from blood transfusions with wrong antibodies, causes blood to replace daily instead of 100 days, chronic pneumonia, pleurisy, chronic kidney disease, a partially collapsed lung, low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years. Now formed scar tissue.I am 56 years old. I had cervical cancer 6 years ago, no signs last 4 years as well. I have new blood clots now,2019.I am on P.S.T. time zone.
