What you need to do is stick with one thread on a big team, usually the same people will be on that thread and they will give each other the support that they need. On some teams their is a leader who looks over one or more threads to help people along.

I also have several of your problems and have trouble keeping numbers where they want them, I have had this problem all my life though. I also need to lose over 100 pounds and am having trouble staying healthy enough to do it. Right now I have hurt my knee and am supposed to stay off of it, keep it elevated, take the pain meds (they usually put me to sleep), and wear my brace until it heals. I hurt it on Dec. 7, 2010 and it has not healed yet.

Tell us what you have done so far and we will help you any way we can. To start with SPARKS the best thing to do is to use the food and fitness trackers.

Afternoon everyone.

Just joined this group - I am concerned due to the size of the group that it could be difficult to get to know anyone here and to get the encouragement due to the size (guess I prefer smaller groups) but am willing to give it a try.

You can go to my sparkpage to read more about me - but in summary:
63 years old
Have a lot of unhealthy things going on - high blood pressure, pre diabetic, fatty liver, high cholesterol.
Last doctor visit (November) was told that with my age / sex / weight that the numbers show that I am at a 19% risk of having a major heart attack in the next 5 years. - Not nice.
Had an eposide with one of my eyes last year - the specialist I saw this week said she believes it was actually a very small stroke. Not nice
Am on a program as of January called Vascular Intolerance Program - help with preventing of a heart attack - told yesterday that most people that go on this program get there after having a heart attack - but now the doctors are sending people that re pre heart attack in order to get the help to prevent the attack.

Big thing is to get my cholesterol down. Am on meds for it and high blood pressure - seems to help but the cholesterol is not coming down as they want it to. So need to make more changes - exercise and better eating habits.

Would like to talk to others in the same shape - I have a lot of weight to lose (about 150 pounds) so would like to connect with anyone dealing with lots of weight to lose and the changes they are making.

Thank you, it will take me quite a while to get over this, it will put me out for several days, then hang around for days. Got two pieces of good new today, Gary got his income taxes back and we got a box of new books to go through.

Woke up this morning with a cold, allergies, or my asmatha acting up again, maybe a combination of any or all of them. I told you I wasn't far behind.

Try diet and exercise first for most things, do not beat yourself up if you have to go on meds though.

Hi everyone,

Spiritseeker, I'm sure all of your hard work will pay off at the Dr.s Office. Be sure to let us know the out come. emoticon

Sandy, I sure hope that a healthy diet and exercise will bring the Cholesterol Down. I know all about allergies. Mine were haywire this weekend. emoticon emoticon

Candy, I'm glad to hear your knee is doing better and that Gary is well enough to go back to work. emoticon

Karrie, There are many tools and and all kinds of information on SP that will help you reach your goals. One thing I started was a bowl of oatmeal and a fruit for breakfast at least 3 days a week. Try to drink 8 cups of water a day. I don't drink water and this was the hardest thing for me to do. I bought a large sports bottle that holds 3 cups of water and drink 3 a day. It helped. Try to eat healthy as often as you can or cut the amount you eat when you can't eat healthy. I wish you success on your SP journey. emoticon emoticon

Me? I'm great! Down another pound. I know it's not much but every one counts. Down from 170 to 169. emoticon emoticon

Hello, all. Doctor's office called me yesterday with the results of my blood tests. Slightly elevated and they wanted to put me on medication. Asked if I could try and get it down with diet and exercise. Will need to go back in three months. Bought the book "Cholesterol Down" from an ebook seller and started reading it. Went out and bought some cereals, soy foods, almonds and almond milk. My allergies have me dragging and I haven't had the energy to exercise this week. I did good last week. Maple, oak, elm, ash and pine are in the air according to the weather man., oh my.

Jeanine, I'm sorry to hear your Mom has pneumonia. I know that for a person of your Moms age it is a very dangerous thing. I'll keep her, you and your family in our prayers. I hope she regains her health and strength and that she is not in pain. Take care.

Candy, I'm glad to hear that you're getting the help you need. How is your knee? I hope the meds are helping and that you're not in much pain. Is Gary still going to work? Take care and keep us posted.

Hope everyone is doing well. Haven't been on the board for awhile, my mom who is 93 has pneumonia and I've been spending time with her. She is in a nursing home and not doing well. So between work, seeing her and trying to exercise it is difficult. Hope you are all doing well and taking it easy. I'm still staying on track and hope I can keep this up. Take care all.

I also am homebound with a hurt knee, I know what you mean about getting out. I go to a center for groups, I have cut that in half so I can take care of my knee. Getting on here and being able to make contact with all kinds of people helps a lot.

Yesterday started out great. I won 500 SparkGoodie Points.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My husband had to go to a Dr. Apt. and I went along for the 3 hour one way ride. It felt good to get out and away from the house for a few hours. I love my Mother In Law very much, but need some alone time with hubby. We are her care givers and live with her so she can stay in her home. Her daughter and her husband came over and stayed with her while we were away. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Plus, today they are taking her for her Kidney Dialysis Treatment. That means Hubby and I will have most of the day tomorrow as well. It's almost like a second Honeymoon. Ha Ha

In a nut shell these last two days have been great Great! I feel refreshed and ready to get back to Home Health Care. emoticon

Joining SparkPeople has helped a lot as well. Although I can't leave the house, I can always Sign In and and check my Nutrition and Exercise, see what is happening with the team pages, check my Friend Feed or any number of other things. Thank you!

Good for you. Gary is forgetting things, he is getting more and more feeling in his hand though. I am going to talk to the doctor about his forgetting things on Monday. We have not heard anything about our intake so our case managers are going to check into a program they have for us.

I have recently restarted taking niacin (250mg) once a day - non flushing kind. It is supposed to be good for raising HDL and lowering LDL. It is also supposed to lower triglycerides.

Found this - thought I would pass it on.

Memo From God

I am God.
Today I will be handling all
of your problems. Please remember that
I do not need your help.

If life happens to deliver a situation to
you that you cannot handle, do not
attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the
SFGTD (something for God to do) box.
It will be addressed in My time, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold unto it.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic; don't
despair. There are people in this world for
whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work;
Think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad;
Think of the person who has never known what it's
like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend;
Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve
hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car breakdown, leaving you miles away
from assistance; Think of the paraplegic who would
love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror;
Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she
had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and
pondering what is life all about, asking
what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those
who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's
bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities;


Remember, things
could be worse. You could be them!!!!!

I found out what I did to my knee on Tuesday, Feb,22 as I watched Gary have a stroke right before my eyes. He is fine and back home, he even has gone back to work. He has a slight limp on his right side and he has trouble grasping things with his right hand. My knee has a brusied bone, and I badly strained my MCL, I need to stay off of it, keep it elevated, take the pain meds,, and wear the brace until it heals. I am going to start back with SAPRKS on a daily basis from now on though.

Guess what,
What,

I was reading "CHOLESTEROL DOWN" and I found out that when you have your cholesterol count taken, the numbers are for MEN.

Did you know that MEN's HDL is the wonderful greater thatn 39 and WOMEN's HDL is greather than 50.
Hmmmm, something to consider.

Now I have to go research the LDL and the Trig.

Well I went to the doctor today and here it goes. My good cholesterol was 50, my bad cholesterol was 175, blood pressure was 120/71, and lost 4 lbs since the last time I saw my doctor. So I'm going to keep working on this and keep going down. Thanks for all your support. Hope everyone is doing great.

Hi all, I just joined this team. I've been on cholesterol meds for several years.

Mfloyd - my doctor said to take Niacin in addition to my lovastatin to raise my HDL. The lovastatin has been working fine to lower overall cholesterol & LDL, but the HDL still wasn't has high as she wanted. I take no-flush Niacin one a day. 500 mg. The "no-flush" version prevents the "hot flash" than can be caused by regular Niacin.

and ...... i need help in another area.... maybe this question is for "recipes"....

I have an issue with 'fat'. (in my food-that's one of the reasons's why my cholesterol is higher than i would like)....

One of the good ways to take the cholesterol down is to take some/most of the fat out of your food.

well, no matter how much fat i take out (and put spice in) im not satisfied. Im still hungry because of the satiating factor of the fat. The quantity aint helping me. I know I am to eat only so much, but when i cook somehting with lower fat, my eating spirals out of bounds.

I feel like I have a fat addition. help me please.

Really hope your knee is better, I know what it is like to have a bad knee. I have one and it is hard. Right now there is nothing they can do until I lose more weight. Gained 1/2 pound this week. Not sure why, but I'm not upset. Go to the doctor next week. Just wish a lot of luck my way. Hope everyone is doing okay.

Hi Everyone, I've been with SP for about a week. I truly love this program. Even if I didn't have High Cholesterol I would still join. Unfortunally, I do have High Cholesterol and don't want to start meds. First, I would rather try to lower it by watching my nutrition and exercise. My total C. is 245 - the HDL is 53, and the LDL is 152. So, I need to work on the bad stuff. Also, I'm going to try to lower my Triglycerides. They are just under the normal mark. My Dr. is sure that if I make a habit of watching what and how much I eat and exercising regulary that I will be back on track in little time. Wish me luck.

I can do this - and have fun while I'm at it - thanks to all my Spark Friends.

Remembering and praying for our Military and their Families.

Just got back from the doctor where they took about three gallons of blood, lol. Guess I will know the results in a few days. I have also managed to gain two pounds in three months:-( I think it's the heavy clothes - she said hopefully.

It's what you learn AFTER you know it all that's important.

I am a bit discouraged myself. Here are my most recent lab results:

Total - 196
HDL - 37 (keep trying to get this one up!!)
LDL - 108
TRI - 255!!!! This is what I am working on.

It seems strange that my LDL would be great, but my TRI are high and total is within range (borderline).

*sigh*. I get re-tested in a few months and will post an update.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
