Well here I am again.

Monday, August 31, 2020

I'm no stranger to Sparkpeople. I have been a member for years but not active. I received my health report today from my doctor. I'm border line diabetic, Triglycerides are a little high, have high blood pressure and obese. I also have arthritis and Fibromyalga so I'm limited to the exercise I can do.

I'm not good at planning meals. Breakfast and lunch are are the hardest meals to eat right. I don't even know what to eat at these meals that is healthy. I hate to cook so I want something fast and easy.

My doctor told me to start out with chair exercise. I hurt and feel so bad it's hard to make myself do it. But, I'm going to do my best.

Ok, here I go.

    emoticon I joined Sparks nearly 13 yo at a horrible 214# and I'm 70 now and at 136# but because I found an anti-aging doctor who put me on Metformin (my blood sugar was 115 and diabetes starts at 126) and it is a 100 now. I'm on Bydureon, Acarbose, Nature Thyroid, Progesterone, Lisinopril, MSM, etc. He has an interview on Youtube:


    On Youtube listen to British therapist, Marisa Peers, as she's 63 and been in practice for 33 years.

    I love the information from Robert Cywes, M.D. who is a weight loss surgeon from Jacksonville, Fl and did weight 300# and he tells how he talks his patients out of WLS and finds out why they are sugar/carb addicts. He is just really interesting to listen to and I recommend him.

    I definitely don't want to cook for breakfast either! Maybe look into overnight oats (you can make many days ahead of time!). I typically eat yogurt with granola and blueberries, which takes a bit more effort than overnight oats but I like it better!

    I've been back for three months after 10 years off. Illness took me away and illness brought me back. I am the same with breakfast and lunch so I make single serving meals to keep from grabbing everything in sight. I don't want typical breakfast food so I have a ground beef and vegetable soup/stew. Its less than 200 calories and I like it. If I had to eat "diet" food every day I would binge. Welcome back.

    I am realizing SparkPeople has all I need and more. Tried WW again. It is $44 a month. So back to spark. Day one. So far so good 😊

    Sounds like me but I'm back with determination. Can't hardly stand or walk for long. So exercise is definitely limited .I don't cook need meal plans. But know we both can do this. Good luck and hang in there.
