I am new to Sparkpeople and just checking everything out. I have joined a few Spark teams, but, when I saw your post, I was so impressed. I too want to lose at least half my body weight. I am currently 330. I wonder how did you do this, how long did it take. I am hoping to meet my goal by next summer.

I had a sinus operation in February and my costs exceeded $2,000 above insurance.

yes and it seems that insurance costs more each year, co-pays increase, and the choices decrease.

DO RISING HEALTH CARE COSTS WORRY YOU?????

Yes, it's a big source of stress for me
Yes, a little bit
Not really, I'm pretty healthy
Other

Yes, a little bit, we have a good health insurance company that have been able to keep the cost down. I know others aren't as fortunate.

I don't have any special plans other than to take my granddaughter to the parade and maybe wander around the park some. My one daughter who throws the bbq's is moving 2 hours away today so we aren't doing any special dinner. That's okay with me though. Nice relaxing day.

DO YOU PLAN TO COOK HEALTHIER VERSIONS OF YOUR 4TH OF JULY FAVORITES??

Yes
No
Please share if you would like to


My part of the picnic food is pasta salad and I will try to slim it down some. Usually I do try to make healthier dishes. There are some foods though that my family is particular about being fixed the "old" way!
