Getting Motivated

I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure and need to eat healthier and lose weight. I've known for a long time that being overweight would increase my chances of developing high blood pressure and diabetes (which both run in my family). Well, now I have them both and I will lose this weight in order to live longer.

6/17/08 - Update: Diabetes is reversed after 3 months! My doctor said to just keep doing what I'm doing and they'll check bloodwork every 3 months. This is the best news I could have gotten. SP has made all the difference for me.

First off let me say excellent job re: your progress including reversing your diabetes! Fantastic!!!

Secondly I had to do some searching to find your page. I was curious about the adjustments you made to a recipe. I believe it was the Garden Vegetable Frittata... when I read the recipe I was thinking to myself as I read it that I could sub egg beaters for the eggs, skim or non fat milk for the milk, no salt for the salt, etc. and I dropped down and read your comment. You did just what I was thinking of doing.

How'd your version work out? Was it good? Do you have the nutritional values available? If so will you share that information?

If you don't have any of the information that's not a problem either, I can adjust it as well and load the information onto the site. I just thought I'd take a shortcut if it was available.

Have a fun, safe and great Christmas and New Year.

Dennis

I started SparkPeople over a year ago, and you posted to me because of my OSU logo. I have not been on SP in quite awhile, but am trying to get back into the swing again. I saw your progress and I'm really proud of you! That is awesome, hope you are doing well.

Hey Betsy...
Just thinking of you, we haven't seen you posting for awhile.
Hope life is being kind to you and family.
