OMGoodness - how discouraging - you're battling with some health issues and then have them aggravated because of the meds. UGH!!
Well, SparkPeople is indeed a very effective plan and place to be. It's been a tremendous influence on my lifestyle change and I am currently celebrating great healthy 'numbers'. Not totally into the best weight range but the rest is in line and all will be good.
YOU Can Do It and small goals were the best way for me to start - plus I track EVERYTHING - a super value tool.
Congratulations on making this choice and the success YOU WILL HAVE
