In January I started working to change my eating habits to healthier ones. To do this I had to learn how to cook. This has proven challenging as I am cooking for one.
I started with a site that taught me to meal plan. I had already used the American Heart Association diet plan, so I incorporated it into the meal plan they offered for Heart Health.
I lost 12 pounds without really trying except to watch my calories. In July I went on a two week binge and gained 4 pounds back.

That is when I decided enough was enough. I went online looking for a support group and discovered SparkPeople.com. I joined on 7/29 and found the site and people amazing.

Happy DAISY OF THE DAY Day!

You and I seem to have a lot of goals in common! I even use the AHA Cookbook, mainly for my husband who had open heart surgery a few years ago but it is also helpful for my high b/p and cholesterol and triglycerides! My goal is also 150.

We have gotten used to a lot less salt! Although, there are a few things that still have to have a little salt. As Job said, "Can something tasteless be eaten without salt. Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?" (6:6)
