  • I seem to go backwards..but understandable. I started gaining weight June of 2011, 203-217, then I had a heart attack september of last year 217-223.
    PAD stents/kidney stents/ and in June of this year I had PVD a triple by-pass was done.
    223-226 wow.

    I was ina lot of pain/swelling andwalking was limited; due to loss of movement in the ankle.
    Found out last week I had RSD. The nerves and blood flow were looking for the original arteries that was by-passed.
    Now I on a medicine that is clearing that up, lots of PT at home, working on flexibility this week, next week core and flexibility, the following week is strength, core and flexibility. WHEW!!! - 9/24/2012 8:10:06 PM

  • Hello. I began a weight loss challenge through a grocery store. They chose 24 contestants through out the state of Texas to compete in a slim down contest. The winner takes $10,000. The contest does not solely consist of weight loss alone. I also need to gain support from the general public. I hope I can have your support. Please visit www.HEB.com/slimdown and click on the picture that reads "Mayra" to access my blogs. Each comment, like and share earns me a point. Hope to see the support. Thank you. - 9/14/2012 11:28:35 PM

  • Been here almost a week on this 'new' spark program..and as usual with Spark am learning lots of new things re getting and staying healthy. and I've noticed renewed energy within and an inner sense of keep going forward.. and well, it's been fun!
    I feel healthier..self esteem is way up there as I am succeeding on staying with the plan; am enjoying discovering new foods, healthy ways or eating and yes, even getting at least one fruit in each day. - 8/31/2012 12:37:28 PM

  • How can I keep blogs to just friends? - 8/23/2012 11:38:16 PM

    I have read through the blogging page and nothing I can do will take me to a place to start my blog. There are no links, and the suggested places to go are not places I see on my screen.
    I was inspired to begin a blog here by a SparkPeople blog video about a woman who has taken off a lot of weight and wants to keep it off.
    I have taken off a little over 100 lbs, and come down from a size 20 to a size 2 or 4 (depends on the brand). I kept off the weight for 10 years, then accidentally went up 20 lbs last year and went into a blind panic and did everything I knew how to do to get back into my small size clothes. I've been successful, and I've identified what made me put on the weight, and am now in strict maintenance mode. I'd like to share this experience, but I can not for the life of me figure out how to make it through the maze that is Spark People - 8/16/2012 11:18:45 PM
  • Hello everyone - this is my first blog attempt! This week I have noticed such a remarkable difference in my energy level and overall feelling of wellbeing that it is so exciting I had to share with somebody!
    I, on average, walk 5 days a week and watch what I eat with little success at my weight loss or self esteem or confidence.
    I have been on the weight loss roller coaster for over 25 years and have finally found something that has made the difference for me! I started taking the It Works! GREENS one month ago and every day I have noticed that I feel a little "better" for lack of a better word.
    Well...on Monday of this week I decided to try and job for a few minutes while on my walk. I went farther than I thought I would before having to go to a walk to catch my breath before doing the jogging again ! Tuesday - last night - I went half again as far as I did on Monday night! EUREKA! I feel awesome!
    I have never been a jogger - no idea where that idea came from - BUT I DID IT!
    Just went for my walk at lunch for 30 minutes and am going to walk/jog tonight! I feel so proud of myself for actually doing it and am absolutely amazed that I actually "want to" do it!
    Thank you for being here to "listen"! :) - 8/15/2012 2:06:36 PM

  • I am just starting to do a few blogs after being on the website for 2 plus years. This is not my strength, but can see how it can be useful. I do read others and enjoy reading some of them so why not try it. - 8/10/2012 12:50:12 PM
