Getting acquainted

DORIS - 2:07PM PDT, Aug 28th 2007

Hi. I'm a 66 yrs old and retired. My husband & I live in a small home in California. We really don't do a lot together because his health is not always the best. I like to walk, sew, read, do things with my children and grandsons and have lunch with friends. I've fought with my weight off and on for years. This year, I HAVE to get serious because my blood sugar is up to 122. 126 is diabetic. The Dr. told me that if I could lose 20 lbs and keep it off, it should help a lot. So far, I've been on CalorieKing for 2 weeks. I've lost 4 lbs. Hopefully, I can keep going. I hope that I receive some responses to this.
Thanks.

Hi Doris! Way to go with those 4 pound lost!! You're one smart lady to try to get things under control before having to rely on meds to keep your blood sugar under control! I'm working on keeping both my hubby and me healthy as possible. Fortunately, my hubby has found our revamped eating lifestyle easy to handle. I have been able to find a good many healthy recipes for us to try from various sources.

Andrea. Thank you for your kind words. It's good that you and your husband can work on this together. It really helps to have someone to do it with you. Hope you can keep on finding good
recipes.

Doris, I subscribe to an email from www.mdchef.com. Last week, I received a great recipe for brussel sprouts. I normally shun brussel sprouts; they usually just don't taste that good to me...too bitter or metallic or something. Anyway, this recipe made them taste nice and nutty. You can go to their website and view the recipes listed there. The one for the brussel sprouts is called "Braised Brussel Sprouts." My hubby, who does like brussel sprouts, said I could make that recipe for him anytime!:kiss:
