before the GI diet

I am 66 years old. I had spinal surgery in December of 2002. Before that I was very active,employed as a home care nurse and involved in various activities in my community in Brooklyn, New York. I had a book of poems published and started working on a novel.

After surgery, I was retired from my job,shortly after that my husband, who had prostate cancer, died.I decided to re-locate to Covington, Georgia to start anew.I have gradually gained weght,moving from 150 to 210 pounds. I believe this to be as a result of a more sedentary life style, and my not being able to participate in vigorous exercise programs, because of my disability.
My goal is to lose 50 pounds, find myself a new husband, and start writing again. I have tried various diets and weight loss plans, all to no avail. So when I read about the Low GI diet revolution, as a nurse, I knew it was based on sound data. So I thought I'd give it a shot.I am entering this contest to generate support for my quest, moreso than to win the cookbook. However that would be a plus.
