Taking Care Of My Body and Health
I am a 60 year old Christian Woman. I haven't taken very good care of myself through the years. Now I have many health problems. I am learning everyday to take care of my health. I am eating healthier. I am doing exercise that I am able to do. I can't walk very well, but I still go to the park and walk as far as I can.

I am a 60 year old Christian Woman. I haven't taken very good care of myself through the years. Now I have many health problems. I am learning everyday to take care of my health. I am eating healthier. I am doing exercise that I am able to do. I can't walk very well, but I still go to the park and walk as far as I can. I made it all way around the park the last two walk sessions. I need prayer from fellow Christians. Our strength is in God. I need to lose a lot of weight. So far I have lost 26 pounds. Illness gave me a setback on exercise for the last three months. I am back on track, now. I want to be able to do daily chores again. I want to do ordinary things again, such as grociery shopping. I want to take a leisurely walk in the park with my husband without being out of breath or feel pain. The Lord has sustained me through all my health problems. I find strength in God's Word and comfort through praying to Him. I thought Sparkpeople would be another place to find encouragement from other Christians. Sparkpeople helps me with so many things. Tracking my food is one of the biggest helps. Sparkpeople is amazing!
UPDATE: May 29, 2012
Since October, 2011 God has been guiding me and helping me with my weight loss journey and to learn how to live healthy. I have lost 73.5 pounds with no weight gains. Praise the LORD. I have experienced two plateau's. When the help of the LORD and the SparkCommunity, I gstay faithful to my eating plans and daily goals and the plateau's broke. I am getting around really good now. I am walking in the park and on the river walk. I am cleaning my own house now. I am doing yard work. Something I love to do. My body is shrinking and my clothes are getting to big. I have had to buy some clothing. I am stronger and healthier. physical in February my A1C blood sugar had dropped 11 points, my cholestrol was great, and my over all health was greatly improved. I am due a four month check-up in a few days. I can't wait for my doctor to see the amount of weight I have lost and see how well I have done with my blood test. I have lost 36.5 more pounds since I saw my physician last. I do still have some very serious issues with my back and am waiting to hear about back surgery. My doctor recommended a SCS Implant. It shocks the nerve and cuts out a lot of the pain. With that and more weight loss I should be good to go. The LORD has brought everything I need across my path. All I have had to do is obey and take care of my body.
UPDATE: July 29, 2012 I have now lost 86 pounds. I am still waiting for my back surgery.
UPDATE: August 12, 2012 I have now lost 88 pounds. I still haven't gotten a date for back surgery. It has been 13 weeks since I started with the doctors about the surgery. I am wondering if I should just forget it. My insurance is running out in two weeks.
UPDATE: October 12, 2012 My husbands job is continuing for a while. My insurance is still going. I have now lost 98 pounds. I am two pounds from my 100 pounds WooWhoo time. I have now had both back surgeries. I had the second one September 28. I am still recovering.
Update November 24, 2012 I have now lost 118 Pounds.
Update March 19, 2013 I had been gravely ill for many months. On November 28 I was taken to the hospital. I had developed a raging staph infection in the back surgery I had two months before. I had been sick all a long that time. I knew I didn't feel right, but thought it was symptom's of the surgery I had. I was in the hospital 19 days and had 3 more back surgeries. I am still recovering. I did gain weight in the hospital. I was on a high calorie diet. I continued to gain weight after coming home. I have gained back 24 pounds and struggling right now to get back to where I was with living healthy.
Update May 1, 2013 My weight has gone up to 247. I have gained 29 pounds. A week ago I started back with Sparkpeople. I have kept my Trackers and stayed true to them. I weighed in on Sunday a week later and I have lost
7 pounds for my first week. Yea! I joined a challenge to help encourage me to lose weight. So excited! My husband is onboard with me. He is eating healthy and exercising, too. Life is good. I praise you LORD GOD for YOUR help in my life!
Update May 19, 2013 Feeling really good. I have now lost 12 of the 29 pounds I regained during illness. I am in my garden almost everyday. Walking is my main exercise. I do other exercise, too. My back still and always will give me a lot of pain, but I am doing it. I ignore most of the pain and won't take pain meds. They started to harm my liver. Life is good. The LORD is blessing me. My husband is living healthy with me and exercising with me, too. He has lost about 10 or so pounds. Proud of him.
