Need to get back to getting this weight off and be movated to do it

I was diagnosed with Lupus, vasculitis and Multi-Joint Pain and some other thing but have to find out what it is cause they only put letters for it and I don't know what it means. They also said that I had congestive heart failure but had a complete cardio work up and my heart was fine except for it being a little large and the doctor was surprised that I had no blockage in my heart at all. ( I think it was because of my weight but I like veggies allot). I was diagnosed in Oct of 2000 and was ...
I was diagnosed with Lupus, vasculitis and Multi-Joint Pain and some other thing but have to find out what it is cause they only put letters for it and I don't know what it means. They also said that I had congestive heart failure but had a complete cardio work up and my heart was fine except for it being a little large and the doctor was surprised that I had no blockage in my heart at all. ( I think it was because of my weight but I like veggies allot). I was diagnosed in Oct of 2000 and was put on steroids and plaquenil and in March of 2001 ended up in the hospital with fluid in my lungs and around my heart that is when they put me on Methotrexate and the dose kept going up to control my lupus and get rid of the fluid in my lungs. The doses of the meds were prednisone 40mg. plaquenil 400mg and methotrexate 25mg injections because the methotrexate pills messed with my stomach.
After being on methotrexate for seven years my body decided that it did not like the methotrexate and my hands started swelling and hurting along with where I was giving myself the injections at. The doctor took me off and wanted to put me on something else and I told him to wait until my body got use to being off those meds and to see if I really needed something else. Luckily he agreed to what I said and my body did adjust to not having all that stuff in me and so now I just need to get my body off all the rest of the meds that I am on but I d0 know that it will be a slow process but I will do it. I also have noticed that when I eat grains that it sets off my lupus and that it causes more pain too with my arthritis. So now I eat very little grains. I only eat oats and rice in my food and try to stay away from any other grains. The two of the grains that I stay away from most is wheat and corn. Wheat because it causes all kinds of stomach problems and also makes my lupus flare and corn because it causes my tongue to swell. Both of those I do not want.
I am not worried about the two vitamins that I am on just want to get off of the steroids and the plaquenil. Both can cause eye problems.

My husband died from the chemo that he was getting and the chemo made his cancer more aggressive than before and his body could not take all that toxins and he was not getting the nutrients that his body needed because chemo kills fast growing cells and the digestive track is fast growing cells so when they kill the cancer they also kill the digestive track too. That is why most people lose weight. As a matter of fact they call it the chemo diet for that reason. I miss him so much. He was a kind and gentle man.

Fitness Minutes: 114,414

My Goals:
To get healthy and off all of my medications that I am on for my Lupus and be fitter than I was when I got married over 33 years ago. Need to carry on with life now that my husband is in heaven and I want to be in the best shape when my Lord and Savior comes back for the church.



My Program:
Exercise everyday except on Saturday so that my body can recover and watch what I eat. Have a problem with eating wheat that I didn't know that I have until I stopped eating and allot of my symptoms when away and when I eat wheat they come back.

Personal Information:
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
Charles Stanley

Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He's sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.
Charles Stanley


Other Information:
I like to read books, sew things. Do things with my hands with crafts when they are not hurting. I also like to figure things out when I am sewing and trying new things that are not suppose to go together.

Gardening has taught me a lot. One thing for sure is, that I need to be patient and gentle caring for all living things. And, if I neglect caring for them, I will lose them. So today I pray that I will scatter patience and gentle love on all living things around me.

Dorothy, It is so hard for me to know that my sister is choosing chemo when she could rid her body of all and only cancer cells with an organic coffee edema and do juicing. Because her three granddaughters are doctors and follow the chemo path, my sister refused to listen to me. But I am going to try to talk her into the non-chemo way.....she will not be here for long if she keeps on the chemo. Plus it cost almost $1,000 each time she goes. No way can she pay that kind of money.

Oh what a beauitful time of the year spring is. Especially this year, after the long, cold winter. Ah, to walk outside and smell the earth, as well as see everything coming back to life. It is truly amazing and breath taking! The crocuses in their vibrant colors; the snow drops so delicate looking, yet so hardy; the daffodils showing off their ruffled beauty; and the tulips very straight and vivid in colors. Plus the longer days of sunlight. It makes you feel more alive.

My wish for you is to enjoy this Spring and all its beauty. To feel alive with a strong desire to bring to life all the awesome abilities that are within you. Make this spring one that you will remember for years to come.
