AUGUST 2014 ... everything is different now

I'm Kelly and this is my journey!

There have been many changes in my life since I was last active at SP. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Type 2 diabetes. The last 18 months have been very painful for me and I am not in great condition right now but i will at least be working to eat much healthier to control my blood sugar and for overall health improvements. Losing weight has a whole new meaning now, I need it more than ever ...

There have been many changes in my life since I was last active at SP. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Type 2 diabetes. The last 18 months have been very painful for me and I am not in great condition right now but i will at least be working to eat much healthier to control my blood sugar and for overall health improvements. Losing weight has a whole new meaning now, I need it more than ever before. My life depends on it. I hope to find support here from old friends and new ones, as well as with others who suffer from RA and Fibromyalgia.

Fitness Minutes: 8,769

My Goals:
Starting weight on 8/22/14 was 290. Goal is 250 by end of year.


I've been a Spark member since 2006. I had good success the first 2 years and then things began to slide and I have ended up gaining about 60 lbs back.

This time is different though, I have new challenges and am less able to do physical exercise at this time. I now have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as Type 2 diabetes. I'm not in good condition right now and due to the chronic pain I'm not able to do much but I figure I can at least work on the 'changing the way I eat' part of it. I want to give up red meat and all soda, more fruits and veggies and more water. These are the things I'll be focusing on to start out. I know it won't be easy, and won't happen overnight, but I need to make this happen and get the weight off before it literally kills me. I hope to find support from old friends, new ones and hope to also connect with other Sparkers who have RA and Fibro,

My Program:
Eat right
Use the food tracker
Drink Water
Give up red meat and all soda
Eat more veggies and fruits

Kelly,
My page is still here, but I am absent ALOT! I started to feel like it was a chore and obligation to be here, so I dropped my leadership roles, did not sign up for anymore challenges and probably this is the first time I've been here in 3-4 months?? I will TRY to come more often to support you and my other friends.
Big hugs,
Shan
