In this for life!

I am back again!( RKMAMA from 2010-2013) Not even sure why I allowed myself to leave this wonderful community! Life can throw a lot of things at all of us but we need support and encouragement from one another! In 2010 I completed my weight loss journey, going from 235 lbs to 153 lbs. I was very motivated and Sparkpeople helped me maintain my zeal. In 2012 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that caused damage to my joints and eyes.

I am back again!( RKMAMA from 2010-2013) Not even sure why I allowed myself to leave this wonderful community! Life can throw a lot of things at all of us but we need support and encouragement from one another! In 2010 I completed my weight loss journey, going from 235 lbs to 153 lbs. I was very motivated and Sparkpeople helped me maintain my zeal. In 2012 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that caused damage to my joints and eyes.

I immediately felt some relief in knowing what was affecting me. For years I had complained to doctors about strange symptoms and pain. Finally there were answers! But I didn't realize that during the following months I would go through a grieving process. It was extremely difficult for me to express what I was feeling. Many days I pretended to be okay or not in pain. And then the old habits of stuffing away my feelings came back! Over a period of a year, I have regained close to 40 lbs.

Now, I have picked up my journey! It's going to be a new time in my life. Things won't be the way they were, only better! I will get back to my healthy maintenance range of 150-155 pounds. I still have a lot of fight in me! Along the way I look forward to supporting others in their journey to healthier living!

UPDATE: It's April 2014 and I'm down to the high 160's and a size 8/10 again! I see no reason why I can't make it back to my healthy weight range by the end of May or early June...
