Hi and Welcome! emoticon

I have had RA for approximately 8 months. I'm on my second dose of Humira. Embrel didn't do very much for me. I'm also on Sulfazine which is helping the swelling to go down. I do Tai Chi which is a life saver and am a children's swim instructor. Being in the water is very theraputic. I'm on a whole lot of other medications which the doctors say makes it difficult to lose weight. I'm trying very hard to be patient. As hard as it is, I don't give up. Thank the Lord I found SparkPeople last year. I don't know what I'd do without it. I participate in the forums despite my busy life. I think it's what helps me stick to the program, here. Pretty soon, I'll be seeing a nutritionist to help me with meal palnning. I'm really looking forward to that. Other than that, I take care of my grandson who has high functioning Autism. He's come a long way in a short amount of time. He is a true blessing in my life! I love him a lot! He helps me in the garden and with the housework and I help him with his homework and his sports. Fair exchange don't you think? Lol. I hope you reach your goals. A word of advise. Share, share and share. It'll help you along, more than you would think.

Have a great day!
