I have Myasthenia Gravis (a rare neuro-muscular disease) and Bethlem Myopathy Muscular Dystrophy (an extremely rare form of Muscular Dystrophy) I also have Osteoarthritis, Addison's Disease, Orthostatic Tachycardia and have had my voice box removed due to complications from the MG. With all of my "Medical Mayhem" I am unable to exercise; but am recommitting to the diet plan and hoping for success!
I am also a breast cancer survivor ... Please, if you're reading this, make sure to have your routine mammograms and to encourage all the women in your life to have theirs!


2 Corinthians 12:9
And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness' Therefore I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of God may rest upon me.

SparkPoints: 5,725

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Goal of losing aprx 40 lbs and building up strength so am able to walk again (at least short distances!) without use of wheelchair or walker.

My Program:
Due to the MG I am limited in the physical exercise I can do; the disease precludes me from doing most exercising as "repetitive motions" of any kind worsen the weakening of my muscles.

Personal Information:
I start and stop my "Spark Journey" sometimes doing well; other times not. Beginning again today due to rapid weight gain from increased steroid medications to control my various medical "issues"
