Debbie's Story

Hi, I am a single mom on disability. I have several health issues that I have been dealing with. My doctor's keep telling me that if I loose weight that I will feel better. I know that is true. My biggest problem is that I have an addictive personality and when I get a taste of my favorite foods, I don't seem to know when to quit.

Member Since: 8/28/2012

SparkPoints: 5,351

Fitness Minutes: 1,738

My Goals:
1. To find peace within myself.
2. To practice self control.
3. To loose at least 1-2 lbs per week.
4. To regulate my sleep schedule.
5. To do at least 10 minutes worth of exercise each day.

My Program:
My program starts with giving all glory to God! In order for me to live a Godly life I must abandon all gluttony and work on self control. I need to realize that I am powerless but God can work through me. I am basically just watching my caloric intake, watching my portions, drinking my water, and trying to exercise every day.

Personal Information:
I was raised an Army brat and moved so many times when I was growing up that I don't know where to call home. Currently I am in Michigan and don't plan on going anywhere soon.

I have a 15 year old daughter at home and a 18 year old son that is living anywhere he can lay his head. I also have a 30 year old son in ND along with my beautiful granddaughters. Then last but not least is my oldest son at 32 years old who lives in Fairbanks, AK and is going to college.

My mom lives close to me and she is my best friend. Unfortunately she is in Florida during the winter months. I can't wait until April for her to get home.

My dad lives in Georgia so I don't get to see him very often.

Other Information:
I am 52 and before I leave this world I want to be able to look in a mirror and see someone who is beautiful and someone with whom I am totally happy with.

HI hon !!

TY so MUCH for reading my blog about losing the 80 lbs. When I was new to SPARKS back in Dec 10, I read someones and it excited me,, she also had many health problems,, as do I,, as do you !! She said "take it one day at a time, go slowly with building up the exercise, but it won't work unless you do what you can." At that time,, I mostly used my power chair,,,, I started to walk 3 steps,,,, it was all I could do. slowly over the next week,,, and AGAINST Dr orders,,,, I would go downstairs (Lived in a high rise) I grabbed the bar that ran down the sidewalk,,, and held on for DEAR LIFE and moved my feet,, as I also had my power chair right besides me. It took me a few weeks, before I could do it, but I DID WALK the length of that ! Which was maybe 7 feet. That got me ALL EXCITED to thinking "I CAN DO THIS" !! I talked to my Dr who said "Diane, you are trying TO HARD, I've seen your Xrays, you will NOT walk again, STOP TRYING ur only frustrating ourself". Well hey that TICKED ME OFF !!! That day I went home,, went down that rail,, and back up again !!! THe next day further, and further,,, over I think a month,, I was finally able to walk a MILE !!

I went BACK to my Dr's office WITHOUT the power chair ! Her mouth about HIT the FLOOR ! We had a talk,, at the end of it she said "I will never again tell a patient they cant do something they want. You have shown me that's not always true". She was soo kind,, nice,, impressed,, as was I !!

I do go back and forth,, sometimes I can walk without much difficulty other times,, its very hard. I've now been on a streak of 2 yrs of being able too ! UNLESS I've had surgery on feet,, 3 of them in the past yr and half,,,, each time I FINALLY recover ,,I am TAKING it on WITH GUSTO !! Never quit trying hon !!

Right now I am walking on a broken foot,, with permission of course. I have a special plate in my shoe,, so it doesn't bend, and hurt it more. I also use a bone grower now,,,, and in a yr I go back to the Drs,,, he figures it'll take that long for the bone to grow back. I am PLEASED as PUNCH I GET TO WALK NOW !! Something that most take for granted,,,, I consider to be extremely precious.

Plz do not let ur physical condition keep you from fighting for this !!! Often when I can't walk,, hardly move,,, I cut back on my calorie intake. its NOT been easy,, to lose those 80 lbs,,,, its taken me 6 yrs !! SLOW And STEADY as TURTLE !

Keep UP the GOOD WORK HON !! STAY ON SPARKS,,, Track ur food,,, drink water,,, a lot of it,,, and also exercise as much as you can. It WORKS if you WORK IT 1

Just read that your leg was giving you a lot of pain. I hope it isn't anything serious and you will be up and around before you know it.

Hi Deborah,
I haven't been on sp for awhile so I just read your email saying your back. Loosing weight with a disability is hard, remember you have support out there! I too have a disability so I understand, but being a mom to must make the journey even more difficult.

Welcome back and good luck!
