Taking my life back...one day at a time.

I am a 35 year old Mom of 3 and was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am fighting a daily war with pain and fatigue, but I am determined to not let it control my life.

I made a goal for myself months ago and I have put a renewed effort into that goal. I have an exercise bike, treadmill, and do alot of Leslie Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds tapes, so my goal is to "do" 25 miles a day!!!

I am a 35 year old Mom of 3 and was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am fighting a daily war with pain and fatigue, but I am determined to not let it control my life.

I made a goal for myself months ago and I have put a renewed effort into that goal. I have an exercise bike, treadmill, and do alot of Leslie Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds tapes, so my goal is to "do" 25 miles a day!!! (Hence my SP name) With the diagnosis of RA recently, I have decided that I will try for at least 4-5 miles a day until I can get the RA more in control.

Well, here it is 2008 and I have not been on top of things as far as Spark and my weight loss are concerned. The RA has progressed and now affects just about all of my joints, and as of 2008, I have developed some sort of cardiac issues, which we are still trying to determine. So, needless to say, my 25 mile a day goal has not been met in some time. I am currently having to use forearm crutches to walk and distance and exercise has not been happening much at all....which I miss a bunch!

I am keeping track of what I eat and trying to do the best I can considering...and hoping to get the RA under control soon so I can get back to my exercising self!!

Most of my energy recently has been on a new 'baby' of mine. I have created an information and support site for those with RA. Tender Joints R.A.I.S.E.D. went live in Feb 2008. Those of you with RA, please feel free to visit us at http://www.tenderjointsraised.com

Thinking about you today, Deb, and hoping you are doing well =) It is difficult when you are new to an upsetting diagnosis so be sure to get support wherever you can and take the time to rest too!! Hugs, Lisa
