Hi I am Sandi, 57 yr old, married, 5 children, and 13 grandchildren. Unfortunately they are all in MI, where we moved from to Mesa AZ 5 years ago.
I am restarting the program as I have been MIA for quite some time. My goal is 155lbs- that means I need to loose
Unfortunately I have fibromyalgia, diabetes,and multiple medical issues, accompanied by genetic depression. In my illness. God led me to lead a disability group at my church, and encourage others who have fibromyalgia, and other disabilities.
I had knee surgery the beginning of 2008, and developed RSD( look up in Medical term section) and I am on a medicine for that , that has caused me to regain lost weight. It is a side effect of the medication, Neurontin. I must choose to be heavier than I want and in severe pain requiring narcotics, or use the medication and have a little " belly pad".
I will give God all the Glory for what He does in and through me using Spark People, and starting a forum, called Christians with fibromyalgia. I praise God for leading me to this site.I am a born again Christian and go to a Bible believing evangelical church.
I was born again at age 22yrs - at least that is when I made Christ, Lord of my life. I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Jesus, as my Savior ,and did not understand the Lordship part.until I was 22yrs old.
In Sunday school at age 6, we were singing a song " Into my heart, into my heart, come into my heart Lord Jesus, come in today, come in to stay, come into my heart, Lord Jesus". So I would say I was saved then at age 6 and rededicated my life and was baptised at age 22.
Praise be to God that He loved me so much that He sent His one and only Son down from heaven,
Jesus Christ, to die for me. I know for sure when I die, I will go to heaven and be with God and Jesus Christ forever.
Again Praise God for His GRACE- God's riches at Christ expense", for it is by grace I am saved, not by works that I would boast. If I boast , according to Scripture, I am to boast about my weakness and how God has seen me through all sorts of trials and tribulations, to conform me into being like His Son-Jesus Christ.
If anyone reading this wants to know how they can know without a doubt, that they will go to heaven, please feel free to post on Christians with Fibromyalgia , my new group site,-or spark mail me, and I will be happy to help lead you to a personal relationship with Jesus While I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me... Sandi
To keep my body as God''s Holy temple- so I can do His will, His good, pleasing, and perfect will, in regard to physical, motional and spiritual health.
My goal is to reach 155 lbs,, as I am 5'8" .
MY goal is to share my Christianity with encouraging fellow fibromites or people with fibromyalgia, who find it difficult to exercise with the pain. I currently am limited by knee RSD, tendonitis, and arthritis, bilateral sciatica, leg cramps while I sleep and tendonitis of my entire left upper extremity. In addition I unfortunately have a life threatening immunity deficiency, over and above what other fibromites have & severe reactive asthma.
I am keeping a daily nutritional journal and a spiritual one off line, through First Place Christ centered Bible study and weight loss program..
I have committed and suceeding currently Sep 23,2008 to exercise on my recumbant bike, as pain allows.
The site started by me is Christians with Fibromyalgia. Please spark mail me for an invitation. We are under spark teams.
I currently live in Mesa AZ, for the last 5 years. I moved here for health reasons, and upon recommendation of my Drs in Michigan..That leaves 5 children, and 13 grandchildren in Michigan
I am addicted to the computer,scrapbooking, research,,and the power of prayer as I am a disabled RN.
Jan 2008 I had a full knee replacement, without surgery problems. UNfortunately, however, I developed the most painful disease one can aquire, and that is RSD of my knee and leg. It is also know as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. The pain is relentless , but still I trust God to forward in whatever He calls me to do.
