9/8/2010 - 50TH BIRTHDAY! MY YEAR OF JUBILEE!!!
***I am not losing because of multiple surgeries of the feet, and being in a wheelchair, but I am eating for LIFE!!!
I am looking into alternative ways to assist me in this need to get the weight off of my tendons and joints. Anything I do will require diet and exercise, lifestyle changes, and serious focus.
New goal - lose 50 in my 50th year...OR MORE!

And my NEW PLAN - I am not allowed to train for the triathlon like I wanted....but I can still train....FOR LIFE!!! Doing T-Tapp in a chair.

I'm many years into this journey - with ups and downs.

I am a born again Christian with very conservative/fundamental beliefs - but there are somethings that might surprise you if you want to discuss religion with me!
My whole life view revolves around who I am in Christ Jesus.
My two favorite verses - if I have to choose (see, I can't choose just one)
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
and
Jeremiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Oh, I could go on and on and on......start at Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
and end at Revelation 21:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
And everything in between!

There isn't anything in my life that hasn't been touched by the Hand of God, and nothing in my life makes sense without God's great plan for me. I trust in His ability to weave a beautiful tapestry out of all the threads, good, bad, beautiful or ugly.

I struggle with Dm2, foot, knee, back and hip pain, from FMS and OA, but I love to walk when I can.
I have multiple health issues, and PTSD - which added to the weight and the weight multiplied the health issues which added to the stress caused depression...and around and around we go. but I'm ready to get off this merry-go-round! As of 5/1/09, I have a physical therapist helping me to get the bone structure to work so I can walk again! Thank you God!

Today - 6/16/09 - I have been given permission to do 20 minute walks, and I have a 1 hour water routine I can start in another week. Finally answers - direction - and now we can go somewhere! Thank you Jesus!

My Goals:
My first goal was to reverse the prediabetes and prevent full blown diabetes - Goal Met 4/14/08.
My second goal is to walk a 5k - Goal Met 3/29/08.
My third goal is to get the pain and the sugar to be balanced so that I can be a consistent exerciser, and not emotionally eat.
As of 12/26/09- I'm getting closer!
As of 6/16/09 - the blood sugar is taken care of. And we're working on the pain and bone stuff.
For safety reasons, I now have a service dog, name Gabriel.
AS OF 11/6/09 THE PAIN IS SUBSIDING, BLOOD SUGAR IS STABLIZING, AND I AM EXERCISING DAILY! PRAISE TO JESUS CHRIST!

My MAIN Goal is to lose a total of 130 pounds. I need to take that in 10 pound increments - and I need to be as supportive of myself as I am of others.

I want to be able to take walks, hikes and enjoy the outdoors without wondering if my knee or hips will give out.
DONE 11.6.09
Hips gave out, 11.20.09

This is all an experiment...and I'm glad I'm not alone


My Program:
I am watching what I eat, and logging it - an average of 1400 - 1600 calories a day.

    A Poem of Hope
    by Helena Fehr

    I feel the arms of God around me,
    as I lay on my bed at night.
    Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
    I'm surrounded and held tight.

    IF......Written By: Margaret C Mullings
    If you can remain calm
    and forgive and still show
    love in the midst of your
    hurt and pain!

    If you can do this Jesus
    Christ has the reigns to
    your heart and you are
    a vessel chosen by your
    Heavenly Father to bring
    Glory and Honor to him.
