Looking Forward to 2014

My name is Beth and I have been struggling with my weight all my life. I have several health problems that are complicated by my weight. I have Multiple Sclerosis, Cardiomyopathy, Asthma,Migraines, Arthritis, Sleep Apnea and numerous others symptomatic from the MS. I would love to lose the weight so that I might be able to regain back some of my mobility and not have to be confined to the wheelchair as often as I am at times. I am looking for any and all advice I can get to help me get out ...
My name is Beth and I have been struggling with my weight all my life. I have several health problems that are complicated by my weight. I have Multiple Sclerosis, Cardiomyopathy, Asthma,Migraines, Arthritis, Sleep Apnea and numerous others symptomatic from the MS. I would love to lose the weight so that I might be able to regain back some of my mobility and not have to be confined to the wheelchair as often as I am at times. I am looking for any and all advice I can get to help me get out of the rut I am in.

I believe that I can do this and that God has given me all these conditions to make me appreciate the fact that when I can walk that I should be grateful and not procrastinate but I am a slow learner and at 55 I find myself still overweight and a grandmother of two, so I am hoping that I can learn this lesson once and for all now and not have to keep going through the same circle of trying to learn what He is trying to get me to see. So far I have lost over 100 pounds and this time I am going to continue until I reach my goals and I Believe I can Achieve it.

Thank you, thank you for posting the blog called Trapped. I so needed to read it. I've been married 24 yrs to an abusive,manipulative liar diagnosed as Narcissistic. I had him arrested in '05 for assault, he stopped hitting me, now it's verbal and mental abuse.

After I had him arrested he started moving the debt into my name, which I didn't learn until a few years ago. Now I have no way out, no money, nothing. I despise living with him. We have 2 kids who are mentally ill as well, behave just like him.

I quit Spark a few weeks ago, when the despression hit rock bottom. And I'm only now clawing my way back. I wish we lived near each other. I'm in NC in the USA.

Anyway, thank you for posting about your life. I really needed to see it.
