"Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you're waiting."
*********************
I'm Kelly and this is my journey!

There have been many changes in my life since I was last active at SP. In 2014, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Type 2 diabetes. Since then 'life' has been physically painful for me and I am not in great condition right now but I will at least be working to eat much healthier to control my blood sugar and for overall health improvements. Recently my blood sugars have been high so I plan to buckle down and seriously make necessary changes to my diet. As for exercise, that will be a 'seek and find' because I don't really know what I can do at this point. I can't walk much and can not do anything like aerobics or running.

Losing weight has a whole new meaning now, I need it more than ever before. My life depends on it. I hope to find support here from old friends and new ones, as well as with others who suffer from RA and Fibromyalgia, diabetes.

I am not new to SP. I first joined in 2006 and was
Very active for about 2 years and lost 70 lbs. After that, it was a slippery slope and I was in and out of SP until 2013 when my health turned upside down and I left. For about 11 months I had no use of my right arm so being online was difficult and not worth the effort. I am feeling motivated and here. I am again.


I hope to connect with others who have physical challenges, chronic pain and chronic illness.

My Goals:
Starting weight on 12/14/16 was 320. Goal is 250 by end of year of 2017.




This time is different though, I have new challenges and am less able to do physical exercise at this time. I now have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as Type 2 diabetes. I'm not in good condition right now and due to the chronic pain I'm not able to do much but I figure I can at least work on the 'changing the way I eat' part of it. I want to give up red meat and all soda, more fruits and veggies and more water. These are the things I'll be focusing on to start out. I know it won't be easy, and won't happen overnight, but I need to make this happen and get the weight off before it literally kills me. I hope to find support from old friends, new ones and hope to also connect with other Sparkers who have RA and Fibro,
