Living a Strong and Happy Life

Hi. My name is Linda and I am from Massachusetts. I joined Spark People to help me in my quest for a healthy life. I have crohns disease and Lupus. Everyday has been a battle for me for the past 2 years when I got diagnosed in 2007. I am happier now because I look at things a lot differently than I did then. I believe that with the right lifestyle and attitude I can overcome the obstacles I face and live an enjoyable happy life. I know that my life is not about the diseases it is about me.

My Goals:
My goals are for me to get back to what I weighed back in 2007 (117-120lbs) when I got diagnosed and put on medications that made me gain a lot of weight.

I also want to gain strength and energy.

My Program:
I want to move around as much as I can. Right now walking works for me. I also love playing with my dog, going to the park or beach. I love going near the ocean...it is a great way for me to relax and enjoy the calm...great stress reducer.
Eating a sound diet is a little more tricky for me because of my diseases and the medications I am on...I have blood tests to monitor all sorts of things to make sure I have enough vitamins and minerals. I am currently low in calcium and Vitamin D...working on getting those up.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Emily Dickinson
