IS PUSHING THROUGH IT!!!

May 29, 2014: I've been here for a long time but not sure if I've ever fully committed. I have done exercise here and there when I wasn't having RA flares. My eating has been so so but nothing consistent. Since joining Pixie's team which this month is called 'Countdown to World Oceans Day' and it will change again in June and joining the LSW dvd's team, I have been more consistent and doing well.

May 29, 2014: I've been here for a long time but not sure if I've ever fully committed. I have done exercise here and there when I wasn't having RA flares. My eating has been so so but nothing consistent. Since joining Pixie's team which this month is called 'Countdown to World Oceans Day' and it will change again in June and joining the LSW dvd's team, I have been more consistent and doing well. I went in this morning and my BMI is 40.7. This is morbidly obese. I'm striving to lose half the amount I need to get to a healthy BMI and I'm going to do it slowly and consistently.



November 1, 2013. I am turning 55 on Thanksgiving day this year. I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2010 and I've finally gotten my A1C just under 7 and I continue to fight and will get this below 6. In the last year I was diagnosed with RA and it has been a struggle to push through. I'm on 3 meds right now and I've taken the Embrel and Humira but have had to stop for different reasons. I am continuing to push thru. On days when I have to rest, I do. Otherwise I'm doing at least one walk a day and 2 strength trainings a week. It is a journey that's for sure. I'm staying on track now and getting a jump start on New Years Day 2014. I have much to be Thankful for and to look forward too. I have a wonderful and supportive family, grandkids I want to watch grow up and be able to participate in their lives and a Husband who I look forward to growing old with. For these reasons and to be Healthy of course....I AM PUSHING THROUGH IT!!!!



I am a 51 yr. old wife,mother and grandmother. I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, reading and playing with my granddaughter. My health has gradually gotten worse and I am severly overweight. I want to get healthy and be around for my husband and children. I also want to watch my granddaughter grow up.
Oct. 28th.- Well it has been a long year. I have not even come close to the goals I had hoped to achieve here. My DH has had numerous health issues which I let sideline me. I hope we have gotten him straightened out. Tuesday I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have been in a state of denial but now it is time to really figure this out and try and get control. I'm hoping to get to a healthier place, control my sugar and be able to embrace the change!
May 25th. I'm feeling stronger and more focused. I'm pushing through! When I can't do another push up...push through. Lunges...push through. Walk an extra mile...push through. I will get there as long as I keep pushing!!!

Lisa it's so good to see you popping up in various places including my blog. Yep, I'll have fun at the wedding, fun with my siblings after my husband's niece's wedding, then we'll come home and deal with windows, care-givers etc...doctors...all that good stuff. Then mid August I'll celebrate my 66th year of blessings-How great is that.
You take care, keep on going, we are going to make it.

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again.
Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."
