COMMITTMENT

March 25, 2015: I have been committed since Jan. 2015. Totally committed. I have upped my steps and walking. Have still had some trouble with overeating at times but I know that is part of the journey. Being committed to the 90 day challenge has helped me to stay the course and I'm feeling so much better. My Rheumatoid Arthritis is more manageable. My A1C has improved and actually I just feel better. I know it is going to be slow but I know that at least my health is going to be better ...

Have still had some trouble with overeating at times but I know that is part of the journey. Being committed to the 90 day challenge has helped me to stay the course and I'm feeling so much better. My Rheumatoid Arthritis is more manageable. My A1C has improved and actually I just feel better. I know it is going to be slow but I know that at least my health is going to be better for I am committing to 2015 being my year to get it together. Will I reach my goal weight? Probably not but that is ok. Right now my goal is total commitment and to see what changes may come. I 'm so Thankful for my friends here, old and new who help me in so many ways. This is definitely going to be my year!


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!!!

Oh my, what a chum of a friend you are to me, Lisa, and it's really no surprise that you're that way once again, but boy oh boy, do I ever need your support and encouragement and I just got it! Up to 195# this morning and just about passed out with seeing that number! At this point, 155# seems unattainable and yet I know that it's not. To think that I got as close as 164# the end of 2012 and plateaued and literally gave up, but it took me 2.5 more years to put 30-some back on. The knee replacement hasn't helped either, the before part of it. But now with walking, I hope to shave some of this off for good. My feet can hurt so much though with the RA in them so much, but I'll try to keep going in spite of the pain. Thanks for the goodie and thanks for being one of the very bestest of buddies! Hugs to you, Karen
