I am so tired of being tired and having illness related to being overweight...its my turn to turn around and be what I am supposed to be.
New chapter....just diagnosed myasthenia gravis. Now I have all the more reason to get out there and move and to eat right. I have felt bad all this time because I was sick. Now I have to fight back just to keep the meds from doing me in! Feeling better everyday! I love Spark People!

SparkPoints: 13,783

Fitness Minutes: 3,628

My Goals:
My goal is just to be a normal size and healthy.
Nothing more...nothing less.
I have always tried to do it fast...and have succeeded sometimes...but have always gained it back. I want to be able to walk when I am 80.

My Program:
My program is to follow the tracker as faithfully as I can. Working on more exercise as I am able.
I am working with Spark coach and my friend here and it seems doable!

Other Information:
I have tried to do my art for years....always putting it aside for everyone else's needs....but there is a part of me that needs to come out and be recognized even if just to myself.
I think it's tied up with my size and eating...and I am going to break free. Its my turn.

Hi Meg!
Thank you for visiting my page. I can relate to what you where saying and I am praying for you. And yes, I am a pastor (for 17 years now). God is faithful! I am beginning again. I believe it must be a lifestyle but old habits die hard. As long as I submit my eating to God, I win. I am thanking God for how He works everything for good for me! Grace & Peace!

Welcome. I have MS, but I get the facial droop and many symptoms of myastenia gravis. I am not sure if they tested me for it. I started off marching in place with a pedometer. Depending on how weak you are even doing 500 steps every half hour adds up. N.ow I can do it longer, but on bad days of course is less. I recently found a great anti-aging MD who thinks outside of the box. She is turning around my MS so I am feeling much better. Hugs

Hi!

I'm also doing SparkCoach, and love the accountability aspect of the program for nutrition and fitness. I'm so glad we can support one another! This is our year to succeed!

You're doing great with what you're already doing. My suggestion is honestly to listen to your body and don't add too much too soon. I truly think what you posted as exercise was great. Just add a little more time and intensity every other time. Listen to your body. I looked up myasthenia gravis. I am glad that you are getting help with the pain. I am thinking of ya! Keep on doing what you love and loving yourself each step of the way.

Thanks for your questions...

How did I start? Slow and steady. Started adding 15-30 second run in between walking. I found what I enjoyed. I like walking / running. I was a swimmer as a kid but don't like to swim as much as an adult. Some people were runners now they like to swim etc... Just enjoy what you're doing.

Advice on how to deal with the pain... I wasn't in too much pain when I was that weight. I feel lucky. But, I would get intense charlie-horses in my calves. It was an almost miracle that as the weight came off, the pain went away. I went to WW at first, but I don't like it so much now. I enjoy the Spark-Healthy-Eating plans more. You have the tools. Keep on taking it one day at a time and enjoying the journey.

Big, Big, HUGS!!!!!
