Hi, I'm just visiting your page because I happened to have read a few of your posts, and I thought to myself... here is a lady who knows how to cherish her blessings. I see you refer to your husband in a way that's both affectionate and admiring. You two are lucky to have each other. :) Have a nice day. 1706 days ago
Hi... Welcome to SP! I'm sure you will find lots of resources here to help you build a healthy and happy future. I also have a very rare and painful disease and an autoimmune condition. For years I was very inactive. Now, slowly, I'm finding ways to get more active without getting hurt. Most important thing is to never give up trying and always count calories. SP so helps for both those things. Hope you have a great day. 1713 days ago
I started working on my weight loss plan on Saturday the 7th of January 2012. I didn't make a New Years resolution, because they never work. What I did is make a promise to the people I love to get healthy this year. I am a survivor of a very rare illness Guillain-Barre-Syndrome (GBS) that almost killed me 2 years ago. Many of the medications I take are know to make you gain weight. Yes I was heavy, but never more than 10 or so pounds. This I do for me and the people I love.
I have lost 4 pounds since last Saturday, but I just found SparkPeople 2 days ago. So far, I am just getting to find my way around the site. What I have enjoyed so far, are the recipes and that I only have to look in one place to find all kinds of great foods.
I am really looking forward to meeting people who are working to change their lifestyle and eating habits. Just one last thought, my GBS makes doing many exercises extremely difficult. I am able to walk around the block, but would love suggestions from anyone who also has an illness that makes exercise difficult.
May you all have a great day. Cherry 1720 days ago
