So You're Human Are Ya?

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Yes, I'm human and I'm going to make mistakes on this journey, but you know what, I will preserver, always. I've been motivated by reading some of the SP blogs today. Also knowing that I'm never alone in this battle of loosing fat. Yes, that is what I call it because throughout my body and inside and around my vital organs is where the bad fat is living. If I don't watch out it will eventually kill me. I've always thought that I have lived a healthy lifestyle. Until menopause caught up with me, the weight gain, diagnosis of fibromyalgia that was so bad I couldn't get out of bed or walk and my thyroid let me down. But, I'm a living example that exercise can be a curse on fibromyalgia. Hurt, yes, it hurts to move, but if I don't move I hurt worse. Anyone out here in SP land that has it....please move, move your body. I kayak, I'm a master gardener, love to cook and try new recipes, bake my own bread and I belly dance and try to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and best of all I'm a Nana to a beautiful 17 month old granddaughter. Hey while writing this all down I feel like I have really accomplished great things....I've stopped taking my medications for fibromyalgia which was Cymbalta, Celexa, Flexerel so many different drugs because the doctors aren't sure what you have and some don't believe in Fibro. Now for the thyroid gotta stay on that and that's all I take now. I've come a long way baby....and I'm going to take this beautiful journey one step at a time. With all of you with me. Because you see I'm uncovering more that a sleeping butterfly I'm learning more about myself and others and there's nothing that can hold me back. Thank you SP for being here, for the wonderful recipes, and all the tools offered on this site. And to all of you beautiful people in SP land....sending skinny vibes your way.

    Getting off those meds is a great accomplishment!! Keep it up!! You have inspired me for sure. I have to be on prednesone (rare life-threatening disease), and gained 40lbs. last year...now they say I am nearly diabetic too. Like you, I thought I was healthy!! We do have to keep trying-especially the walking/moving our bodies. I know!! I almost could not walk 10 yrs ago when my arthritis/tendinitis in my feet/ankles got really bad. I pushed and walked and buy good shoes with arch support, and it has all helped a lot!! emoticon

    You said you fell like you have "really accomplished great things". You absolutely have!!! That you continue on, despite so many reasons that other would give up, is an inspiration. You prove that good health can change so many parts of your life and your outlook. Thank you for sharing your story. emoticon
