Making some positive changes !

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Wow how did i get here again ? emoticon I had lost over 30 lbs on sparkpeople and kept it off almost 3 years then i got a automune disease that has took alot of my vision and the last year i have been on predisone and steriod shots ect so now i am back where i started . I am very disappointed but thank God i can take the meds or i would have already been totally blind. I am getting the shots thru the company and they cost almost 3,000 a month but i get them till next october . They are not sure they can save what eye sight i have but with chemo pills and some other pills they are buying me time and i am enjoying seeing what i can. Only God knows the future but whatever it is i want to go thru it without complaining . God has been so good to me i am 62 years old and can still walk and see and haven't had cancer that my friends is a miracle but i am no better than the next person . I enjoy everyday the best i can and even if i don't lose a lb i am changing my eating habits first cutting sugar out completely and eating more veggies . They said the weight no matter whatever i do will keep going up on the meds but if it does at least i can say i did my part to be healthier. Please pray for me i have the team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER and i know he has for me . Planning on blogging daily would love to have a friend to help me on this journey ! emoticon So thankful for the team and all my special spark friends here. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP ! emoticon

I admire you so very, very much, my sweet Sister/Friend.

You are always & forever in my thoughts & prayers.

I shall look forward to reading your daily blogs. I have missed that touching of lives with your precious self.

May our Abba continue to bless you, Vickie!

    That's great that you won't give up. As long as you keep doing what you can to be the healthiest you, you are succeeding.

    I have RA and know your struggles. I too am 62. I had to retire from teaching when I was 55 due to the RA...I lost about 30 lbs like you and gained it back and it is slow going down this time around. A daily stuggle so I take one day at a time and thank God for what I'm still able to do.

    I've done this more times than I care to admit. It is a lifelong battle.

    Do you eat meat and drink milk and have good oils in your diet I read not all people can be healthy on vegetarian diet We are all different When we do not get all the chemicals we need we grave Balance in all things not to much of one thing
