You will find lots of help here for your weight loss, and perhaps for your medical issues as well, as the healthy lifestyle Spark encourages can lessen the effects of some medical problems. Autoimmune disorders are so mysterious in origin, we can never know what will affect them, but at the very least, reduced weight should put less stress on your affected joints. I'm RA & OA myself, but feel so much better now at 90 lbs lighter. I've still a long way to go, another 60 lbs. to goal. Looking forward to hearing more from you, about the grandbaby and anything else you would like to share. God Bless!

Hi everyone, I am a very excited expectant "Nana". We just learned over Easter weekend that our only child is pregnant and actually due on my birthday November 30th. Oh I have waited for this!! I am a former nurse who has had 7 spinal surgeries, have fibro, osteo and rheum. arthritis. I also have Lupus and am allergic to sunlight...lol no I don't have blood for breakfast emoticon Between the surgeries, inactivity, chronic pain, etc I have gained more that my fair share of excess weight. This also just increased by an additional 15 pounds because DH and I quit smoking 4 months ago. With the new baby on the way we know we will never go back to smoking, but that also gives me reason to shed these pounds and get to a healthy weight for that baby. So here I am.

I love to cook, quilt, crochet, garden, fish with hubby and read. So if you need a buddy through this process, here I am...



I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
When ever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give Faith a fighting chance
And if you get the choice to sit it out or dance...DANCE"
