A fight for life.

Hi sparkpeople…..
Thank you for all of the support that I have received when I have attempted weight loss over the years.
Well I need some serious support right now. It is so difficult to face the reality that you are sick. For a long time, because I have been around people for years that have been overweight and lived long in years I kind of stay in denial of my own health status thinking I can go on and and on yo yoing with my own weight. Twice I have been diagnosed with insulin resistance and I struggle with my hormones. I even had a doc say he believed I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome but, upon some research. I think it all comes back to the insulin resistance. At this point I am miserable my body aches, I feel weak, I won’t come off my cycle and my weight feels like it is increasingly holding me down. I feel like I am in such a battle because the IR just keeps me craving food. I could really use some encouragement from the spark community and maybe some tips from people with this same problem who are still in it or have won the battle who has dealt with or who are severely obese. I am 5, 5 and over 300 lbs. I am even to discouraged to get on the scale today.

    Hey NC....
    Yes you ARE...a New Creation in Christ and He loves you with an everlasting love.
    I will be praying for you. I'm 5'1" and hanging on at 210 (high was 242) and have diabetes, Meneire's, high BP, cholesterol etc.
    We KNOW our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirt...yet acting on what we know takes effort and isn't always a load of fun, but it can be done~ thru Christ who strengthens us!

    May the God of all comfort hold you, encourage you, strengthen and protect you as you strive to get healthy and be restored.
    I'm in the boat with you...let's grab those paddles!
    Love and hugs,
