Why am I here

Friday, April 29, 2016

Why am I here. I want to lose weight...It is good for me, will make moving around easier, etc. Some days it just seems too hard to even get out of bed. I've had fibromyalgia for 18 years.

When I was raising my kids I was Wonder Woman now I'm moving to a tiny house because I can't keep up with housework. I weigh about 100 lbs more than I did when I was "normal". I used to ski, volleyball, tennis, water ski, baseball. As one of my son's friends told his wife recently - I was one of the guys. Now, I don't have any sports equipment, I sold my boat and I have bottles and bottles of medicine.

So: Why am I here?

Because I absolutely refuse to give up.

    Not giving up is what we need to do. I have gained back and added weight from where I first joined SP. This happened after I broke my ankle in June 2012. I am eating healthier than when I first started SP and I have gained many friends which is a great plus.

    “If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don't work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!”

    I'm proud of you for having the courage to write this, and having the determination to never give up! People say to take "one day at a time"...sometimes you have to take it one HOUR at a time...but you CAN do this!

    When I started last September, my knees ached just walking, so I wore knee supports and walked anyway. It got a little worse before it started to get better, but 50 pounds later I am walking pain-free MOST of the time, and have even been able to do a little jogging!

    When I started I was on 2 different blood pressure I'm on one!

    Moving gets easier...last night I even tried a ballroom dancing class. I was HORRIBLE emoticon and I don't plan to go back, but I didn't hurt myself or get as out of breath as I used to.

    I've had fibromyalgia for 21 years. I gave up for awhile. Now with all my other health issues I have lots of trouble but I make myself get up and move. I still have trouble with the housework - I hate it. Good luck. You can do this.
