Hello...I joined this team because I used to be a marathon runner in my early twenties. Then, in my mid-twenties, I got Lyme disease followed by chronic inflammation, rheumatoid autoimmune disease, and fibromyalgia. I want to be more active, fit, and healthy, but it's harder now and I'm feeling kind of lost and alone. I would love to be able to connect with other people who have pain conditions for tips and support. Thank you.

Goal date: July 4th! AKA Independence from being overweight day!

Hi! I am Elaine from Malaysia. I have SLE and have been on dialysis for 13+ years. The hardest part is the fluid and diet control. There are many things I have to limit like dairy and nuts. I hope to make lots of new friends here!

I'm sorry no one replied to your posts, Karen and ATEAMSIS08. I have been away for a while and just now getting back. Checking out the posts and trying to be an encouragement to others as well as get motivation for myself. I hope you both are still here and find the help and inspiration you need for your journeys to better health and relationships with God.
I wanted to share a book I read that is a different approach to dieting, called The Jesus Diet by Robin Merrill. It's an easy interesting read, arranged more like a daily Bible devotional. Thought you might like it, Karen. Anyway, hope you see this reply and stick around so we can get to know you!

Hello everyone, I may be giving out too much information, but here I go. Back in 2003 I was diagnosed with Shingles and also the initial scare of my life of the devastating news that I was HIV positive. My first question was why me? Is my son or my loved ones infected? Am I going to die?
What I have learned then and know now is that GOD is an awesome GOD. After almost 14 years, I have learned so much about this illness and more about myself.
I love the relationship that I have with my doctors and that we are all on the same page.
I look forward to having the courage to sharing this story with others as time goes on.

Hi. I have been yo yo dieting and am getting nowhere with eating disorder counseling. My weight has soared to an all time high. I am trying to entrust my body to the Lord, but mostly it's foxhole prayers and pleading for healing. I need to trust and look towards the Word. Pain is awful today. Have several illnesses. Stay at home a lot. Hoping to press in for healing and not give up!

Hi, I am Jan and I have ME/cfs, so am unable to exercise at all. Just a struggle to cook evening meal and do a little bit of something else, maybe. So for me to get my weight down and keep it off is a challenge. Looking forward to chatting with others in the same boat.

Deb here. I don't have a diagnosis, kind of going with fibro suspecting RA. I'm a homeschooling mom of three special needs kiddos (one with juvenile arthritis & epilepsy), and I'm often thoroughly overwhelmed. My doc and I have find a fairly good combo of meds to manage the worst of my pain, and I'm grateful. I start reach day with feeding the critters, coffee and Jesus. I'm a hot mess and I can't imagine how much worse off I'd be without that time too journal, devo and pray!

I am giving sparkpeople a second try. As a Christian and following Gods will I have discovered that Satan loves to use the daily dose of pain and the impact fibromyalgia has against me. I struggle while still working full time and trying to finish my phd in psychology which if I stay on course should be this coming sept. with dissertation done ready for publication. I plan to write a couple of books on on domestic abuse survivorship and God still loving you in spite of the ingrained thoughts drilled into one's head and I also intend to write about God's use of fibromyalgia and one's ability to still serve Him.

I am a grandmother of 5 (my youngest born this past Christmas eve). God is full of wonder and amazement.

Hello, Susan. Welcome to the team. I am also dealing with Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholosterol, obesity, etc. and I have just gone through surgery for Lung Cancer.

Hi my name is Susan and I deal with type 2 Diabetes, arthritis, degenerative Disc Disease, Hypothyroiism, Vitamin D Deficiency, bone spurs, chronic pain, high blood pressure, obesity and a few other things. I serve a God who is bigger than all of these but there are days I feel defeated.

Today marks my return to SparkPeople. I lost 35 lbs over 5 years ago with the aid of SparkPeople and a healthy, whole food, vegetarian lifestyle. However, when I turned 40, I had a bad fall. My health and mobility have drastically declined since that fall. I am finally, after 4 years of trying to get medical help, started physical therapy recently. Slowly, I am working to get my mobility and stability back. My health has also struggled because of the fall. I was already hypoglycemia with borderline diabetes, but the lack of ability to exercise and the stress and struggles in life helped to cause the type 2 diabetes to kick in full swing. As well, I battle skin cancer, which I am currently healing from quarter sized removal of skin on my side. I also battle chronic fatigue of unknown origin and many other heath issues and take way to many medications for someone only 44 years old. I am very knowledgeable of what it takes to improve my health through diet and activity, but I need the motivation and support of others to keep me going. I am hopeful to find local connections with like-minded individuals to befriend for walks, fellowship, and other activities.

I'm new here. Was on SP years ago and don't really know why I left. Two knee surgeries on the right, and bone loss on the left. Many procedures on the back, all lumbar and one 'S' disk are ruptured on both sides. The beginning of spinal stenosis.Rupture cervical disks, Dr says don't be in another car accident, it won't be pretty. I hadn't planned on it. Least of my difficulties is neuropathy in my left ear root nerve, branching out to the entire left side of my face. So, I'm still pushing forward. I need structure to keep me focused. Weight loss will help with my knees and back. I'm still working, but some days it's tough to get up and go. But I'm not ready to go on disability. My superiors at work are good to me. I have a desk job, so having my periodical breaks are very much needed, and they understand. I'm under FMLA to protect me during bouts of extreme pain when I'm going to the pain specialist regularly. Enough of me. I'm happy to be here.
Oh yah, almost forgot, asthma and high blood pressure are in the mix also.

Hello all! Have had two cervical and one lumbar surgery. And going back to neurosurgeon this month for possibly another that showed a change on mri. Chronic pain 24/7. Lost career I dearly loved and was using my spiritual gifts at and now on disability. I so want to get this weight off! It's so hard, as you all know. I will be learning how these groups work as I've tried before and got lost in the maze of it all! If anyone has a link for groups and spark pages and how work I would appreciate it. Blessings to all and I hope to be an encouragement to others here as well!!!!

Hi ladies!! :)

My name is Diana and I am happy to be here. I am chronically ill and have daily pain from a rare pancreatic disorder called Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Type III. I have since developed chronic pancreatitis and high blood pressure. I have been sick for almost 5 years but I've been maintaining and managing my illness for about a year and a half.
Depression has been an ongoing issue for multiple reasons, I'm sure a lot of you will understand. Not being able to be a better wife and mother, always feeling like a burden on my family. The 22 surgeries and procedures, 58 pills I now take a day to keep my symptoms manageable, the continuous ER visits, etc.
But even with all of that, I am happy to say I've finally accepted my illness and am in a good place emotionally. I honestly attribute it to my choice to go back to church and walk with the Lord. I feel so happy to be doing this not only for myself but for my husband and my boys.
Since I am finally in a good place emotionally I want my outside to match inside. :)
Being so sick and stuck in a hospital bed or in bed at home, off and on for the past 5 years has made me gain 70+ lbs. I finally have the emotional baggage under control! I'm ready to have that physical baggage off of me too. :)

I'm praying with the help of like minded ladies like you all and the strength of God I can complete this journey not only for myself but for my family.
I have a few goals for this journey:
1. To develop a more meaningful and fulfilled relationship with God.
2. To be half way to my goal weight, if not more, by my 30th birthday (December of this year).
3. To complete my first half marathon.
I look forward to getting to know all of you. :)

Hi, my name is Sindia, I am a christian and dealing with chronic pain related to a recent back surgery. I am dealing with chronic pain in my lower back, down the back of my right leg, I also have neuropathy in my feet and on top of all this I have severe shaking, stronger than tremors or muscle spasms, in my legs that come and go whenever they want.

Looking forward to getting to know my team members.

Hi Kim,
The thyroid condition sounds like what I have. Do you have Adrenal fatigue as well?
Only a Naturopath can diagnose this condition because of all the blood work they do. Otherwise, a mainstream doctor will dismiss it.
God bless you-Cindy

I'm not new to SP, but I am for this team. I have migraines, fibromyalgia, IC, & osteoarthritis. I haven't had a pain-free day in more than 20 years. It's just a matter of degree. Most of the time, I keep functioning. If I can't see because of the migraines then I stop. I've been a Christian since I was 16. Almost 40 years.

Welcome, Jineane. I have had both my knees replaced due to osteoarthritis. I am so happy I did. It is so nice to be able to get around without a cane or without so much pain. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.

Hi - I am Jineane and I am recovering from having a total knee replacement 7 weeks ago. I have had osteoarthritis in my knees for years and put off having the surgery, but am so glad I did. Just sorry I didn't do it sooner. I have the other knee to do yet so am still dealing with some chronic pain. I worked for 30 plus years as an x-ray tech, and have some back pain issues too.
I am looking forward to being a member of this team.

Hi. I am Julie. I am single mom to 10 year old Katey. Currently not working as my job ended at the end of August and I have been unable to find one yet. I had my 4th foot surgery a month ago also. I struggle a lot with depression and anxiety, it's been under control for a long time but with recent job loss and a recent diagnosis with my daughter, I feel lost. I have chronic pain, lupus and osteoarthritis too...lots going on....
I had VSG surgery in 2011...lost total of 107 pounds. Gained about 10 and am frustrated and need to get back on track.

*This is my goal:
Phil 3:13-14 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward to what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which Goad has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Hi, My name is Margie and I just came from another chronic pain group that fell apart. I have a disease of my gut called lymphangiectasia which causes me not to be able to absorb fat, and when I eat more than a tablespoon of fat in any form a day, my gut swells and I get pain. I get a lot of swelling in my abdomen, and for this reason I have clothes in sizes 10 through 16.

I am on a pain management plan with the fentanyl patch and norco. I have been on more or less the same regimen for about 18 months.

I look forward to being a member of this group. It's nice to see such active message boards. Feel free to write me, as I love to correspond.

Sincerely,
Margie

Hi. I am a 46 year old, married, mom of 2, physical therapist who has and who treats clients with chronic pain. I am 50 lbs over weight due to a combination of an undiagnosed autoimmune thyroid condition, an lack of exercise due to pain and the business of life.

I have been gluten, soy(well as much as I can since it is everything these day), and artificial sweetner free or a year. I had not realize how significantly my pain had decreased until I at some of the "slim snacks" Thursday and was almost unable to walk downstairs Friday morning!

So I am going to stick with slim 4 life since I made the financial investment (although I did not let them talk me into buying the 4000 dollars of food supplements I need to complete my plan-whew!). It gives me a place to be held responsible and check in.

Looking forward to getting involved with this group!

Hi- I'm Cindy. I've had peripheral Neuropathy for about 10 yrs. I always have some level of pain in feet & hands, if I'm on my feet a lot or having a lot of stress it's worse. Sometimes it's worse for no known reason. Right now I'm dealing with a badly sprained ankle from falling down some steps (neuropathy causes balance problems because of numbness in the feet).
I've let myself get to almost 200 lbs (wow, that sounds worse when I see it in writing!). Since I can't do much wt bearing exercise I've given myself an excuse not to exercise at all. I love to cook & eat.
It will be good to hear from others who turn to God & each other to deal with pain & limitations
Blessings to all

Hi, my name is Donna and I am so happy to find this group. I have been suffering with chronic back ache for over ten years. I have also been suffering with Labrynthitis since last September which has been very debilitating. I have been off work for eight months and have found it very hard to exercise and eat right. I am determined that I will put this right and get fit in spite off my pain.

Thanks for the group.

Hi! I'm Elizabeth.

I had a mini (transient ischemic) stroke 12 years ago and lost the vision in my right eye. I had over half my colon removed 3 years ago after years of suffering. I have MS. And MS does hurt- nerve pain. I have an stomach ulcer from many medications. From my PCOS I have been pre-diabetic 37 years. I helped it along. And now I am milimeters away from type 2.

Kinda felt good just to say all that. I don't tell anyone. And I don't like to talk about it. But there it is.

After I had my last surgery I almost died and welcomed seeing Jesus!! :o) But He did not come. So I better take care of these things!

Hello and Hi. I've been living with chronic pain from arthritis in my spine for years and years. I mostly medicated it with Alleve - then ruined my stomach with it. Then I tried to simply ignore the pain (didn't work). Now I am trying to lose weight and exercise, as well as I've started going to Physical Therapy for it. I joined a gym and started going every day. I feel good about the progress, well, that I'm doing SOMETHING, but the process has brought even more pain. I'm really suffering right now. My husband is completely disabled, so I'm the one holding the household together and some days I just don't know how I do it. But I do! I thank the Lord daily that he gives me enough strength and patience to make it through. I like to have friends and contacts on SP to help distract me from my pain - so I welcome friends for this journey.

Hi everyone...

I am new to the group... I have been suffering with chronic pain for 2 years and trying to find a balance in my life. Dieting and exercise is hard! My spouse doesn't understand my pain and its great to find a place that can help me. I am hoping to learn and share a lot...

My name is Anne Arrowsmith and I am in Omaha, NE. I have suffered chronic back and hip pain since a car accident in 2001. I have been diagnosed with SI joint dysfunction and hip bursitis and wake everyday with pain. For the past 11 years I lived believing that God had given me this pain as a consequence for my intentional sinful behavior at the time I had my accident. It wasn't until I searched my heart did I hear the truth that it has been the enemy lying to me all these years. God had forgiven me years ago, but the enemies lies made me believe I deserved my pain.

So I joined a gym this week and am determined to increase my core strength and flexibility to help relieve some of the pain. I am going to rise above the lies and live to the glory of God throughout my physical transformation. Praise God for His forgiveness and self-forgiveness.

"I know that I have not yet reached that goal, but there is one thing I always do. Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead,I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ to the life above." Phil 3:13-14 (NCV)

I sit here at my job (I'm a nanny) telling myself something has to give with a Joyce Meyer teaching playing in the background. I have moved so far into bitterness and disobedience that my body is paying for it. By the way, I'm NaLonni. I have to, I must live - I can hear God telling me to get it together so.....I am thankful for this site. I hope to come back a year later or however long it takes and have a different life and outlook.

Being part of a team is a bit challenging to me, but I know I need support and encouragement. I am 57 years old and deal with chronic pain from spinal stenosis and major injuries suffered in a bicycle wreck 5 years ago. Because life gets hectic sometimes, I have neglected to take care of myself for the past year and am now paying the price. My goal is to get myself back on track spiritually and physically.

Going for the roses!

Hi. I just joined this team. My daily companion is pain. Rheumatoid Arthritis, MS and Fibromyalgia makes life challenging for me. I am a Christian and my faith is Roman Catholic. If I did not have a relationship with God, I could not make through some days. I am trying to take off weight once again.

Hi my name is Melanie and I am just getting started in this program. I have been overweight most of my life and I am tired of it. I need help in everything I do because I have a mental disablity as well as a physical disabilty. I need God's help very bad and I have been praying for it. I am afraid to start anything new as I tend to not follow thru with the program. I can't do that anymore. I started at 400lbs and now at 278lbs. I need to excerise and I hate to do that as it usually hurts me to do it. Please if there is anyone who can help me to stay motivated and do this right so that I can finally be in health, well better health! Thank in Jesus name!!!

May God give me the power to do this and succeed!!!

TY Darlene. So far, I do have a doctor picked out that has done wonders for someone with Lupus but she's not taking new patients yet. At this point, I've decided just to wait for her rather than bother with someone else from the office. The more I read on the Swank Diet, the more I am reminded of how well I did when I had gone vegan, which is a lot like Swank except you are allowed fish and poultry and egg whites on Swank. I'm starting this even before I see a doctor because it's not like it's going to hurt me to follow its healthy guidelines I suppose.

Hi, Krissi, welcome to the team. I'm looking forward to getting to know more about you. I will be praying that you are able to find a new doctor to help you understand exactly what is wrong with you.
Good luck to you in your healthy lifestyle challenge.

Hi. I'm krissi. We're not 100% sure what's been wrong with me most of my life yet but everything keeps pointing to MS. As soon as I talk myself into seeing a new Dr, I'll find out for sure though I'm not entirely sure I still want to know anymore.

I'm soon to be 33, mother of two boys. My eldest has just started showing same signs of something wrong that I did in childhood. My youngest appears healthy in all ways n active, thank God. I just celebrated 7 years of marriage to a wonderful man who does all he can to help me build the facade of functioning so my parents don't know how bad I am. I think we all do this though I'm not sure why I'm so ashamed.

I'm interested in starting the Swank Diet until I can actually incorporate some meaningful movements daily. I'm looking to prove to myself that I'm not a lost cause n that I can turn this into something positive if I can just master tearing my thoughts away from the negative.
