Haven't posted in a while. Lots of things happening.

2-12-13 - broke my foot, 2-19-13 had surgery to put a pin in the bone, no walking for 12 weeks! Was in a boot and used a knee cart to get around. Because of the knee cart my arthritic knee kicked in full mode pain! I couldn't do much of anything. It hurt so bad all the time and was REALLY bad when I tried to ride my recumb bike. :( Went to see the ortho dr and my knee was at a 20 degree angle - normal is 7.
10-23-13 - had total knee replacement, weighed in at 268 (low was 234). Had problems with my blood pressure being too low so they kept me in the hospital an extra day with an IV. Came home dizzy and not able to keep anything down. Lost 10 pounds in two weeks after the surgery.
1-8-14 - dr put me on HP meds. Been running high since surgery - 142/92 average. I feel bloated most of the time but I have maintained the 10 pound loss.
1-31-14 - started at FitZone with a 6-week gift certificate. Haven't been going consistently but have been walking at work and using recumb bike at home.
2-24-14 - started tracking food intake again on SP, blogging daily on SP page the results of the day....holding myself accountable.

When I went to my bariatric surgeon in 10-18-13 I had gained again. She told me that the Bariatric Association had released that people 3+ years out should reduce their calorie intake to 1000-1200. She wants me to stay more to below 1100. No surprise there! I have to go back April 14 for a 6-month check-up to see how the weight loss is going. They were sympathic with all the issues thru the year last year but she wants to check my progress since having my knee replacement done.

With this weather my season disorder has been in full gear this winter - all I want is to cuddle in deep and not do ANYTHING! Full hibernation mode. Doesn't make it easy to keep yourself motivated when you are so BLUE. When I get cold, I get chilled to the bone and it takes FOREVER to warm back up. This morning it was -9 on the way to work.

I truly want to get back on the band wagon and get the weight loss going again. Everyone says that RNY is the lazy man's way out but it's not. It takes will and determination. It takes a want to. If I am to succeed it is up to me! :)

God bless,
Theresa

Hi I lost track of me since the beginning of this year. Been going through a lot of things with going to doctors and finding out that on top of my back problems, I have OA in my knee and bone spurs in my left knee.

I been facing a lot of stress, dealing with my second daughter. She decided to move out in the middle of the night and only take what she could easily put in one suitcase, and move to her bf's which we got told is homeless. Plus she changes bf's at least once every 1 to 2 months.

I collapsed at my son's wedding on Jan 4th, while I was dancing with my 3 yr old grandson. after that is when I found out about my knee problem.

My oldest daughter that lives in WA state and I are making a goal to lose 20 lbs by May 26th to help both her and I to have better health. So I asked the dr what I can do and he said to walk, and very low impact aerobics to not put pressure on my knees/back, aqua exercises(I can not afford).

I decided with my health issues, (OA, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and stress) I am going to have a notebook with me and take notes throughout the day every day to keep track of my intake(food), and output (exercise) along with blood test, bp, and stress levels.

Need a drastic changes in my life.

hugs
Shirley

The sky is the limit: you can do anything you put your mind to!!!!!!!!

The turtle on my ticker is how I want to lose weight slow and steady!!!!!!!

Weight lost goal is to lose 20lbs by May 26th, 2014

Hello everyone.......... On a team I am on, the leader asked what one thing we were proud of we had done. I pasted this from that page as it says so much .......... I don't know but likely there are people on the team that are affected as well? .......... emoticon

I am proud having proven Doctors wrong ... when it was prophesized (in my 20's) that I would be an invalid and wheel chair bound ............ emoticon ....(No disrespect intended for a physician, BUT it is MY life.... My spine did fuse itself BUT I did not conform to this one's doom and gloom message. (arthritis of spine and neck)-called ankylosing spondylitis. Nor do I take medications as were told I MUST when diagnosed. I DID spend MUCH time walking, much dancing as I still do, swimming in order to find to keep the stiffness from making a cripple out of me.
Years ago, I did see a Rheumatologist a few times and this is what he said:
I don't know what you are doing but I would encourage you to KEEP IT UP as the majority of the patients I see suffer terribly w/ the pain and stiffness and clearly, you are in a league all your own." ............ Years later .............. I rarely miss a day of some kind of exercise, lots of stretching, pilates and I am a living example of how one CAN live above and beyond a diagnoses that had I listened to ......... I would be emoticon and unable to fully enjoy life to the fullest. At retirement age, I work Full time .. (just dropped to 25% less) ........... emoticon And I am proud that moments ago I finished nearly one hour of Zumba!! Don't let anybody give you a 'doom and gloom' message w/ out a fight!

Hello everyone I have the pleasure of being a new member of your team and looking forward to getting to know you all.I am a mother of four and grandmother of six soon to be seven. I am also a pastor and am more then willing to offer my help to anyone who may feel the need of someone to talk to.I am also here to start a healthier lifestyle and hopefully reverse my diabetes before having to go on insulin. So hoping that by encouraging each other we can achieve our goals.

I am satisfied that it is very true, not because I hate sugar,heck no, I don't know anyone who hates sugar , its what it does to us that we hate..

Pain is so difficult to bear. I will keep you in my thoughts. Does warm water help you? Sometimes I take a warmer shower and let the gentle water hit my back and focus on relaxing. I like hot bath water on occasion.

I cannot take pain meds due to an esophagus problem. I am allowed to have arthritis level acetaminophen in extreme situations. I do try to keep mobile. Simple stretches after walking help me.

Hang in there. We are with you.

I am on my way to better health!

I'm hurting.

I'm not trying to do too much, but even a little is hard right now.

I think the degenerative disc disease in my spine is wonking out my whole nervous system, and the arthritis in my lumbar/hip is discouraging.

I lost my Meloxicam and the MD didn't renew it.

I DID meet all of this team's goals today. That is a bright side.

I did log everything I ate and came in just slightly below the recommended caloric intake.

I've been grating fresh ginger and sprinkling cinnamon and tumeric onto everything remotely appropriate.

Now I should sleep. One of my challenges.

I am enjoying starting to get to know a few people here.

Thanks

Hi Friends!
I am Sandy Becker, a new team co leader. I received diagnoses of RA, OA, psoratic arthritis, and vitiligo. I did not know how many arthritis forms there were. Gulp! I have a lot to learn.
My RA was in remission 3 months after I was diagnosed. I took my meds, kept active with exercise, and ate sensibly following the Mediteranian Diet (and diabetic diet of my husband). I am a caregiver for him; he is on peritoneal dialysis.

My strengths are my deep faith and positive attitude. I also have Barrett's esophagus so no nsaids for me. Recently I had a robotic hysterectomy. I'm bouncing back nicely. I had to give up my RA meds for a month. So far so good. I have stayed in remission with diet, exercise, hot water, and support gloves to keep my joints from swelling.

I am open to hearing about what troubles you. I'm very new in this role. I want to not only spread the spark, but offer support.

I am on my way to better health!

1.Yes I was named after my Mom's sister Peg. 2. I haven't really narrowed things down to a motto in life except to serve God the best I can. 3. If I was sure I wouldn't fail, I would open a business with my husband with me doing sewing & crafts & him doing woodworking.

Hi my name is Sara. I am 29 years old. When I was 24, I injured my back, and the MRI not only showed a nasty herniated disk, but also spinal stenosis that was quite extensive. Two years later I had surgery for the injury, and the surgeon was able to help me with the stenosis quite well, although if I stand in place or overdo things, I get extremely stiff. This past May, I injured my knee. They suspected a meniscus tear, but just a few weeks ago, an MRI showed early signs of OA. I am currently in PT, starting an at home program and trying to stay active. I love to do kickboxing, tennis and ballroom dancing, but for the moment, it's not in the cards. Apparently, my early OA is mixed from genetics, inactivity, and now gaining weight.

Hi, my name is Liz. I am happily married with two daughters and one granddaughter (all of which still live here with me at home). I'm not new to neither this group nor SparkPeople, but I had fallen off the wagon for a while and thought I'd start all over again from the get go ... that includes my Spark groups/teams. I suffer from inflammatory disease. Was diagnosed with spondyloarthritis a while back. Right now, other than my hands, I'm okay. But you never know when there may be a flare up on the horizon. Hopefully I can be more active here than I have been the last several times I was on Spark.

Hi - I am new on Sparkpeople as well as this team. I am looking to both lose weight and improve my arthritis, which is sorely affected by the weight. I am female, widowed, work in NYC, have just put 3 young women (mine) through college, and am looking to start the next phase of my life. I hope to get encouragement and maybe some infromation from this team, and hope to be able to help someone else as well. Meanwhile, I am learning the site, and hope you all have a great weekend.

One day at a time; slow and steady. I just wish I were more steady and that the weight did not come off so slowly!!
